How to maintain a healthy diet
Are you giving your dog the exact same food day after day after day? It can not only lead to boredom but also limit the spectrum of nutrients and even increase their risk of food sensitivities.
Rotational feeding is switching up your pup’s menu on a regular basis to broaden their palate and incorporate more nutrients into their diet. It’s easy to start doing but should be done safely.
Keeps your dog excited
Dogs often become fussy about their food when they get bored with it.
Boredom can also make them eat non-food items like dirt or garbage, which could be dangerous.
Switching up your puppy’s food keeps them open to new foods and makes mealtimes more exciting.
There are a plethora of microorganisms in your little furball’s gut that are helping him digest his food properly.
So, when you change up your pet’s diet and include different types of foods containing fiber and probiotics, you increase their longevity.
Rotational feeding means your fur baby will be able to take in a wide range of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. Moreover, a varied diet reduces the risk of your dog developing food sensitivities later in life.
For our dog Abby, we switch between chicken and eggs on a regular basis. We do two boiled eggs in her dinner for two days and then a palmful of chicken for the next two days. This goes on for six days of the week, and then we skip the protein altogether on Sunday to give her tummy a little break.
Going completely grain-free is never advised unless your dog is allergic to grains. We switch between red rice, white rice, and ragi flour for a grain-inclusive meal. We do boiled veggies and yogurt for a grain-free meal.
We keep things interesting for our dog by providing an assortment of different textures at mealtime. We give her dry kibble 1-2 times a week and home-cooked food the rest of the days. When we travel with our dog , we keep different types of dry food for uncertain times.
Here is a general timetable to transition your dog’s diet:

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
