When you purchase a larger breed of dog it is important that you choose a good dog collar. Choose one that fits snugly around the neck, the correct fit will allow you to place two fingers under the collar.
Dog nutrition is an important factor at every stage of a dog’s life, and ill fitting dog collars can restrict the chewing and digesting of food, in some cases causing dog bloating.
Dog food that consists of cheaper cuts of meat with a high level of grains and carbohydrates in a pet diet can cause a level of discomfort that could lead to bloating, a condition that can be serious if it is not treated immediately.
A large male dog over the age of 7 is prone to the risk factor of canine bloat; other areas that could help to avoid this condition are listed below:
• A dog that has been exercised and then allowed to eat his food, or if he has a tendency to gulp down large amounts of water could give a dog stomach cramps.
• The same effect could occur if a dog has eaten immediately before his daily exercise.
A dog fed on high quality balanced dog food with the only the best meats and supporting ingredients and allowed to eat his food too quickly would still cause him or her to have an upset his stomach.
Ideally a dog should be fed two portions of food on a daily basis rather than one large meal will help the digestive tract to cope well.
A pet diet with the correct portions of premium dog food, aimed at keeping dog nutrition at its highest level will help to keep a dog in good health.
