Your puggle will profit from important vitamins and minerals in his diet. Some of these include glucosamine and chondroitin, which are excellent supplements for joint strength, health, and mobility. Essential fatty acids are paramount for healthy joints, skin, coat, heart, liver, vision, and digestion. Calcium and phosphorus are also needed for strong bones. Vitamins A, C, and E are required for healthy vision and immune system. A protein-rich diet is essential for lean muscle development and to help your food-loving Puggle feel full longer and stay at a healthy weight. Prebiotics and/or probiotics aid in healthy digestion.
Choose a premium-quality dog food for your puggle that meets his daily calorie and nutritional needs. It should particularly cater to his age, breed, energy levels, and size. You can ask the vet for help in picking out the best high-quality dog food for your puggle.
Keep away from commercial dog food. It may be a cheap alternative, but it is low in nutritional value. Some commercial dog food brands also have additives and preservatives that are detrimental to his health. Never skip giving your dog fresh water, especially on a hot day. This will keep him hydrated and prevent heatstroke.
