To stay healthy, your dog needs to be fed a complete and balanced food created for the life-stage and life-style of the dog so that it contains the right balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Each nutrient must be in balance with the energy content of the diet and with each of the other nutrients.
The right number of calories depends on your dog’s size, their breed and the amount of exercise they get. Life stage can make a big difference too: puppies, adult dogs, senior dogs, pregnant and lactating bitches all need different amounts of energy.
Home prepared or packaged?
Creating a balanced diet for your dog at home takes a lot of time, effort and understanding. It’s hard to get it right – and it could affect your dog’s health.
Decades of science and expertise have gone into the different brands of packaged dog foods now available in the shops. Today’s Pedigree range is the result of over 50 years of research.
This means you’ll get guaranteed, consistent quality, whether the food is complete or complementary, dry or wet. Quite simply, feeding a complete diet like Pedigree is the easiest way to make sure your dog gets the nutrition they need.
