Choosing Boxer Dog Food

diet 3 Comments »

One of the first things a person asks the breeder from whom he is purchasing his boxer puppy from concerns boxer dog food. A person always want to know what the breeder was feeding the puppies, and what the breeder thinks the person should purchase to feed the puppy at home. After all, there are so many types of puppy food and dog food out on the market these days, and there are even more that are sold only through veterinarians or on the internet. Some people even advocate making your own dog food. So, it’s only fitting that anyone purchasing a new boxer puppy would question the breeder about what to use as boxer dog food.

Actually, it is a good idea to ask the breeder about feeding the puppy. This is because whatever boxer dog food the breeder was using, and whatever feeding program he had in place (meaning the times he fed the puppies) should be kept in place, at least initially. Any abrupt changes in diet will cause stomach upset in a puppy. So, if a person does decide to switch to a different boxer dog food, he should do so in a gradual manner, slowly introducing the new boxer dog food in with the previous type of food, adding a little bit more of the new food at each feeding until the new food has completely replaced the previous food.

Choosing a Boxer Dog Food

There are many sources of information on boxer dog food, and on dog food in general. A person can ask his veterinarian for suggestions and he can do some researching online about which types of boxer dog food are best. However, there are so many conflicting opinions and so much different advice that it can be hard to make a decision. Here are some tips on how to choose a boxer dog food for your dog:

• Remember that dogs are carnivores/omnivores—that is their nature. So, it is important to feed your dog a diet rich in meat protein sources. A plant-based diet or grain-based diet will not be as easy on your dog’s digestive system. Even plant proteins are not as easy for dogs to digest. Therefore, you need to make sure that whatever boxer dog food you choose has a high degree of meat proteins.

You can do this by looking at the ingredients label on any boxer dog food. Check out the first five ingredients. These ingredients are the most plentiful in the dog food. At least two of these should be meat sources—chicken, beef or lamb. Not anything like chicken meal or beef by-products. Of these first five ingredients, few should be grains (unless they are whole grains like brown rice, for example).

• Boxer dog food with corn products—such as corn, corn meal, corn gluten meal, or corn syrup—or wheat products should be avoided…especially if these are within the first five ingredients.

• Fruits and vegetables are good to see in any boxer dog food.

The bottom line—read the label carefully, and if it sounds like something a person would eat, it is probably suitable for boxer dog food.
