Just like many people, some dogs have specific dietary needs to accommodate issues such as food allergies or a need for weight management. Have a vet assess each dog’s dietary needs to provide a proper diet.
The following are standards for providing nutritious food and water:
- Dogs should have access to fresh, clean water at all times and it should be changed at least daily.
- Dogs should have access to nutritious food at an amount appropriate for the dog’s age, weight and health. Talk to the vet to determine the best food for the dog and how much food to give.
- Throw out uneaten food after a maximum of 24 hours.
- Store food to protect it from spoiling as well as from insects and rodents.
