Dog food: everything your dog needs
Finding the right dog food is important for both you and your dog. There is a large selection of dog food on the market and it may take some time before you find the right one. Like us humans, dogs also highly evolved taste buds and therefore also have preferences when it comes to food. Our dear dogs must therefore have food that both strengthens them and tastes good. After all, they are an important part of the family. At Biltema we have food to meet your dog’s needs. We will help you find the right food for your dog.
Dog food - what should I choose?
There are countless varieties of dog food out there and it can be hard to find the right one for your dog. It’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the ingredients list and learn about what is essential for your dog and what is not. Here at Biltema we recommend that you find out which ingredients should be used in good dog food. We believe that good dog food should contain a pure source of protein, a good source of fat and be rich in vitamins.
A suitable dog food will depend on your dog’s breed, size, and age (puppy or adult). If you are a new dog owner, you will likely change food more often in the first years of your dog’s life. This is because your dog develops quickly and builds muscle, and will move around a lot. Biltema recommends dry dog food for puppies as well as adult dogs. Unlike wet food, dry food strengthens your dog’s teeth. There is also a significant difference in the energy content of the two foods. Dry food contains far less water than wet food and therefore more energy. Dry food also has a longer shelf life.
We recommend Biltema’s own-brand dry food, which is produced in Europe. Our dog food contains a balanced mix of protein, fat, fibre and vitamins. Dog food containing meat is a good source of protein, which your dog needs. Our dog food contains lean chicken meat as well as liver, which provides the necessary protein. Like us humans, dogs also need a good source of fat. Biltema’s dog food uses salmon oil, which contains fat and omega 3. With our dog food, you can be sure that your dog will get the right vitamins for their bones and inner balance.
If you have a very active dog, such as a Labrador, we recommend finding dog food that has a higher-than-normal protein content. In addition, it’s also important for active dogs that you have treats to give them on long walks or during training.
Treats for play and training
At Biltema we have a wide range of treats and snacks. Treats work well as a supplement to dog food and especially as a reward after activity.
Of course, it is important that you keep your dog active. There are countless ways to do so, such as agility training, running, swimming and play. We recommend giving your dog a specific treat after each activity so that your dog always knows when they have done well. Our soft treats are especially good for this.
You need to make sure that your dog’s muscles are maintained and strengthened throughout their life. This can be achieved through regular exercise. In addition to muscle exercise, it is important to stimulate your dog’s brain for their overall health. Biltema recommends training games which stimulate all the senses. For example, you can play a search game with your dog. By hiding treats and having your dog search for them, you stimulate your dog’s brain and senses. A search game is easy to play and can be done while out walking or at home.
At Biltema we have dog food and treats for your dog. We are always ready with a helping hand in your nearest store.
