Three Ways to Take Better Care of Your Dog

Compared to our human loved ones, dogs are wonderfully low-maintenance. They are not only perfectly content with who we are, flaws and all, they also love us unconditionally just for being there. All we have to give them in return is fresh dog food, shelter, and some attention when we can spare it.

Pyramid
But that being said, it’s important to make sure that you’re taking the best care of your furry friend as possible. Here are three ways most of us could take better care of our dogs, be it ensuring they’re eating a nutritionally-balanced diet, that they’re relaxed, and that we’re making time to focus on them and reciprocating the love they show us each and every day.

Reassess Their Diet

Whether you’re feeding your dog kibble from the grocery store or making him or her fresh food every day, you owe it to your pup to make sure they’re getting the proper nutrients they need in each and every meal. After all, our pups aren’t that much different from us: Neither of us should eat heavily-processed foods and both of us do much better on a fresh diet.

But that being said, not all fresh dog food is created equal. People cooking homemade meals for their dogs and practitioners of raw food diets are often inspired by a desire to feed their pups something fresher, tastier, and more nutritionally complete than kibble. Unfortunately, both of those diets can be dangerous and unhealthy, be it because they are nutritionally unbalanced or contain harmful pathogens that should be cooked out (or both).

For safe, nutritionally-balanced meals you can trust, look into a reputable fresh dog food delivery service. Your dog will thank you for it and you’ll know that you’re feeding your pup healthy meals you don’t need to worry about. You’ll want to make sure that the food is cooked in a way that safely kills any pathogens while retaining nutrients, such as the sous-vide method. It’s also important to research the brand to make sure that all of the products and flavors they offer have been overseen by a veterinarian nutritionist so they contain all of the necessary nutrients your adult dog needs.

Set Aside Quality Time

What your dog wants most in the world (with the possible exception of whatever you’re eating) is to spend quality time with you. So be sure to schedule regular time to hang out with your pooch and do whatever he or she wants to do. What exactly that is, you will likely know better than anyone else.

If your canine companion likes trips in the car and meeting new human and dog buddies, spend a day at the dog park. If they’re introverts, play fetch on the lawn until one of you tires out. Rough and tumble types will love some tug-of-war, and aqua-dogs will be delighted by a trip to the nearest body of water or a kiddie pool in the backyard (Just be mindful of the temps!). And if your best friend prefers nothing more than curling up on your lap for a movie marathon, break out the popcorn and some healthy dog snacks.

Give Them a Massage

OK, a dog massage might fall a bit more into the “pamper” zone, but it’s important to show your dog you’re there for him or her with some uber-relaxing pets. Dog massage is a concept many people are familiar with, although the process may not be familiar. To clarify, your dog almost certainly isn’t going to like the sort of massage you do. There are some who may enjoy deeper muscle and tissue massage, but for most it proves too intense.

To massage your pup, wait until he or she is relaxed, or relax them with soothing petting, and then massage them lightly with gentle but firm circular motions on their neck and back, on either side of the spine. You can also try gently massaging their legs, but some dogs aren’t as fond of that, so be sure to pay attention to your dog’s body language and any reaction if you give it a try. For more specific techniques, there are a number of instructional articles and videos available on the internet, and one can also hire professionals to massage your dog for you.

The Importance of Feeding Your Dog a Balanced Diet

The importance of a healthy, well-balanced, nutritionally-complete diet for dogs has become increasingly clear recently. Unfortunately, that understanding has come at the cost of some ill pooches. Health issues are commonly caused by one of two culprits: commercial dog foods having too little (or too much) of a nutrient, or well-meaning owners putting their dogs on diets that lack the appropriate nutrients or contain dangerous ingredients.

GroceryPup-189

Providing a balanced canine diet can be tricky because, despite being fellow mammals, the nutritional requirements of canines and human beings aren’t the same. Commercial formulations are generally preferable to homemade because they have been engineered specially for canine physiology. The trick to ensuring that your pooch eats healthy dog food is finding the right commercial formulation, and that can be harder than it seems.

Homemade Diets

There are two popular classes of homemade diets: raw and cooked. The philosophy inspiring the raw diet seems like it’s sound: Dogs have very recently (as the timeline of life goes) evolved from wolves, and wolves evolved to eat raw meat. Therefore, dogs are evolutionarily predisposed to eating raw meat (and bones and fruits and veggies), like the little wolf-creatures they are.

