Why does your dog need proper nutrition? We explain from a scientific point of view what a diet is, what it is made of and how it affects your puppy’s body.
A diet is a dog’s diet, which includes a set of essential nutrients. Their balanced combination provides the body needs of the dog in the necessary nutrients and vitamins.
In order for a diet to be considered complete, it must contain proteins, fats, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins. The correct combination of all these components ensures a full life of the dog.
Energy, without which no living organism can exist, is produced in the process of food digestion. Therefore, each product has its own energy value, which is associated with its digestibility. So, for proteins it is about 80%, for fats – about 90% and for carbohydrates – about 85%.
