It’s not surprising that meat is the most important part of your dog’s diet. Meat is a massive source of protein for your dog and helps them to maintain a healthy weight and keep their muscles strong as they grow older. There are two types of meat that benefit a dog’s diet, and these are organ meat, which includes kidneys, heart, liver, etc., and lean protein, such as chicken and beef, etc. A balanced diet of both of these helps your dog to stay fit and strong.
Carbohydrates are essential for a dog’s balanced diet, and feeding them whole grains makes sure that your dog gets the right amount. Whole grains like barley and rice, are high-fibre carbohydrates that ensure your dog has the energy to run around and stay fit and healthy.

Introducing vegetables into your dog’s diet is a great way to make sure that they have the vitamins and minerals they need to stay strong and healthy. However, there are some vegetables that are harmful to dogs to eat.

That’s why it’s worth choosing a natural dog food that already includes vegetables that are safe for them.