The thing is, look at a Chihuahua; as closely related as domestic dogs remain to wolves, they’ve all undergone a good bit of divergent evolution. Not only can raw dietsbe nutritionally insufficient, they canalso be downright hazardous. Raw meat poses an infectious pathogen risk to both dogs and humans. Additionally, bones pose a choking hazard, can break or damage teeth, and are capable of obstructing or perforating a dog’s digestive tract. Human food and human grade dog food aren’t necessarily the same thing.

Cooked dog meals eliminate the pathogen risk but are still virtually always, like raw diets, nutritionally incomplete without supplementation. And that supplementation practice can be extremely complex. The cook has to be aware what specific nutrients a dog requires, what nutrients are in each meal to begin with, in roughly what quantities, and how much of those that aren’t there that need to be added. Precision counts too, because while nutritional deficiencies can have long-term health consequences, too much of a vitamin, mineral, or protein can be toxic.Recently, a study found 95% of homemade recipes to be nutritionally unbalanced. Plus, there’s the risk of cross-contamination from all those human foods that are poisonous to dogs.

Commercial Dog Foods

Considering all of the risks, research, and hassle accompanying attempting to formulate your own balanced dog meals, several times a day, every day, it’s a small wonder that commercial preparations are far more popular. But sadly, as mentioned, those commercial foods are also not without risks.

To clarify, a good portion of commercial dog foods are safe. But there have been issues.Specifically, nutrition-related incidences of commercial food issues include those with too few nutrients, excessive levels of nutrients, or recipe formulations that have been demonstrated to be insufficient. For instance, a number of higher-end “grain free” brands were recently linked to an increase in canine dilated cardiomyopathy, which can be fatal, likely due to a deficiency of taurine. (Fortunately, taurine can be found in animal livers such as beef liver and turkey liver.)

The point is, even the commercial brands can make mistakes, which adequately demonstrates the risks of people without doctorates in veterinarian nutrition making up meals for their dogs. The best bet for fresh, safe, delicious, nutritionally-complete dog food is to find a reputable provider of cooked, human grade dog food with a formulation that’s overseen by a veterinary nutritionist.

Possible Causes of Your Dog’s Picky Eating and How to Entice Them

There’s a good chance that anyone who’s owned a dog has encountered episodes of picky eating at least once or twice. While it’s usually a transient behavior, a dog refusing to eat or eating very little can still be a source of anxiety, frustration, and wasted pet food. Thankfully, both short- and long-term picky eating are generally both harmless and issues that can be fixed.

cropped-824a8349_small.jpg

Sudden Picky Eating

While picky eating is, as mentioned, usually not a medical or health concern, sudden and prolonged loss of appetite can be. If your dog has always been a reliable and enthusiastic eater and abruptly refuses to eat or eats very little for more than a day, that can be a cause for concern.

Though keep in mind that excitement and anxiety can both result in loss of appetite. If your dog is traveling, a new pet has arrived, or some other significant change is taking place, some appetite loss from nerves or excitement is normal.

They’re Full From the Last Meal or Just Not interested

Most mammals share the same basic gastrointestinal layout, soour eating habits are often not all that different. So, like us, sometimes your dog is still full from an earlier meal or simply isn’t hungry for no identifiable reason.

If someone’s been a bad boy or girl and found a stash of treats, gotten intoa bag of food, the cat’s food, etc.he or she may be perfectly content to skip dinner. And sometimes, being dogs, they eat things other than fresh dog food—things we’d prefer not to know about—that upset their stomachs for a while. If their appetite is back within a day, they’re almost certainly just fine.

Food Issues

Unsurprisingly, the food your dog is eating (or not eating) can be a major source of picky eating. Some pups are notorious “the grass is always greener” eaters, particularly if another pet in the same family is being fed a different kind of food. They’re seemingly convinced that you’ve chosen to give them the boring food while blessing other pets with the ambrosia food of the gods. Or, having been given a treat, they decide that only treats will serve to slake their hunger.

Switching your dog’s food can trigger picky eating as well. Even days or weeks after the switch is made, dogs can suddenly decide that they liked their old food better. It’s possible that they have made that decision because the new food is hurting their stomach. Consider trying a sensitive stomach dog food. Finding a healthy food that your pooch likes and tolerates well can sometimes require some trial and error.

