Do you want your dog to be the best it can be? Would you like to:
- Cure its allergies or fussiness?
- Improve or cure its diabetes, arthritis or digestive problems?
- Avoid the stress and expense of constant vet visits?
Well you can and it’s as easy as improving its diet!
There’s no reason why you can’t cook homemade food for your dog. Cooking for your dog is no more complicated than cooking for yourself and the rest of your family, but there are a number of important considerations.
1. Feed a balanced diet
Balance means getting protein, fats and carbohydrates into your dog’s diet and in the right proportions. You do not need to achieve balance in every single meal, but you do need to achieve balance over time.
2. Add plenty of variety
Your dog needs variety in its diet. Different foods contain different nutrients in different quantities. Feed a wide variety of ingredients and your dog cannot fail to get a wide variety of nutrients. Simple!
3. Don’t feed too much
Feed your dog just the right about of food to fuel its body and maintain a healthy weight. Few things are more guaranteed to shorten your dog’s life than allowing it to become overweight!
4. Supplement with calcium
Calcium is an essential mineral for your dog. It helps build and maintain strong teeth and bones, helps blood clot and improves nerve and muscle function. If you home cook for your dog, you must supplement with calcium in one form or another.
5. Splash with fish oil
Fish body oil (salmon oil) can:
- Help cure fussiness
- Improve skin and coat condition
- Relieve allergies, joint pain and arthritis
- Strengthen the immune system
- Improve heart condition
- Help fight cancer
6. Boost with superfoods
Add Dog Chef Daily supplement powder to every meal to boost the immune system and improve gut health.
7. Invest in a feeding guide
The simple rules above will allow you to greatly improve your dog’s diet.

Remember, feeding your dog is an investment. The better you invest, the better and healthier your dog and the longer he or she will be part of your life!
