Tips To Make Healthy Dog Food For German Shepherds

A German shepherd is a powerful dog breed with a muscular body that craves and loves food.  It is also known as one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. Its fun-loving and playful nature makes it a great companion for kids and families.

However, a German shepherd grows very quickly and requires a healthy food diet to maintain its muscular build. Here are 5 tips to create healthy dog food for your German shepherd.

How to maintain German shepherd’s health via their diet

Feeding German shepherds the right meals would help increase their odds of staying healthy throughout their lifespan.

Generally, German shepherds are a healthy dog breed but similar to other breeds they are also prone to some common health problems like allergies, skin problems, and autoimmune diseases that can result in gastrointestinal issues.

The best way to keep your German shepherd healthy is to feed them with homemade food that doesn’t contain any preservatives, flavors, sodium, etc.

Prepare a balanced diet for them

It is imperative to give a balanced diet to your dog. Fresh homemade dog food that is rich in proteins, carbs, vitamins, and minerals would keep them healthy and suit their digestive system. You can consult your veterinary nutritionist to help you make a specific diet plan.

Give them meal rich in Proteins

Dogs usually enjoy eating food recipes that usually include chicken, fish, bones, or meat. Milk proteins are also good for a growing dog. You can also give alternate food sources such as plain yogurt, eggs, and cheese, etc.

Consult your veterinary nutritionist before starting your German shepherd on a raw meat diet. Some dogs may not be able to process a raw diet.

Give them fruits and veggies

Feeding fresh veggies and fruits to your German shepherd can improve their metabolism. Veggies such as carrots, boiled or steamed sweet potatoes, broccoli, and fruits like berries, bananas, apples (without seeds) are good for your dog’s digestive system. However, there are some foods that you should keep away from dogs.

About commercial pet food

Remember that German shepherds have smaller digestive tracts, so they cannot effectively digest grains. Many pet foods include grains such as wheat, soy, or corn that are not easy for a German shepherd’s sensitive digestive system to absorb. It may cause side effects such as allergies and skin disorders.