Solutions for Picky Eating

There are some basic, universal steps that can help. If you’re feeding your dog any table scraps or people food, stop doing so cold turkey. It’s just never really a good idea. It can be unhealthy, fill them up, and encourage bad habits. Also cut down on the treats. Optimally, treats should only be given as a reward or as a rare and special, well, treat. They shouldn’t be expected. If you’re free-feeding, switch over to two or three meals a day with measured quantities based on the dog’s size, weight, exercise level, and breed. And keep their bowl away from distractions.

Delicious food helps quite a bit as well. Find an online fresh dog food delivery service, one that cooks its food sous-vide to maintain its moisture while killing pathogens and retaining the food’s nutritional content. It’s a rare dog that won’t enthusiastically eat safely cooked human-grade meals.

Lessons Learned From National Cook for Your Pets Day

On November 1, a little-known holiday came and went: National Cook for Your Pets Day. The holiday was created as a means to highlight proper pet nutrition. Beyond the value of reminding pet owners how essential a fresh, balanced, nutritional diet is for their pet’s health and quality of life, National Cook for Your Pets Day is popular because it speaks to an impulse so many pet owners have.

GroceryPup-189

That impulse: to find a way to thank our cats and dogs for the unconditional love and affection they show us. While we may not be able to articulate how important they are to us with our words, the language of love that our pets are sure to understand is food.

When done right, cooking for your pet provides delicious and nutritious meals your dog or cat will savor (though probably not slowly). Done wrong, it can result in dangerous short- and long-term health risks. Which is why understanding those benefits and risks, as well as alternatives, is crucial.

The Benefits of Cooking for Your Pets

There’s been a substantial recent uptick in pet owners’ concern about the ingredients being used in pet foods and treats. That’s not surprising, considering the recent revelations about the quality and composition of the ingredients in many commercial pet foods and treats. And even more disturbing for pet owners, contaminations that have sickened—and in some cases even killed—thousands of pets.

The shift to more natural food for pets is based on the sound principle that fresh, human-grade food is both better-tasting and better for domestic animals than a daily ration of questionable kibble. Many of those kibbles containing carbohydrate-heavy fillers, rendered meat and animal by-products (the less you know about these, the better), low-quality proteins, low moisture, etc.

So there’s little question that feeding a pet healthy dog food or healthy cat food makes for happy and hearty dogs and pussycats. However, as mentioned earlier, when homemade pet food isn’t prepared properly, it can be dangerous.

The Risks of Cooking for Your Pets and Safe Alternatives

One of the movements that emerged from the fresh pet food trend was the raw food diet. Intuitively it seems like a good idea, as the wild relatives of dogs and cats were eating raw food. But, the thing is, the life expectancy of the wild relatives of dogs and cats was generally a fraction of what it is for pets.

One of the reasons for that is that raw food can contain dangerous pathogens capable of causing illness and even death. As such, raw diets have, appropriately, become far less popular. That’s given some of those cooking up human grade dog food or cat food the impression that cooking renders those foods safe, which unfortunately isn’t the case.

There are dozens of human-friendly foods that are really bad for dogs and cats, cooked or raw. Grapes and raisins, avocado, citrus, coconut products, dairy products, many nuts, and allium foods like garlic, chives, and onions are just a few that can sicken or poison pets. And some products well-meaning owners cook, even when trying to avoid unsafe ingredients, may still contain them.

But by far the biggest risk of creating meals for your pet isn’t that you’ll accidentally mix in something they shouldn’t eat—it’s that the meals you cook will very likely be nutritionally unbalanced. In fact, research involving 200 home-prepared dog food recipes found that a staggering 95% of them were nutritionally unbalanced. This is due to a mix of people adjusting the recipes they get from vet nutritionists and being unaware that pets have very specific nutritional needs. Unfortunately, feeding your dog or cat unbalanced meals with nutrient deficiencies can lead to major, even fatal issues. The damages from this are gradual and can’t be reversed, so by the time pet owners find out what’s happened, it’s typically too late to fix.

There are, of course, safe alternatives. One of them is, well, practicing safety. Be vigilant about your ingredients and their sourcing and, if possible, cook everything sous-vide to preserve nutrition and moisture. Research has found that vegetables cooked via sous-vide retain nutrients better than when cooked using other methods. And if you’re going to cook meals at home, be sure to use recipes developed by board-certified veterinary nutritionists in order to help avoid serving your cat or dog unbalanced meals.

