Missing Required Nutrients?
Whether to use a complete food, or whether to go with home-made or other forms of feeding... if you are new to the breed or dogs in general, get advice from your breeder or vet. Also remember the problems which there have been recently with pet foods.
Check out what advice is available at the collection of links which you will find in our left-hand margin. You'll find suppliers, herbal remedies/health foods, and make-it-yourself advice at Skin Solutions, together with training advice - all within these links.
I am also copying below the post from 'Secrets of Dog Training' which deals with problems which are caused by lack of required nutrients...
"Has your pet taken to stealing food, eating unmentionables, or eating grass and other vegetation or berries when out?
The answer could be that their diet is lacking in an essential nutrient. This is even possible for dogs on 'complete' dry food diets - and the problem will build up over the years.
A good addition, which you can obtain from a pet shop or our on-line suppliers, will be seaweed powder or granules - it contains many special nutrients and minerals and can appear to be a miracle cure!"
