What Foods Are Good For Dogs?

good foods for dogs

As dog owners, we want to provide our dogs with the best possible nutrition to help them thrive and live long, healthy lives. In this article, we'll explore some of the best food picks for your canine companion.

There are lots of human foods that are beneficial for dogs, but bear in mind that they should still comprise no more than 10% of their diet. Feeding extra, unbalanced food instead of a balanced one can reduce the benefits of a complete and balanced diet, especially for large breed dogs. Some dogs require specific mineral levels in their diet for optimal growth and development, so it's important not to go overboard.

Here are some of our top recommended dog foods:

For great skin and joint support: pick a food that is high in omega fatty acids, such as:

  • Canned sardines in springwater

  • Canned tuna in springwater

  • Flaxseed - these also contains beneficial fibre

  • Chia seeds

  • Cooked mussels

For sensitive digestion - pick a food that is high in beneficial fibre and easy to digest such as:

  • Boiled/steamed pumpkin

  • Boiled/steamed sweet potato

  • Brown rice

  • Psyllium husk

  • Steamed broccoli

For dogs that need to lose weight - pick a food that is lower in calories, but still provides your dog with the necessary nutrients to maintain good health. Bonus points if they are fun to eat too:

  • Carrots soaked in beef stock then frozen

  • Scattered blueberries, or in a snuffle mat/food puzzle toy

  • Cottage cheese spread onto a lick mat and frozen

  • Hard boiled egg

  • Boiled or steamed turkey breast