Or, if that all seems a little daunting, consider finding a reputable company that delivers high-quality, human grade dog food that’s cooked sous-vide, and you’ll make your hairy housemate happy indeed. Grocery Pup offers fresh dog food delivery that beyond being delicious is also nutritionally balanced as the company works with a veterinarian nutritionist to make sure their recipes are both safe and delicious.

Kicking Kibble: Canine Cuisine Taken Up a Notch

If you have a dog and an internet connection, you’re probably aware that pet owners sometimes disagree about things. You’re also probably aware that on the internet, “sometimes disagree” means “argue profusely.” One of the most contentiously debated topics among those who debate pet-related issues on the internet is what to feed your dog. Or, far more importantly, what not to feed your dog.

It seems the most contentious of pet foods is kibble. The sheer volume of impassioned claims made for and against kibble vs. raw and fresh dog food can obscure the actual facts.

cropped-824a8349_small.jpg

So, according to those facts, what should a responsible dog owner actually feed their pup?

The Trouble with Kibble

As is the case with most big questions in life, the answer is more about a gray area than necessarily spelled out in black and white. Still, the anti-kibble crowd is backed up by some pretty compelling stuff. Many of the complaints are pretty common sense. Dry kibble can contain around 40-60% carbohydrates, it retains very little moisture (hence, “dry” kibble), and the protein in kibble is typically cringe-worthy feed-grade rendered meat. Not the highest quality, most appetizing stuff imaginable, and research on mammalian digestion found that, not too surprisingly, carnivorous pets digest actual foodstuff better than extruded kibble.(Though the worst consequence cited by that research is the possibility of bloating.)

Less benign-seeming, over years of testing, a whole slew of nasty-sounding and potentially carcinogenic chemicals have been found in kibble. In fact, the high temperature production method for making kibble has been linked to the Maillard reaction, which has been shown to create carcinogens—and that’s not what you want in your pup’s next meal.

As a caring, cautious dog owner it’s best to err on the side of caution when it comes to what you serve your pup. After all, you probably wouldn’t dish up a meal for yourself with by-products, rendered meats, fillers, and chemicals—which are often found in commercial dog food—so why would you for your fuzzy best friend?

Next-Level Doggy Dining

There is an option that bypasses the aforementioned kibble issues. And apologies to the raw dog food camp—it’s not turning to a raw diet. Though the use of real human grade food in raw diets, when served in the appropriate portions, can be great for dogs, the risk of pathogens in raw food is considerably higher than it is for kibble.

The key is finding a reputable fresh dog food delivery outfit online that prepares human grade dog food and employs a “gentle cooking” method, such as sous-vide, to cook your pup’s meal safely and kill pathogens. This method provides your canine connoisseur with safe, moist food that has the balanced vitamin, mineral, and general nutrient content that only real food has. And, perhaps most importantly to your pup—flavor that blows kibble out of the water.

If you’re concerned about kibble, give fresh dog food delivery ago. Your canine companion will love you even more—if that’s possible.

The Safe and Healthy Alternative to a Raw Dog Food Diet

Supporters of the raw dog food movement are without a doubt coming from a place of love for their pups. They point out that raw food more closely resembles the meals that dogs and their canine ancestors would have eaten, so unlike kibble, a raw diet is exactly the sort of fare that dogs have evolved to eat. And those supporters are absolutely right.

That being said, does the fact that Spot or Lassie’s wolf ancestors ate nothing but raw food really mean that a raw diet is the best or healthiest way to go? And, if not, is there a healthy dog food alternative? For the answers to these questions, read on, dog lovers.

GroceryPup-289

Why a Raw Diet Isn’t a Great Idea

For those unfamiliar with the raw diet, it’s just what it sounds like—a mixture of uncooked foodstuffs. The most commonly touted formula for a raw meal is a 5:1:1 ratio of raw meat, fish, or poultry; veggies; and a carb like rice, sweet potatoes, or oats.

In defense of raw diet proponents, the raw regimen does have elements that are superior to a diet of kibble. For instance, raw food is generally easier to digest, it retains more moisture, and you tend to know exactly what’s in your dog’s bowl. That’s the good.

As for the bad: Raw food can have a heightened risk of harboring harmful bacteria. Having watched them eat things best not considered or discussed, we know that dogs have tough tummies. However, that doesn’t mean “invincible tummies.” Dogs can and do contract any number of nasty pathogens from eating bad food, just like us. And it’s not just owners serving up questionable chicken.

