Apakah Anak Anjing Anda Siap Makan Makanan Anjing Dewasa?

Kapan, Mengapa, dan Cara Mulai Memberi Anak Anjing Anda Makanan Anjing Dewasa

Saat anak anjing Anda tumbuh menjadi anjing dewasa, ia membutuhkan nutrisi yang menjaga tubuhnya sekuat cinta Anda, yaitu makanan anjing dewasa premium berkualitas tinggi seperti IAMS™ ​​ProActive Health™ Adult MiniChunks

 

Manfaat Memberi Makanan Premium

Mengapa perlu mengubah anak anjing Anda yang sudah dewasa ke makanan anjing dewasa premium? Karena kualitas diperhitungkan. Melanjutkan nutrisi terbaik untuk anak anjing sangat penting sampai  anjing dewasa. Menurunkan kualitas makanan ke merek yang lebih rendah pada tahap kehidupan  ini dapat mengganggu sistem pencernaannya, dan tidak akan memberikan tingkat nutrisi terbaik yang sama seperti saat dia dibesarkan.

Bayangkanlah seorang bayi. Ketika tiba saatnya untuk mulai memberinya makanan padat, Anda membayangkan memberi makan anak Anda makanan terbaik yang dapat Anda beli. Hal yang sama juga berlaku untuk anak anjing Anda yang sudah dewasa. Dia membutuhkan makanan terbaik yang sesuai dengan usianya untuk membantu menjaga kesehatannya secara keseluruhan.

Makanan premium, seperti IAMS, dirancang secara khusus untuk memberi anjing Anda makanan yang memiliki:

• Bahan-bahan berkualitas tinggi

• Makanan  yang sangat mudah dicerna 

• Kadar protein, lemak, serat, karbohidrat, vitamin, dan mineral yang seimbang dan optimal

• Makanan padat nutrisi yang sesuai untuk tahap kehidupannya

• Resep yang konsisten dengan bahan alami berkualitas tinggi dan tidak diubah walaupun biaya produksi meningkat.

• Keseimbangan asam lemak khusus untuk membantu menjaga kesehatan kulit dan bulu

• Kelezatan dan rasa sangat enak, berdasarkan uji coba makan

• Memenuhi bahkan melampaui standar Association of American Feed Control Official

• Jaminan produk

 

Hasil Makan Makanan Premium

Apa hasil yang dicapai ? Anjing yang bahagia dan sehat. Dengan makanan anjing premium, Anda dapat melihat indikator utama yang memberi  anjing Anda hidup yang panjang umur  dan sehat:

• bentuk  otot yang sangat baik

• Bulu mengkilap dan indah

• Kulit dan tulang sehat

• Gigi bersih

• Mata jernih dan cerah

• Kotoran kecil dan padat 

Dengan pengalaman lebih dari 60 tahun dalam penelitian nutrisi anjing, makanan premium IAMS membantu menjaga kesehatan anjing Anda dan memberi nutrisi yang dibutuhkan untuk panjang umur. Merek standar mungkin tidak memberikan manfaat ini atau tidak sama dengan  keistimewaan yang ada di setiap kantong makanan anjing IAMS.

 

Waktu untuk Peralihan

Transisi anak anjing Anda ke makanan dewasa harus dimulai saat ia mendekati puncak kedewasaan. Jenis ras juga akan membantu menentukan waktu harus beralih. Anjing ras kecil cenderung matang secara fisik lebih cepat dari anjing ras besar. Ikuti panduan ini untuk membantu Anda memutuskan kapan harus mengganti makanan:

• Anjing ras kecil yang beratnya kurang lebih 9 kg pada saat dewasa biasanya siap makan makanan dewasa pada usia 9 bulan sampai 12 bulan.

• Anjing ras sedang yang beratnya antara 9 kg sampai 22,5 kg saat dewasa biasanya siap makan makanan dewasa pada usia 12 bulan hingga 14 bulan.

• Anjing ras besar dan ras sangat besar, yang beratnya lebih 22,5 kg saat dewasa, mungkin belum siap untuk beralih ke makanan dewasa sampai mereka berusia 12 bulan hingga 24 bulan.

 

Melakukan Transisi

Untuk menghindari gangguan pada saluran usus anjing Anda atau menyebabkan diare, buatlah peralihan dari makanan anak anjing ke makanan orang dewasa selama empat hari dengan mencampurkan kedua makanan tersebut ke dalam mangkuk anjing Anda.

