The Naturavetal Dog Nutrition Guide
In our dog nutrition guide you will find information and useful hints concerning the health and natural nutrition for your dog. From individual feed components to specific feeding tips and frequent feeding problems, we address everything that helps you with species-appropriate nutrition. We always keep in mind the nature of the animal. Their descent from the wolf plays a significant role in the choice of a suitable feeding concept. In the wild, our four-legged friend would eat its prey completely. This includes the fur, bones and offal. However, this meal would also include herbs, berries and roots from the forest. In addition to the essential main ingredient of meat, the species-appropriate and naturally healthy dog diet would therefore also include fruits, vegetables and oils. We share all the basics – including the popular feeding of raw/BARF – with you here in this guide!
Feed components - What is allowed and what is not?
Naturavetal stands for species-appropriate natural dog food, because only the best is good enough for your dog. The question to consider is, which ingredients are suitable and which have nothing to do with dog nutrition? There is always a conversation about “evil grain”. Not all grains are evil, in fact, wheat, rye or barley are good sources of energy and also contain vitamins and minerals. However, many dogs do not tolerate gluten and are allergic to foods containing cereals. Unscrupulous cereals are often the trigger for digestive problems. A crucial element of our dog nutrition guide is the education concerning toxic and deadly foods for dogs such as chocolate.
Make dog feeding appropriate and practical even when you are out and about. You can find out more about this in this guide.

Finding the right food in the right amount
In addition to the main food components, the amount of food fed also influences the health of the dog and is therefore a topic in our dog nutrition guide. The quantity of food to feed depends on age, breed and individual temperament. Sedentary seniors need less energy than agile young dogs (more on this in the Puppy Guide!). In addition, some dog breeds put on weight easily and should not be spoiled with too many treats. Last but not least, the energy requirement is also a key factor to take into account. A trained working dog, such as a police dog or a customs sniffer dog, will require a much more calorific meal than the small lap dog. You can find out more about this in our Dog Nutrition Guide.
Dog Nutrition Guide with helpful feeding tips and advice in case of problems
If your dog suddenly loses its appetite, suffers from diarrhea or constipation, it is important to act quickly. The advice in our Naturavetal guide to dog nutrition should not replace a visit to the vet. It provides useful information for many feeding questions. For example, if your dog will not eat, the owner would understandably be worried. Because unlike cats, which you can learn more about in our cat guide, most dogs are foodies and would not hesitate to gulp down the food offered to them. Health problems and diseases can spoil our four-legged friend’s appetite. But even healthy dogs sometimes refuse their meals. What should I do, and many more feeding tips are here in our guide to healthy, species-appropriate and natural dog nutrition!
