The Scoop on Poop! How Your Dog’s Diet Affects Them.

I know…not the greatest of topics right! But this is an important one. Many of us have heard we are what we eat, or the term garbage in, garbage out. So, what does this have to do with your dog’s diet? Well, what food goes into your pet will eventually come out in the end. ๐Ÿ™‚ Not many of you know, but I used to work for a pet food store for a bit that focused on only the highest quality natural food, and I read excessively!

Your dog’s diet will affect their poop considerably. Other factors play a role such as illness, nerves, and the weather. You can tell a lot about the health of your pup by the poop produced.

When your dog is eating a diet high in fillers, your pet will show it. The excrement will be large in size and often runny and hard to pick up. You may notice when you give your pet leftovers from the table, he or she is really happy, but you aren’t exactly smiling on the next trip around the block. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย The outputs of a pet eating an unhealthy diet is just plain messy, stinky, and large.

Even treats such as rawhide bones can change your dog’s stool. Your dog’s diet consists of everything your pet eats from treats to mealtime. Monitor how treats affect your dog’s outputs to determine how healthy the snack really is for your pet.

If you choose to feed your dog a balanced diet that is high in quality, you will notice a particular difference in the poops. Cleanup may not be placed on the top of your things to-do list, but it will be much easier and more tolerable. When the dog’s diet is healthy and nutritious, you will have less mess in the yard or kennel. I.E. They will poop less!

Dog handlers with service animals are educated about the importance of a healthy diet and outputs during training. It is important, for example, that a guide dog not have an accident while working. The public would not be highly tolerant of trouble in a restaurant or grocery store. Take a tip from trainers and keep your dog’s diet healthy to avoid these messy situations.

Consult your veterinarian to decide what type of diet is best for your dog. Look for a dry dog food that lists actual meat as the first few ingredients. This will help to reduce the amount of fillers your pet will consume.

Feeding your pet on a schedule is important. When looking at your dog’s diet, do not simply focus on what you are feeding your pet, but also focus on when you feed your dog. If your dog’s diet includes consistent mealtimes, you will be better able to predict your dog’s potty schedule. This can play a major role in effective housebreaking technique.

Helping your pet eat right is the first step to maintaining a healthy diet for your dog. Your dog’s diet, when perfected, will keep things running smoothly. Minimize outputs and mess with nutritious, scheduled feeding. Beware of treats in your dog’s diet. Knowing what goes into your pet will reduce the garbage coming out.
