Diet & Nutrition
A nutritious, balanced diet is essential to keeping your dog healthy. Learn what you should be feeding your dog at every stage of its life, http://pets.webmd.com/dogs/guide/diet-nutrition.
Dogs love treats and people love giving their dogs treats. It's a great way to bond with your pet but can also be cause for unwanted additional calories. With this in mind, opt for treats that are lower in fat, sugar and preservatives.
Vegetables and fruits make for healthy alternatives - try a baby carrot, a green bean or some broccoli; banana slices, berries, watermelon or apple slices (with no seeds). Avoid grapes, raisins, onions and chocolate. These can be toxic to dogs.
