This table is intended as a guide only and exact feeding amounts should be varied according to your dog’s age, sex, breed, condition and activity levels. Please note that feeding amounts should be based on the ideal adult body weight for your dog. Adult dogs should be fed twice per day. When introducing VetSpec into your dog’s diet we advise that this is done gradually over a period of 5-10 days until it replaces all other food. Fresh drinking water should always be available.

Technical Focus

Natural meat levels in a dog’s diet

Contrary to commonly held views on the internet, dogs cannot survive on an all muscle tissue diet. Although high in protein, muscle tissue is deficient in calcium, phosphorus, sodium, iron, copper, iodine and several vitamins. It is true that in the wild, the distant ancestors of dogs survived on freshly killed meat. However, they also consumed their entire prey including bones, organs, and intestinal contents. Most prey in the wild were herbivores and therefore the gut contents contained mainly plant based materials. So, the wild ancestors and our domesticated dog are more like omnivores than carnivores. Modern research shows this is the case and that the domestic dog’s digestive system has further evolved with enzyme processes to digest even higher levels of carbohydrate. There is therefore a balance when Five generations of Dantassie Golden Retrievers fed on VetSpec and owned by Christine Haxton from North Yorkshire. Left to right - Sh.Ch formulating the perfect diet for dogs and levels of meat between 40-60% seem appropriate.
