Many things can be said about nutrition and properly feeding your Cane Corso or any dog for that matter. All dogs whether mastiffs or smaller breeds deserve to be fed a well-balanced diet full of the nutrients essential to their development. We all want our dogs to live as long as they can and to be healthy, happy and balance. Society and the way we live have pushed us to taking the easy route when it comes to our cane corso’s diet. We see commercials, we see billboards, we see a wide selection of dog food on the shelf’s at Pet Stores, in supermarkets and we are led to believe that this is the optimal diet for our dogs, But as time goes on our dogs start suffering from cancer, diabetes, liver disease, hip dysplasia, skin allergies, and many more “issues”.
As a dog owner myself, I know and understand that it can be difficult to learn and understand what is best for our dogs. Life is hectic, between work, children, family, and all the things that need to be done throughout the day we hardly have time for ourselves let alone finding out puppies or adult Cane Corso’s a proper diet. But there are alternatives, companies like Carnivore Nutrition provide us with easy meal plans for our pets. With a variety of food that makes your dog eager for their next meal.
Raw food not only helps your pets live longer, but also gives them an opportunity at a balanced life. My recommendation is to find articles, read the labels on the dog food your buying and truly understand what you’re feeding your Cane Corso.
To understand the nutritional requirements of your Cane Corso, it’s important to understand a fundamental aspect of their physiological make up, Cane Corso’s ARE CARNIVORES. Wolves were built to assist in maintaining a balance in nature and to preserve life. Wolves are excellent hungers and they have thrived on an all raw meat, bones, organs and predigested foods (such as grass, seeds, fruit and vegetables) for ages. I’m not sure about you but I have never seen a wolf in the wild cooking or slaving over a stove. A canine’s digestive track passes food faster than humans, helping to prevent them from building any harmful bacteria. The speed of the dog’s digestion means that it needs the proper enzymes to simply digest its food.
