The Dog

Like its ancestor, the wolf, the dog is a carnivore, or rather, a prey catcher. Neither dogs nor wolves only eat meat!

Depending on the habitat and season, in addition to larger grazing animals, on the menu there are worms, insects, fish, mice, small rodents, and even wild fruit, melons and grass. The prey is eaten almost entirely, except for remains which are indigestible or hard to digest, and provide the animal not only with protein and fat, but also other vital nutrients such as:

  • calcium from the bones
  • sodium from the blood
  • fat-soluble vitamins from organs (especially the liver and kidneys),
  • water-soluble vitamins from the intestine and intestinal contents
  • essential fatty acids from the body fat,
  • fibres (from the digestive tract of the prey)

which are essential for intestinal health and function.

Living with humans, dogs have become more and more domesticated. Over thousands of years, the dog has not only adapted to the available food, but is also now reliant on humans providing the food. This means that we have an increased responsibility to provide our faithful companions with an appropriate diet. The risks of malnutrition are increasing as more people and dogs live together closely and the dog is at risk of being humanized. By choosing a suitable, high-quality and nutritious complete feed, you can minimise the risk of malnutrition and prevent lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, being overweight and joint problems.

Only appropriate nutrition can optimally support the health and performance of a dog. The owner should therefore be aware of the nutritional requirements of different breeds, as well as the tolerance and digestibility of the feed
