How to choose a 100% natural diet for your dog?

eztalks | 02 April, 2018 04:20

It is already a truth that for all of us / as we have dogs / as nutrition is one of the fundamental priorities and that a good decision in this area can make your joint happiness greater and more lasting.

Another issue is knowing how to choose your main food since the volume of information (and disinformation) is overwhelming, although it is true that most want your friend's nutrition to be as natural as possible.

Natural is a word that gives rise to many interpretations as we see more and more products adding to their packages, names and advertising, so we wopet want to help you identify 100% natural products giving you a few clues.

What is a natural food?
Without pretending to sit chair, we can consider a natural food both for its composition, that is, without artificial additives, as for its state, that is, that it has gone through the least possible processing. In this way, a product that contains natural ingredients will not be the same as those that advertise being 100% natural. Also, we could think that a product that goes through a process that alters its properties as the heated, would be less natural than a product that does not suffer any alteration.

It is necessary to distinguish between a natural product and an ecological product. Ecological goes a step further by ensuring that raw materials have not been exposed to chemical agents (neither in their growth nor in their process phase) to which non-organic products are exposed. Notice that we are not talking about zero exposure.

How can I be sure that a food is 100% natural?
The regulation of feeding for pets, as well as feeding for humans, is not as transparent as we would like, but it does allow us, through labeling, to obtain interesting clues:

Recognizable ingredients: in the product, be it a feed, a can or fresh food, the ingredients and their components should be clearly described and be recognizable as natural.
Clearly chemical ingredients: little to say, if the food label, in some of its parts, names elements that you do not know what they are, it is not a good sign.
Nutritional additives: this entry in the formulation is clearly indicative of artificial additives
Clarification of origin: sometimes, certain additives do have natural origin, but then it must be indicated as such, for example, vitamin E when it is tocopherol.
Finally, if the label does not clarify it, in the era of communication there is nothing better than a telephone call. Any brand that wants and knows how to confirm those doubts on the phone could be a good candidate as the best option for your hairy.

If what you want is 100% real ... there is a way!
As with people, often the best way to know that something is 100% natural is ... to do it ourselves!

If we talk about natural foods that are also not processed (even heated) an option that may seem interesting are raw diets. It is basically to choose the ingredients between meats, vegetables, fruits and other elements, make a mixture according to some basic instructions and give them raw to your dog.
There is a lot of information for and against these diets, but the truth is that there are more and more people who practice them and recommend them in blogs and Facebook groups. What is extremely important is that they are complete and balanced, that is, that they have the variety and basic ingredients so that no nutrient is lacking.

What are the different types of raw diet?
Although there are several theories about how to prepare a complete raw diet, these are the most common:

BARF diet: its foundation is that dogs are opportunistic and often complement the meat with other things they can eat, such as vegetables and fruits. Therefore, its composition is as follows:
60 to 80% of meat, of which:
10-20% are viscera (with at least half of liver)
10% is pure bone (raw)
70% -80% is muscle meat (with 15-20% fat)
20-40% of vegetables and fruits of which:
70% are vegetables
30% are fruits
Nutritional supplements. To complete with the nutrients that are not in the meat and vegetables, it is always interesting to include a good source of omega3 acids such as fish oil or phytoplankton as well as a source of B vitamins, such as algae.
Prey model or model Dam: is based on emulating as much as possible the food that a dog would eat in freedom being a carnivore. Thus, people who follow this model tend to buy whole pieces, with their organs, skin and hair and give it raw. Some people approach this model by proportions, but its composition is mainly meat, organs and bone, with very little plant material.
To ensure that the food is complete, it is always important to ensure the variety of ingredients and, if you can, that you are based on what is written on the subject.

Where do I begin?
Currently there is a lot of literature about raw diets both on the internet and on social networks, including specific groups that share recipes, trends, information on where to get ingredients, as well as the latest studies, etc.

In addition, they will help you to organize yourself so that you invest the just and necessary time to make large batches that then freeze and take off little by little.

What happens if I do not have time or I do not dare to create my own diets?
Fortunately, there are already some commercial brands that sell mixed products with the right proportions and ready to serve. Just inform yourself, read their labels to make sure they are 100% natural products and, why not, call them to explain what you are buying.