A disturbing FDA study that tested 196 raw pet food samples found Listeria monocytogenes or salmonella contamination in 47 of them. There are some additional risks, as raw meals made by pet owners and even some pet food companies can be nutritionally unbalanced, especially if an informed veterinarian nutritionist (with your pup’s best interest at heart)wasn’t involved in the creation of the meals.

The Healthy and Safe Alternative

So where does that leave us? The takeaway you’re (hopefully) left with after considering the benefits and drawbacks of a raw diet is that the best-case doggy dinner scenario is one that retains the benefits of a raw diet but without the risk.
Thankfully for dogs and their people, that’s an entirely doable scenario. The key is feeding your dog a diet of human grade dog food that has been professionally created and gently cooked via sous-vide. Overcooking results in food that’s not only less appetizing, but it also reduces the profusion of vitamins and minerals, resulting in less healthy food. And if it’s not tastier and healthier than the alternative, what’s the point?

The options for giving your pooch sous-videcooked, healthy dog food are the same ones you have for the obtaining of your own meal: You can make it or buy it. As sous-vide equipment isn’t common kitchen accoutrements and can be a bit of an initial investment, delivery of humangrade, sous-vide dog food from a reliable and responsible company such as Grocery Pup seems to be the most popular preference. Additionally, by ordering your pup fresh dog food from Grocery Pup, you can rest assured he or she will be eating high-quality, well-balanced meals in tasty flavors that were created with a veterinarian nutritionist.

Whatever you choose, if the result of that decision is your best friend getting food as healthy and delicious as he or she deserves, you’ve done it right.

Prepping Your Home for Your New Puppy’s Homecoming

Making the big decision to introduce a furry friend into your household can be exciting, especially if you’ve been wanting to find the perfect puppy for a while. This is a huge milestone for you and your new dog, and you’ll want to make sure everything’s in place before they come home. It’s important not only to gather all of the supplies you need but also to remember to make your home feel as comfortable for your new fur baby as possible.

Before your puppy’s homecoming, here are a few things to do to make sure this transition goes as smoothly as possible.

Pyramid

Assign Responsibilities

Unless you’re going to be the sole caretaker for this pup, assigning responsibilities to trustworthy family members establishes who is doing what early on. Different things to talk about before you get a puppy include:

  • Who’s taking him or her on multiple walks every day?
  • Does a specific person feed them fresh dog food in the morning and night?
  • Can someone play with him or her in the afternoon during the week and can someone else take them to the dog park on the weekend?
  • Where does the new puppy sleep?

If you plan on taking your puppy to get training, try hard to get everyone on the same page about commands, treats, and good habits.

Meal Plan

Ask the current caretaker for your puppy which foods your pupis currently being fed. Puppies’ stomachs can be more sensitive than when they’re full grown. Choose a sensitive stomach dog food to useas a topper on puppy kibble as a gentle way to encourage them to eat up so they get all the nutrition they need to grow big and strong. (Or, for smaller breeds, louder and more hyper.)

Don’t forget to put out a water bowl for your puppy that they can access at all times. If your furry friend tends to eat everything in front of them no matter what, specific meal times might work better.

Find a Veterinarian 

Choosing a vet clinic before you pick up your pup not only gives you peace of mind but also makes it easy to set up your first appointment soon after your puppy’s homecoming. Check online reviews and ask for pet owners’ recommendations for top-notch veterinarians in your area.

Questions to ask your vet during your first appointment can include:

  • What should I be feeding my puppy and how often?
  • When can I introduce him or her to more social situations with other dogs?
  • Is there anything about this breed that I should look out for?
  • How many shots does he or she need over the next few months?

Gather paperwork from the breeder or shelter and bring it to your vet appointment. Things they’re looking for include current shots, age, breed, and previous health issues.

Puppy Proof

The easiest way to keep your pup out of trouble is to remove any chewable items or block off areas he or she shouldn’t go into. Tape electrical cords to furniture or baseboards, put shoes away in the closet, gate off the stairs, and put people food out of reach of their curious snouts.

Choose a Potty Spot

This is super important! If you live in an apartment, you’re probably going to need designated paper areas for your new furry addition. Or, if you have a backyard, anywhere with grass might be okay for number ones but not number twos. Decide ahead of time to make house training easier once your puppy arrives.

Confusing a young pup with directions is the best way to make sure you have frequent indoor accidents. Stay on top of taking him or her out every hour for the first few days and reward them for going potty outside.
