WoofYums’ Food for Senior Dogs

With age the stamina and health of any dog decline. Similar to humans, their immune systems become weaker as well. Slow rate of metabolism demands a reduction in calorie intake. At Woof Yums, the cases of senior dogs are considered carefully. Hence, the meals for senior dogs are prepared with extra caution.
Considering the breed, age, weight and level of activity of your dog, the Woof Yums’ DOG FEEDING GUIDE provides information on the ideal serving quantities and feeding intervals for senior dogs. Let us say, one can feed in one whole suggested serving by dividing it into two small meals (1/3 in morning and 2/3 in evening). This is subject to level of digestive comfort of your senior pet. However, never follow any food guide without referring to a vet.

The age at which any canine should switch to senior diet is depending very much on the breed and health of the dog.  For instance, although the smaller breeds mature fast, their aging process is much slower than any giant dog. Any larger breed doggy is categorized as seniors as soon as they turn 5 or 6. On the contrary, a smaller breed like terrier cannot be called older till the age of 10 to 12.

Woof Yums understands the importance of correct diet for an aging dog. Their senior dog food caterings are lower in protein, sodium and phosphorus to support aging hearts and kidneys. An increased amount of certain vitamins are also been added to the meals. Not to worry, if your older dog has any particular health problems including failing kidneys, diabetes or poor nutrient absorption in his gut, Woof Yums specific customized caters will help pacifying that problem.

Senior dogs are prone to obesity which can eventually resulting in many health problems. Proper feeding, routine veterinary checkups and exercise are the essential tools to keep them healthy with an increased life expectancy!

Bringing Home a Pup : Nourish It With WoofYums Puppy Food!

Adorable, fluffy, furry and of course hungry all the time! Can you blame it? No way! It is the growing stages which to be blamed and not your cute pup. Like the human babies, puppies too grow rapidly. The growth in regard to their bones, muscles, joints, internal organs and immune system; depends on proper nutrition. 

Compared to fully grownup ones, the growing ones show omnivorous feeding trait. Thus, it is natural that their diet needs to be prepared with right amount of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals and water to make it a complete and balanced food.

One has to pay attention to the fact that the amount of food a puppy needs varies during growth. It also depends on the pup’s breed, age, the level of activities, gender, environment and metabolism too.

At WoofYums, puppy food is planned particularly meeting the nutritional needs of young and still growing ones. The composition is quite different. It has almost twice the daily nutritional requirements compared to what a mature dog’s food demands. For instance puppy food contains about 30 percent protein, as well as the vitamins and minerals that are needed for a puppy to be healthy and to help in building a strong body.

Pet food is divided into three types: moist, semi-moist, and dry kibble. The perfect pick for your pup is dry type for its higher meat protein. For puppies younger than eight weeks, one needs to moisten dry food until it feels spongy. Moist puppy food is also easy to digest. However, as it is composed of 75 percent water, so it contains fewer nutrients.  The best option is usually to feed your puppy a combined diet of dry kibble with moist ones. The diet chart at WoofYums comes handy as a guide and gives important tips like pups should be fed solid food starting at about four weeks. Even if they are on mother’s milk, they don’t get all the essential calories from it. Most puppies are weaned by six weeks. They should eat three times a day from weaning through four to six months. After six months, twice-a-day feedings are fine.

The categorization of small and large breed in the WoofYums feeding guide; helps in preparing the diet plan.
