Types of food for a wolfdog -  Cooked food

Cooked food is similar to raw (read about raw food!) and is certainly more preferable than granulated, industrially prepared. You still have an overview of what you give your dog. However, cooking food loses vitamins and minerals, and therefore we have to add it. Since cooked food does not contain bones - cooked is dangerous - we add calcium supplement to. In the pharmacy or the vet get a wide range of calcium products with precise dosing. Calcium is recommended to add naturally ½ teaspoon ground eggshell (milled in a coffee grinder). Alternatively, combine the cooked meat with raw bones and raw vegetables. This ensures the supply of calcium and vitamins.

Food must always be room temperature, never give dog frozen or hot food. Also, do not give the dog old, moldy food. Aim for variety - alternating meats, attachments. From the fleshy part should be around 10% - ie kidney, liver, lungs, ... The heart is a muscle, so it is not the guts. Up to 50% (ideally 70-75%) should consist the food from muscle, that is protein - meat, cheese, dairy products, eggs, ... The residue diet consists vegetables - either raw or cooked, shredded or mixed. Use as an attachment as grains - pasta, rice flakes, puffs. In other words - the meat 2 / 3 and dishes, vegetables 1 / 3 ration.

Combine granulated and cooked food is not recommended, as well as the raw diet. But if you want to combine the best is 50 to 50, for example. Half in the morning and evening dose granules cooked food, but never in a single dose. It is based on the amount of recommended daily allowance for packaging granular and half dose of cooked food by the table below. But I do not recommend combination of those! Combine the cooked and raw food is not harmful and can be combined in particular meat and bone attachments.

In preparation make sure that you do not cook the meat longer than about 20 minutes, would lose all nutritional value and digestibility. Do not forget to add the food quality fish oil, olive or cooking oil, fresh animal fat and various seasonings supplements, suitable for a dog. It is a good idea to offer your dog a raw beef bones, raw chicken necks or whether the wings, not just for fun, but also to clean the teeth from tartar and gum treatment. Suitable are preparations for the joints, preferably in its natural form - joints, skin, meat puddings, or in an artificial form.

Beware, when cooked food is a risk of breakdown of bones, and thus avoiding meat with small bones. Large bones, for example. marrow boiling hard and do not constitute a major risk. Conversely, the dog is well entertained. If you boil meat only to be withdrawn and the meat was not as bloody, the risk is lower, but the meat on the bone give rather raw.

Ration - the composition and quantity
Ration may not be the same every day. It changes so that within a week received dog several kinds of food. By amounts get oriented according to the actual weight of the dog. On one kilogram weight falls 30 to 60 grams of cooked food. By puppy is it 6-10% of current weight and 2% by adult. Attention! These percentages are indicative, each individual can lose weight for a given percentage of gaining or vice versa. Consider the degree of burden and adjust the dose according to the current state. Percentages are not dogma, but serve as a springboard, how much falls on the ration.

 

Age of dog Percentage of feed
2 - 4 months 6 - 10%
4 - 7 months 6%
7 - 12 months 4%
12 and more months 2%

Attention! This is a rule:

Cooked food + raw food

Cooked food + pellets

Raw food + granules

Do not mix granules with a home prepared food! It is a high burden of the stomach, change the ratio of substances in the diet to  unknown and do more harm than good. Only one kind of food!

What can you fed?

Meat - beef and pork muscle meat, fish (whole), chicken, rabbit, pigeon carcass, turkey, trachea, horse, deer, turkey, ostrich meat, lamb, kangaroos meat. In winter it is good to give more fatty meats, for the creation of fat over the summer can give light meats mostly. You can also offer canned fish - fish in its own juices, especially watch out for salt, are suitable for vitamins and are very tasty, just once a week.

Raw meat bones - if you want your dog to give calcium naturally, so do not forget the meat bones, ideal are turkey or chicken necks, wings, fuselages, thighs - coated meat, so. meat bones. Also suitable are large pork and beef bones, which in most butchers get free, never (!) do not give cooked bones. Bones serve coated with meat, so for example ribs. However, they may cause constipation, so serve with additional nutrients to balance the diet. Exceptions are cooked marrow bones. They boil briefly, and harden dog chew them  longer and don´t hurt him. The bones are hollow, the central part between the joints can we fill with molten cheese.

Guts - fed the kidneys, liver, heart, lung, stomach, tripe, brain, ... This, of what animals they are, is not important, it is advisable to have a proven source. Also suitable are trachea, ears, snouts, and the like.

Fruit and vegetables - in the rough is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Cut it into cubes or grate, or blend. Diet should contain 50% green leafy vegetables, other vegetables 30% and 20% fruit. Dogs can not make good use of vegetables and we have to help him To blend, diced or grated vegetables. Of course, some types of vegetables shall break itself :)

Eggs - whole served from 1 to 2 in week, no more, because they are a source of cholesterol.

Dairy products - you can add to the diet white yogurt, cottage cheese and other fermented products. Watch out for milk, not every dog shall bear him, and dairy products only 2 to 3 times a week - watch by puppy, dairy products are rich in phosphorus.
