Dog Food Made with Love
We are what we eat, and same goes for our dogs! Here at North Paws Ranch, we mix in our own mixture of homemade food our current dog food kibble of choice, Victor.
We find that adding our mixture of food into the kibble gives our dogs an extra boost of energy and decreases shedding while promoting a healthy shine to their coat. Much like people dogs have different taste in food, texture and combinations. When we started feed our dogs our homemade food, we made sure that the dogs were okay with every ingredient we fed them.
The following is a list of foods that we recommend in your doggies homemade meals, along with the benefits and any interactions to watch out for:
Chicken delivers the high protein count dogs need without the dangerous calories they don’t. Poultry such as chicken delivers lean muscle mass as well as Omega 6 fatty acids to keeps their fur shiny and skin healthy. We ensure all chicken used is completely bone free and slightly prepped for cooking.
Brown rice is a great source of fiber and magnesium. Along with stabilizing blood sugars, brown rice is rich in antioxidants and helps with weight control. Like in humans, brown rice and grains can help dogs prevent a number of chronic diseases.
Sweet potatoes are as close to perfect as a food could come. This super food is not just super for humans, but super for dogs too. The high fiber content helps with digestive health as well as disease prevention. Potent antioxidants help aid in healing and can fight off the ill effects of aging. And fortunately, dogs LOVE sweet potatoes! They make great treat snacks for your dogs if you are looking for a healthy treat alternative.
This oil is another power packer for dogs. The antioxidants and nutrients provide great immune building and disease fighting properties. Coconut oil is basically a head to toe treatment as it helps clean teeth, aids with digestion and invigorates healthy skin and shiny fur.
Feeding your dog a homemade fresh food diet will lead to a lifetime of health benefits. You may notice a shinier coat, healthier skin and more optimal weight. An increase in energy may come with relief from joint pain and arthritis. The number of anti-viral, bacterial and fungal properties will aid the dog’s immune system in fighting off disease as well as preventing other illness or chronic conditions.
