What you feed your dogs is key to their overall health. The food your adult dog eats should contain the right balance of nutrients and minerals to keep them healthy. An adult dog’s nutritional requirements are very different to that of a human’s. Poor nutrition can lead to severe health concerns. Feeding your adult dog, a well-balanced dog food ensures that there is no over nourishment or under nourishment. Good nutrition keeps your dog at his peak.
Your dog is considered an adult between the age of 1 and 7 years old. Once your dog reaches the stage of adulthood, it is important to switch away from the puppy food he has been eating to date. Prolonged feeding of the puppy food into adulthood could result in your dog picking up excess weight as the activity and growth levels slow down yet the food is still catering for this. If you have a large breed dog, it is advised to keep him on puppy food until he is 18 months old and then switch him over to a suitable adult dog food.
Pet Hero stocks a wide range of premium and super premium adult dog food options. The various brands and options give you a choice in terms of quality and analytical constituents versus affordability and value for money dog food.
Some adult dogs have developed patterns or conditions that need a little bit of extra attention through their diet. If your dog is a little too chubby, be sure to purchase one of our light or weight loss options of dog food. Other specifics that are catered for range from skin and stomach weaknesses to high performance or working dogs that require a tailored diet due to the nature of their output and activity.
*Be sure to follow the feeding guidelines on the packaging of the adult dog food that you buy for your dog. Different brands and variations of food may have different feeding amounts and guidelines. If you change your dog’s diet from one adult food to another, it is recommended that you gradually introduce the new food mixed in with his old food until you have completely switched over to a bowl of the new adult dog food only.
