Importance of a Healhy Border Collie Diet

When it comes to your Border Collies health, one of the most important factors is the dogs diet. A healthy and well balanced meal will improve the dogs health, mood, energy and can even extend their life expectancy.

The problem with majority food on the market is that it is of poor quality. A big chunk of the dog food brands fill the food with discussing leftovers that had to be bleached to get rid of bacteria and disease it’s full of. And they can get away with selling it to the public because it’s dog food and not human food, so the standards of what’s qualified as “food” are different.

That’s not where it ends either. In order to preserve the food, the dog food contains additives and preservatives. Many of the ones used for dog food are known to cause cancer and other health problems, but the manufacturers are allowed to get away with it because they add them in “too small amounts to have an effect”. If that’s true then why is cancer the number one cause of death in dogs that are over 10 years old?

So please take care of your Border Collie and make sure the food that you are feeding him is of high quality with as little additives, fillers and preservatives as possible. If you have the time, cooking his food yourself would be the ideal choice as long as the meal is well balanced and has all the nutrition that the dog needs.
