Dog nutrition must be complete and balanced, but it’s also important to switch dog food brands now and then. This might sound like a trivial point and merely a tactic to appease our human desire for food variety. However, there’s more to dog nutrition and switching that you should know.
When your dog receives the same dog food month after month, year after year, you are exposing him or her to any problems that might exist with that particular brand. Had pet owners switched their dog food brands prior to the recent dog food recalls, they could have avoided the dangers posed.
For instance, giving your dog one brand for a few weeks or months means he will be constantly exposed to those dangers. By switching, the concentration is diluted, thereby preventing a build-up of exposure which can result in an eventual weakening of your dog’s ability to ward off the danger.
