Good advice is so necessary. It is all the more important if you are a pet parent. The dog is at your mercy and it is left up to you to ensure that its health, happiness and welfare are in good nick. Living in an urban environment, populated with thousands of men and women just like, the poor little fellow will never be able to fend for itself.
And a young, little cocker spaniel cannot trundle off to the mall to buy his own specialized cocker spaniel dog food. Apart from the fact that he does not have a regular bank account and never gets paid for the little chores he does around the house for you, whether you are at home or not, he is still a dog and will always eat what is in front of him. He can be fussy at times, but he will always be hungry. So, by all means, do feed him with the wrong food, feed him too much, and go help yourself to more lofty vet’s bills.
This can be avoided, of course, if you take good care of your dog. We can help too if you are feeling a little lost right now. Here are a few tips to help you with your dog’s nutritional requirements and the choices you need to make in the near term. These are tips to help you prevent health problems common to your dog breed. Unfortunately, these tips still entail regular encounters with the vet. Some expense has to be provided for and it is necessary in this case.
In this case, take your little one for an annual eye exam to help avoid potential diseases before they arise. Addressing nutritional requirements is by the way and makes an important contribution in this regard. For this next exercise, you do not need a trip to the vet. You can check your own dog’s coat and skin for signals of infections, growths and rashes. And do clean out your little dog’s ears at least once a week.
While you are about your good hygiene business, do check for infections to the ears as well. Addressing your dog’s nutritional requirements is a lot more practical than you may have previously imagined. Give the dog two, not one, meals per day, one in the morning, and one more in the evening. Does this not make sense to you? If you are dealing with a young pup it should make even more sense to know that this little one does not need much food in its first months.
As little as just two hundred and ten calories per day is all that is necessary for starters. As each new month arrives, the volume of food can be doubled. These little chaps, they do grow quite quickly. And the more (ideally) active the spaniel is, the more food it is allowed to chow.
