I would like to give my dog snacks and cookies.

hile feeding your pet FINEPET'S dog food, we caution not to give your dog snacks such as cookies, jerky, or gum, or any human foods. We caution against snacks because they may lessen or cancel out the beneficial effects of our dog food.

In general, jerky has a high amount of salinity, coloring agents, preservatives, and antioxidants. Cookies and other grain based snacks are not good for digestion and absorption. And above all, we do not recommend the dangerous additives included in snack foods.

Our dog likes meat, so we feed it to him directly.

Since the ancestors of dogs and wolves were carnivorous animals, it is a common misconception that meat is a sufficient diet. However, wild wolves eat first from the internal organs of herbivorous animals that they hunt, and ingest the vitamins and minerals that are not in meats. After that they eat the meat and bones for a perfectly balanced diet.

Carnivorous animals must also include various types of foods in order to gain all the nutrition they need for a balanced diet. For example, meat contains a large amount of phosphorus, but the ratio of phosphorus to calcium is ideally about 1: 0.8. If the amount of phosphorus is too high, calcium cannot be properly digested and can lead to diseases like rickets.

Therefore, we can say that you should not give your dog meat alone.

Why can’t you give white meat to dogs?

Since the white meat of chicken has a high phosphorus content, it will destroy the calcium in the body, and ruin the balance of phosphorus and calcium. As long as you give only the highly nutritionally balanced FINEPET'S dog food and water, you do not need to give your dog any other foods.

If you really want to give your dog some meat, a portion other than the white meat (leg, breast meat) should be given only in very small amounts. However, please understand that this is likely to inhibit the reforming effects of FINEPET'S dog food.

We want to give leftovers to our dog, especially leftover bonito flakes from soups and brown rice.

Basically, dogs have a hard time digesting and absorbing grains like brown rice. This is because dogs are carnivores. Dogs cannot digest and absorb the germ contained in brown rice. It would be better for your dog to stop offering them brown rice.

It should be noted that TLC dog food does contain whole grain, or brown, rice, but in addition to the fact that nutrients are different from normal brown rice, the rice is also finely ground so that it can be easily digested and absorbed. In this way we can ensure that it is an effective and quality source of fiber.

Simply cooking brown rice without appropriately processing it can lead to indigestion, so we do not believe that is it good to offer your dog.
