Let's take a look at manufactured dog food and what you can expect with Healthy Home Cooking for the Maltese.
Vet Recommendation - Did you know that any manufactured dog food can legally have the label of "Recommended by Veterinarians" if only 1 vet recommends it? That is 1 vet out of millions.
Fillers - The main difference between high quality and low quality manufactured dog food is the amount of fillers. Fillers are empty, useless ingredients which "pump" up a dog's food to make it appear as if there is "more to it" and cause your Maltese to feel full...when in fact they are ingesting worthless elements which contain zero nutrients. It is akin to us eating cardboard.
These quickly pass right through your little Maltese's body and come out via the other end.
Behavioral Issues - The behavioral issues of a Maltese eating grass and/or eating feces can be directly connected to the dog's diet. As the Maltese is ingesting those fillers found in manufactured food, your dog will feel full, but his or her body will be yearning for nutrients that the fillers did not contain. Allergies - Allergies to what is found in dog food is one of the most widespread allergies that affect toy breed dogs such as the Maltese. This can cause upset stomachs, vomiting, diarrhea, and external symptoms such as dry skin and a dull coat. Many cases can be severe and by following the correct home cooking methods, you can make sure a Maltese receives the nutrients he needs, while at the same time filtering nasty by-products, chemicals and coloring that can cause allergies. Keeping Your Maltese White - Diet can play a significant key role in tear staining. Food with no additives, preservatives or food color in it greatly aids in maintaining white stain free faces. Many commercial dog foods contain beep pulp which can cause staining of the face and beard. Teething - Why watch your Maltese endure the teething phase, when you can make tasty homemade treats that will greatly help with discomfort.
Marketing Schemes - Puppy food, adult food, senior food, pregnancy food...When you home cook for your Maltese, you do not need to be concerned about the age of your dog. Home cooking recipes fit any Maltese of any age.
Raw Food Diets - Scientists have traced canines all the way back to 4 specific wolves - remarkable! Having originated from wild animals, our fluffy little friends still have the instinct to eat raw meat. For those who wish to see if their Maltese enjoys a raw food diet, you will have recipes for this as well.
Tummy Trouble Times - There will be times when your Maltese is feeling down, perhaps recuperating from a treatment or just having an "off day" and dealing with an upset tummy. For those times, read the recipes for "Upset Tummy Food". Trust - Your Maltese trusts you to feed him. Your dog watches you prepare his food, looking so cute, practically drooling while you get ready to place down that dish. He's loyal to you and trusts the food that you give to him. Do you want to feed your Maltese fillers? Or do you want to offer home cooked food and know that the only elements your dog is ingesting are healthy, nutritious and ingredients that your dog's body actually needs.
