A dog is a predator by nature, which means that its diet should be based on animal protein, but it should not be fed with meat alone. What products, in what quantities are suitable for a puppy, we will try to understand in this article.
First let’s define the main points:
The amount of food and the ratio of proportions are selected depending on the weight and age of the puppy.
Puppies younger than two months should be fed up to six times a day. Puppies from ten months and older are fed twice a day, but it is necessary to transfer to two meals a day gradually. Continue reading
By the type of their food, cats are true predators. In nature, they prefer different prey (mouse-like rodents, frogs, and even some insects). At the same time, they eat their prey whole. This concept of nutrition is incorporated into the cat food system, called the Prey model (Prey model raw, PMR), where cats are fed either whole carcasses of animals and birds, or a ratio of meat ingredients close to the “ideal prey”is used. For example, a diet containing 80-87% parts of the carcass with the heart, skin, tendons and fat, 5-10% – bones, 3-5% – liver, 5% – other offal. the prey model is used to create frozen and chilled animal diets.
The “whole prey” principle is taken into account by some dry feed producers (for example, the Whole Prey ratio is used when creating Acana Regionals 25 feeds). Continue reading
