Rotational Diet

02 Mar

A rotational diet for your dog is based on the idea that more variety will provide better overall health for your pet. Unlike a conventional feeding plan where the same food is served at each meal, diet rotation involves varying a dog’s menu on a daily, weekly, or other periodic basis.

You don’t eat the same thing day in and day out, so why should your dog? By varying the proteins, veggies and fruits your dog eats, he will receive a more diverse and complete micro-nutrient intake from his food.

There are several benefits to a rotational diet for your pet, including a variety of new flavors and textures, which makes your dog less finicky, and a decrease in the risk of allergies by regularly switching protein sources. A rotation diet reduces the risk of intolerances because any one specific protein is not being overfed so the body does not become sensitive.

There’s really no right or wrong way to implement a rotational diet. Just offer various proteins (e.g. beef, chicken, and salmon) and forms (raw, dry, cans and fresh) to your pet. All foods can be rotated daily, weekly or monthly, based on what’s most convenient for you. It’s all about giving your pet something different, instead of the same old thing. It’s easy to start. Just buy a few different foods (some raw, some canned, some dry, with different ingredients) and begin rotating. You can even add in fruits and veggies, like bananas and carrots.Your pooch will be excited about eating again!