• Hari Pertama: Isi mangkuk anjing Anda dengan 75% makanan anak anjing dan 25% makanan anjing dewasa.

• Hari Kedua: Campurkan makanan anjing dewasa dan makanan anak anjing dengan perbandingan 50/50.

• Hari Ketiga: Beri makan anjing Anda campuran yang terdiri dari 75% makanan anjing  dewasa dan 25% makanan anak anjing.

• Hari Keempat: Beralih ke makanan anjing dewasa 100%.

 

Berapa banyak  makanan yang harus Anda berikan kepada anjing Anda? Periksa rekomendasi pemberian makan harian yang diberikan oleh produsen makanan hewan peliharaan dan baca labelnya. Dan Carey, DVM dan Direktur Komunikasi Teknis di IAMS, menyarankan untuk menggunakan rekomendasi tersebut, lalu menimbang anjing Anda setiap minggu. Jika dia bertambah atau turun berat badan (seharusnya tidak) tambah atau kurangi sedikit porsi  hariannya, dan timbang lagi di minggu berikutnya.

Jika Anda memiliki kekhawatiran khusus mengenai berat badan anjing Anda, bicarakan dengan Dokter Hewan Anda. Dia dapat menilai kebutuhan anjing Anda dan memberi Anda rekomendasi makanan.

    What Do Dogs Eat? Tips On Feeding Your Dog

     

    Feeding your dog the right nutrients and a complete, balanced diet doesn’t have to be a head-scratcher. Find out what can a dog eat, how much food to feed your dog, how many times to feed a dog, how to handle treats and supplements, and much more.

     

    1. How Do I Decide What To Feed My Dog? 

    When deciding which dog food is right for your pet, consider these three factors: 

    • Your dog’s life stage (Whether your dog is a puppy, an adult, or a senior)
    • Lifestyle (How active your dog is)
    • Condition (Overall health and bodyweight of your dog)  

     

    1. How Many Times Should I Feed My Dog? 

    Puppies should be fed three times a day from weaning (3 to 6 weeks) to 4 months of age. After 4 months, they should be fed twice a day. Most dogs should continue to be fed twice a day throughout their life, although some pets do well with one feeding.

     

    1. How Much Food Should I Feed My Dog? 

    The amount to feed your dog depends on its age, size, and activity level. Feeding guidelines, which list the daily-recommended portion, are included on all IAMS™ packages. Start feeding your dog with this amount and adjust according to its needs. Remember to divide the portion accordingly if you feed more than once a day.

     

    1. How Much Should I Feed My Puppy? 

    The amount you need to feed your puppy depends on 3 main factors — breed, weight, and age. However, you can look at this general guideline that we recommend for puppies:

    1. When Should I Switch My Puppy To An Adult Dog Food Diet? 

    You should not change your puppy’s food to adult abruptly. Giving your pet time to acclimatize to the new taste of adult food is very important. Also, if you suddenly switch your pup’s food, it can cause digestive problems. Go through this schedule that will help you understand how much to feed your dog and transition your dog’s diet from puppy food to adult food:

    •  Day 1 – Add 75% puppy food and mix 25% adult food on your dog’s plate. 
    •  Day 2 – Add both foods in equal quantities i.e. 50% puppy food and 50% adult food.
    •  Day 3 – Increase the quantity of adult food to 75% and bring down the quantity of puppy food to 25%.
    •  Day 4 – Fully transition to adult dog food.  

     

    Here is the weight and age-wise breakdown on when to transition your puppy’s diet to adult food 

    Weight Range

    Age to Begin Transition

    Small breeds that weigh < 20 lbs 

    9 and 12 months of age

    Medium breeds that weigh between 20 and 50 lbs

    12 to 14months of age

    Large breeds that weigh more than 50 lbs

    12 to 24 months of age

     

    1. When Should I Switch My Dog To Senior Food? 

    While transitioning from adult dog food to senior dog food, it is important to factor in your dog’s weight. Take a look at this weight table to know when to transition your dog’s food from adult to senior – 

    Weight Range

    Age to Begin Transition

    More than 90 lbs

    5 years

    51 to 90 lbs

    6 years

    21 to 50 lbs

    7 years

    Up to 20 lbs

    7 years

     

      

    1. What Is The Best Way To Introduce A New Diet To My Dog? 

    When changing your dog’s food diet, it’s important to slowly introduce new food. Start by offering your dog’s daily portion in a ratio of 25% new food to 75% current food. During the next three days, gradually increase the amount of new food and decrease the amount of the old food.

