The perfect fiber for dogs can be found at the grocery store. Fiber for people and dogs are NOT the same. And that's the topic of discussion in today's Dog Talk Tuesday.
We all know that fiber is important to keep things moving and protect against disease right?
The right fiber will enhance his diet, prevent constipation and keep the vet from expressing anal glands because there will be no impaction.
How easy is it? Have a listen.
If your dog is on a commercial diet, there probably isn't enough of the right kind of fiber. I have never heard of a dog on a raw diet having impacted anal glands have you?
Yet it's not uncommon for a dog eating kibble to need anal gland expressing. Not only does it smell when they get impacted but it's rather uncomfortable for a dog to be 'milked' of that natural scent all at one time. Yuck.
If your dog is a kibble eater, adding those wings will not only give him fiber but more protein, a bit of the right kind of fat and the minerals sorely needed for dog health.
Note: We are talking about RAW WINGS. Cooking kills much of the nutrition, all the enzymes and cooked bones can splinter. (Thanks Julie, for reminding me to clarify)
Whatever you use, don't do what that well intending woman did to help her dog. She has no idea she's adding something that will increase inflammation and may tip the scales in the favor of dog diabetes.
