Jakarta, April 1, 2019 — Keeping animals nowadays is not just a hobby. Pets are part of the family and the quality of their life must be considered, the same as the owner. Including dogs, pets are increasingly popular.
Taking care of dogs require commitment. Experienced dog trainer, Mr. Aang from Chambaraya Dog Trainer in the Media gathering held by ProBalance explained, “Many people keep dogs without preparation”.
“The main requirement for raising a dog or any pet is a commitment. Because there are many inconsistencies people, in the middle of the time they stop giving the best for their pet dogs, “said Mr. Aang.
Commitment to maintain a dog is directed by financial preparation to prepare a clean and roomy kennel, a commitment to provide the best food, dog care routinely, and spare time to interact with dogs.
Dog food is the most important need for health, growth and development of pet dogs. Explained by drh. Elvinkan Ruth from Snips & Snaps Clinic, there are some considered aspects when raising a dog.
The first one is nutritional needs. Nutrition is important to support the health and growth of dogs. “The characteristics of a healthy dog are active and agile, good appetite, clean teeth, clean hair (fur) alias free of lice and fungus, and shiny. Besides that, it can be seen from its physiological status such as body temperature, pulse, breathing frequency, everything is normal, “explained drh. Elvinka.
Also, do not forget their normal posture, dog weight, and cleanliness from parts of the body that are not visible for the example; teeth and mouth, or ears. “Dirty ears can be a problem. Even in extreme conditions, there are dogs that experience behavioral changes such as feces eating (coprophagy). Usually due to stress or incomplete nutrition from food. So, this food greatly affects the growth and health of dogs, “explained drh. Elvinka.
Elvinka added, improvised food would not make a dog die, but the quality of life will be reduced. So, the dogs aren’t happy.
ProBalance, Dog Food with Complete Nutrition for Healthy and Active Dogs
In general, best dog food criteria are the same for all types of dogs. The main needs of dog food are protein, fat, carbohydrates, certain vitamins and minerals. Protein functions for muscle growth. Fats and carbohydrates are important for energy. Best dog food also contains vitamins and minerals. Water always has to be provided and it must be clean water.
All healthy food criteria for dogs with complete nutrition have been fulfil by ProBalance. ProBalance brand representative, Azis Hady Dwi Putra explained that ProBalance contains a single protein (chicken, beef and lamb variants) as much as 23% per portion, more than other similar products and fulfil the dog’s need for protein, which is around 20-25%. “To check whether animal food is made from more portion of meat or vice versa, just look at the ingredients in the package. When it comes to ingredients, the meat source is mentioned first, meaning that the composition is bigger, “Azis explained. In addition to meat protein, ProBalance contains omega 3 and 6 for healthy fur.
The calcium and phosphorus minerals in ProBalance are important for the growth of strong bone. “Dogs are more active than cats, so they need a healthy bonesand joint,” explained drh. Elvinka. Even for bone health, ProBalance strengthened supplements for bone which are glucosamine and chondroitin.
“One of the advantages of ProBalance is that it has exclusive kibbles that are only owned by this brand, which is shaped like the letter E in dry food. This form serves to clean tartar. Oral and dental health is important and is starting to become an attention of pet owners, “Aziz explained.
To maintain the digestive health of dogs, ProBalance contains fiber to maintain digestive health, and green tea so that the pup does not smell. “The point is, all the nutritional needs for the health of pets, are in ProBalance.
ProBalance is available in the form of dry and wet food. “Even though it is an pet food, ProBalance is produced according to human food standards, human grade and has obtained a clean holy certificate from Malaysia,” explained Aziz.
Another advantage of ProBalance is that it does not contain coloring agents, all the colors in ProBalance are obtained from native plant fibers. Azis added, to test best dog food, one of them is free of coloring, simply by absorbing it in water. Wait 5 minutes. If the color of the water does not change, it means it does not contain chemical coloring. chemical coloring is not good because it is difficult to digest by pets.
To determine whether dogs are suited better in dry or wet food, drh. Elvinka explained, wet food is usually given if the dog has less appetite. Usually dogs with problems with teeth are given this. In quality there is no difference between dry and wet food, as long as the nutritional content is complete.
“Wet food should be given alternately with dry food to avoid the formation of tartar,” explained drh. Elvinka
For food portions, adjust the dog’s body weight. “We have to make sure the dog has an ideal body weight so the food measurements must be considered. When the dog is overweight you should adjust the portion. Eating schedule is enough 2 times a day, ” she added.
ProBalance itself can be given to puppies (under 1 year), adults (over a year) and seniors (above 5-7 years) because the protein has adjusted to all dog ages.
In conclusion, maintaining a dog requires a strong commitment to ensure the dog gets the best for his health and growth. Nutrition is an important factor that must be considered. ProBalance tries to fulfill all its needs, because the complete nutrition in it and the single source meat in it guarantees better health and quality of life for dogs.
