 Different Types of Dog Food.
The food provided to domesticated dogs is now divided into three sections:
Dried Food:
 


dogs Dried Food


This food contains important nutrients from proteins, vitamins, salts, fat, dried meats, carbohydrates, and minerals of all kinds in thoughtful and thoroughly mixed proportions, in proportion to dog bodies in the form of small balls or small bones. This food is very useful for dogs' health, feeding them and strengthening their bones, teeth, and jaw bones without making them overweight, and helps to constantly brush their teeth. But one of the disadvantages of this food is its high price because it contains preservatives and industrial flavors that make it last longer with a delicious taste for dogs, which can lead to dogs developing cancers, so diversification in the quality of food is required so that the dog's health is not compromised in the future.
packaged food.

This food consists of a mixture of meat, carbohydrates, rice, vitamins, salts, and industrial flavors and is canned. With the health benefits of dogs and easy to serve, it doesn't require much effort to prepare. But in contrast, it is a long-term detriment since it also contains flavors and preservatives, as well as its high cost per month, and if the dog used to eat it, it may refuse any other type of food.
Home-prepared food.
 

Home-prepared food for dog
Homemade food is characterized by its high level of cleanliness as well as its pricing. It is either a residue of eggs, meat, etc., or it is made of materials that are present and abundant within the home. The dog may not initially accept home food, but with the dog being reintroduced more than once, it will get used to it and become a delicacy for it, and preparing food such as eggs or meat as a special meal for the dog will increase the dog's love and attachment to household members because he'll appreciate their tiredness in preparing his own meals.
Food that is not recommended to be fed to dogs.
Dogs have their own food, and their diet is as special as other living organisms, and because of the connection between human life and dog life, humans may introduce certain foods to dogs' diets, causing them some disruption, such as unwanted foods that are not recommended to be fed to dogs.
Fatty Foods.
Humans may believe that the dog enjoys all types of meat, but feeding it fat causes it to accumulate abnormally, causing obesity, lethargicness, difficulty moving, and even pancreatitis.
Broken bones.
Dogs are known to love bones greatly, but these bones may be harmful to dogs and cause them to become sick if they are broken or have sharp edges. When a dog swallows them, they may penetrate into an organ, causing holes in the stomach, intestines, gum wounds, or the roof of the mouth.
Chocolate.
Chocolate contains substances that stimulate heart action. Some chocolate fines may cause the dog's  death. 

Dough.
Eating unbaked dough leads to bloating and abdominal pain, and loss of concentration in dogs.
Alcohol

 causes many health problems for dogs, so it is recommended to avoid serving it to them to dogs.
Coffee
Caffeine in coffee and soft drinks causes muscle convulsions in dogs and tremors in the body.
They cause muscle weakness and abdominal pain due to poor digestion, loss of concentration, and tremors.
Some fruits
Some types of fruits cause very harmful effects on dogs, such as tomatoes, grapes or raisins, onions, and garlic. 

Dog feeding tips
 

Dog feeding tips
Dog breeders should follow specific advice to maintain the dog's health. If there are any imbalances that may cause the dog's atrophy and inability to carry out domestic duties, it may lead to the dog's illness or death, so it is recommended to follow specific advice to protect him, including what comes.

  • Follow the dog's steady food times and do not change them constantly.
  • Give the dog enough waste to drink, not leave it without water, especially in the summer.
  • Giving a meal made up of rice and vegetables weekly makes the dog supply the necessary elements of vitamins and protein. Young dogs must be treated in particular as they are provided with food continuously so that their blood sugar level does not drop.
  • If the dog is constantly diarrhoeic or vomiting, the vet must be reviewed quickly.
  • Food is provided to the dog daily depending on the dog's weight; dogs weighing 9 kg or less need 170 g of meat, 56 g of beans, and dogs weighing more than 9 kg need 0.5 kg of meat and 113 g of beans per day.

How often do dogs have to be fed a day?
It is best for dogs to have a schedule of eating, and it is worth mentioning that feeding an adult dog at regular times provides safety, predictability of routine, meals becoming an essential event of the day, and when a dog gets used to eating at the same times every day, its body becomes ready to expect food at those times. Because dogs have a simple infectious structure, once the stomach is full of food, waste will empty after 8 to 10 hours when food moves to the small intestine, and the empty stomach begins to send signals to the brain to stimulate a hunger response, which is why delivering at least two meals a day is best for the dog.
Which is the best canned or dry food for dogs?
Canned foods are suitable and good for dogs. They are well ground and typically contain more meat protein than dry food. Canned dog foods do not contain artificial preservatives. Fats and oils inside cans are not easily spoiled, and tins do not contain flavors or artificial colors. But it should be noted that these canned foods are often more expensive than dry food.