At the end of the day, what is your little one going to eat every day and they are what we care about the most, yes?

Advantages and Disadvantages of Automatic Dogs Feeders

eztalks | 02 April, 2018 04:18

The day-to-day bustle makes us more distracted than usual. That if work, home, food, children ..., everything becomes a real lack of control. That is why many people choose to place automatic feeders for dogs since we all want our best four-legged friends to feed correctly. The automatic feeders facilitate the task day by day.

In addition to choosing a quality feed that suits your size, your age and your physical activity, it is also important to choose the right feeder. We have said that automatic dog feeders help keep dogs healthy and well fed, but they also have their disadvantages, not everything will be advantages.


Advantages of automatic dog feeders

The automatic feeders are very practical because you just have to fill them and program them so that the dog can eat when his time comes, even if we are not at home at those times, which usually happens during work time. But that is not the only advantage we can find in these feeders. Let's see them all.

You control the exact amount your dog eats
One of the great advantages of having an automatic feeder is that it is perfectly controlled the amount of feed that the dog eats. At the time of programming you will have to put how much you want to leave, so you will know what your pet eats.

It is true that this can also be controlled thinking about the feed, but, like it or not, we often go in a hurry and take it by eye, which is not advisable. The dog should eat the amount indicated by the veterinarian, no more, no less.

The food is kept fresh and free of contaminants
If we leave the food outdoors it is vented, that is, it gives it air. This causes several disadvantages:

1,The first is that the feed becomes soft and the dogs will no longer want it to have a very different texture and flavor.
2,The second drawback is that it can be contaminated by being in contact with the air. Insects and other bugs can leave in the animal's food excrements and even eggs, which is not healthy for the dog.
3,The third and last drawback, which is related to the previous ones, is that the dog can get sick by eating food in poor condition.

Binge eating is avoided
The automatic feeders for dogs have a button that makes the food come out, a button that even the dogs themselves can press. The simple fact of having the food always at your disposal means that dogs do not have the need to eat everything that is put in the feeding trough, that is, they tend to avoid binge eating that is so bad for them.

Also, by having to activate them themselves, in some cases, of course, they are mentally stimulated. This stimulation makes your mind work much faster and agile.

Disadvantages of automatic dog feeders

Obviously not everything was going to be advantages. Having an automatic dog feeder also has the odd disadvantage that we must know first hand to decide if we want it for our dogs or not.

It is more expensive
The automatic feeder has a higher price than the conventional feeder. This is because the automatic carries a system of advanced technology that the conventional does not need to not be an automatic food dispenser. This extra makes the price to pay more expensive.

You have to be aware of the battery
Unlike conventional feeders, automatic dog feeders work with a rechargeable battery or batteries. What does this mean? That we have to be attentive to the charge that the battery has so that the furry four-legged does not run out of food. If we are at home, there is no problem, since we can solve it at the moment, but if we have left we will not be able to do it, so the dog will run out of feed.

alt

They are more likely to break down
Obviously, a conventional feeder will not suffer any type of damage because we are the ones who have to fill the bowl. On the other hand, the automatic feeder can break down, which means that we will have to change it for another one or look for the solution to the fault that has been generated.

In this situation it happens as in the previous one, that is, if we are at home and the trough does not throw food, nothing happens, since we can do it ourselves. But if we do not find ourselves at home at that time, the problem can get worse because the dog will not have his daily food ration. This will cause hunger and even stress since you will see the food but will not be able to eat it.

These are the most important advantages and disadvantages that must be taken into consideration when purchasing an automatic dog feeder. It is true that it is much more comfortable, more hygienic and cleaner, but we must also take into account those drawbacks that this type of containers can generate.

Be that as it may, make sure your dog has his daily dose of food, be it feed or natural foods. The fact of not eating makes them nervous and stressed. Also, if they do not eat at home they will look for food while they are out for a walk. Never forget the feeder.

Wopet brings innovative pet feeders to market that enhance the joys of pet ownership by taking care of the pet easier and by positively impacting the pets daily life. And now many, many more caring cat and dog owners are empowered to maintain a healthy, consistent, stress-free diet for their pets.
