Kibble & Dry Food
Other ETT owners feed high quality kibble formulated for a toy breed.
When feeding kibble, pay attention to the ingredients.
Look out for:
- Single sources of protein
Look for specifics e.g. chicken rather than general meat
- Whole meat source listed as 1 of the first 2 ingredients
- 80/20 diet – 80% protein, 20% fruits, vegetables and botanicals, 0% grain
- Whole vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices and botanicals
- Meat by-products and derivatives
- “General” animal fat source – look for specifics e.g. chicken fat or beef fat.
The more general the source, the more suspect the ingredient
- Artificial preservatives
Including BHA, BHT, or ethoxyquin
- Artificial colours & flavours
- Artificial texture enhancer propylene glycol
- Artificial sweetners
Corn syrup, sucrose, ammoniated glycyrrhizin, and other sweeteners are sometimes added to lower-quality foods to increase their appeal
Make a habit of reading the packet before purchasing, this also applies to treats.
Go for products with a high protein content and that are grain free.
These are good quality small kibbles suitable for an English Toy Terrier.
Remember when changing your dog’s food, at any age, introduce it slowly over the course of a week. The more gradually you do this, the less likely it is your dog will have an upset stomach.
