Food Types, Treats & Supplements
There are a number of pet food options readily available to pet parents including fresh, kibble and raw. What are these different types and which ones are right for your pet's health and your life.
A raw dog food diet (as opposed to a cooked dog food diet) is made of ingredients that are uncooked. Typically they are high-meat diets, but this may include toxin-housing organ meats, or leftover parts of the carcass after the rest of the cuts of meat have been removed.
If your dog is still having loose stools after the first week on NomNomNow, but otherwise acting fine, you may consider adding a probiotic to your dog's diet. Probiotics are strains of live bacteria that assist in normal digestive function and help the overall immune system within the gastrointestinal tract.
When first switching to a fresh dog food, most owners will notice that their dog is more excited about eating. This can translate into an increase in energy level throughout the day. Such diets tend to be lower in fiber, and you'll see that a lot of nutrients are actually digested and utilized, resulting in smaller stools.