     

    1. What Food Can A Dog Eat If It Is Overweight? 

    If your dog has gained unhealthy weight, make sure to cut down on fats along with increasing regular exercise. We recommend IAMS Adult Healthy Weight Dry Dog Food, which is low on fats and offers a nutritious blend of fibers and natural prebiotics that support healthy digestion and L-carnitine for a healthy metabolism. How much food to feed your dog if they’re overweight is another major concern. You need to make sure you do not decrease the quantity of the food your dog eats as it will prove detrimental to its health — your dog needs its daily intake of proteins and required fatty acids.

     

    1. What Should I Feed My Pregnant Or Nursing Dog? 

    It’s important to understand that your dog’s nutritional needs change during pregnancy and ensure you feed her nutrition-rich food. For pregnant dogs, we recommend IAMS™ Puppy food as it’s full of proteins that can help your pregnant dog during the gestation period and also improve the quality of milk to nourish her puppies post-delivery. 

     

    1. Is It Necessary To Feed Both Wet And Dry Food? 

    Wet food is an excellent treat that can be fed alone or mixed with dry food. Although IAMS wet dog foods are nutritionally complete and balanced, it is not necessary to offer wet food at every feeding. Our dry foods are formulated with high-quality protein sources such as chicken, lamb, or fish, and contain all the essential nutrients pets need. The crunchy texture of dry food also promotes healthy teeth and gums and aids in overall good oral hygiene. In addition, some of our dry dog foods contain a dental enhancement to help block tartar buildup on teeth during and after meals.




       
     

    1. Will My Dog Be Bored Eating The Same Food All The Time? 

    No. Boredom with food is a human trait. Dogs are creatures of habit and usually are happy with just one food. Dogs generally eat to meet their energy or nutritional needs. They have very short digestive systems, and if their diet is abruptly or constantly changed, digestive disturbances can occur. Also, constant changes can make a pet a finicky eater.

     

    1. Is It All Right To Moisten Dry Food? 

    Adding water will not change the nutritional value of dry pet food. However, once moisture is added, the food should be eaten relatively soon — and any uneaten portion should be discarded to avoid spoilage. We recommend feeding your dog dry food from IAMS because it is beneficial to your dog’s dental health.

     

    1. Will It Hurt My Dog If They Eat My Cat’s Food? 

    Cats and dogs have different nutritional requirements and should not eat each other’s food. For example, cats require a much higher level of taurine in their diet. An occasional venture into each other’s bowls will not be harmful, but it is not recommended to feed your dog cat food regularly.

     

    1. How Many Biscuits Can I Feed My Dog Each Day? 

    We recommend feeding your dog approximately two to four small biscuits per cup of food. Keep in mind that when you add biscuits to your dog’s daily diet, this increases its daily calorie intake, so you should reduce the amount of food you feed. Check the calorie content of the biscuit since biscuits vary in size and formulation.

     

    1. Can I Supplement Your Dog Foods With Vitamins, Minerals, Oils, Etc.? 

    Our foods are nutritionally complete and balanced. Adding vitamins, minerals or oils can offset the balance the food provides. One of the benefits of feeding your dog a high-quality product is that it has been carefully balanced in proper ratios to provide optimal nutrition — nothing needs to be added.

     

    1. Why Does My Dog Need To Eat Protein? 

    Protein is one of the essential elements that should be a part of your dog’s diet. Including protein in your dog’s diet will strengthen its muscles, ligaments, and cartilages. A protein-rich food also brings about a healthy shine to your dog’s coat! 

     

    1. Why Should One Maintain A Feeding Schedule For Dogs? 

    It is important to maintain a feeding schedule for dogs so that they are conditioned to expect food at that time and also avoid irregular snacking in between. 

     

    1. What Are Things Not To Feed A Dog?  

    You should never feed your dog home-baked goods, candy, gum, chocolate, limes, onion, and grapes. They can harm your dog’s digestive tract and cause infections as well. 

     

    1. Why Should You Feed Iams Dog Food Over Homecooked Food?  

    IAMS dog food is full of key nutrients that your dog needs for its healthy growth. The basic ingredients in our food include chicken, fish oil, beet pulp, wholesome grains, and natural prebiotics.
