What is the best Pitbull food?
I firmly believe that one of the best solutions is home made cooking rather than feeding poor quality dog packaged food which is usually loaded with all kinds of chemicals, preservatives and so on.
The saying “dogs only eat dog food because the can´t cook” is very very true and if you´ve ever owned a dog then you know what I am talking about.
Of course now days dog owners are more critical as to what pitbull food they should choose and as a result it forced some dog food companies to come up with high quality packaged dog foods.
However, keep in mind that because many of the original nutrients and enzymes in dog food are destroyed during processing, a strict diet of processed food is not sufficient and is at best unnatural for dogs.
But wait, not everyone has the time to cook every day for his pitbull so here is my advice on this matter.
Let´s say that you decided to incorporate home made food into your pitbull´s diet, well that´s great but there are some guidelines that you should follow.
You want to make sure that you provide all the nutritional blocks that keep your pitbull healthy.
The pitbull food should include animal protein combined with vegetables, pasta, rice, cereals and other foods that give the right combination of protein, carbs, fats and vitamins.
Generally meets that are lower in calories such as turkey, chicken (remember no bones) and lamb are better and so is salmon for fish. (great omega 3 source).
Good vegetables include carrots, broccoli and leafy greens.
For carbs you can use pasta (with some sauce will keep your pitbull more motivated to eat it..), rice, oatmeal.
Finally you can also feed fresh fruit such as banans, apples, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
Some human diet foods you want to ABSOLUTELY AVOID to feed your best friend include:
Chocolate, pastries, bread (especially white), onions, fresh garlic, raisins and grapes.
Remember, coocking will take more time than feeding packaged food but ultimately will be better and save you some trips to the vet along the way.
But Andrew what if I don´t have the time to cook?
Well, then you should choose from the highest quality pitbull food you can possibly find.
