Dogs and Rice and Vegetable



I keep hearing quite often that people feed their dogs rice with vegetable and perhaps cooked chicken.
Here is what I learned quite some time ago, and researched, resulting in a diet I provide my Papillons, made out of mostly fresh meat,some bone,  and small amounts of dairy and vegetable.

Rice belongs in the group of starches. Starches are a form of highly concentrated carbohydrates.
Dogs have no need for carbohydrates, which are an incomplete source of protein. Dogs need  good quality sources of proteins and fats  for building , and maintaining healthy muscle, bones, cell tissue;  which are given in a variety of fresh meats.
Cooked rice may be beneficial for an occasional dog suffering from diarrhea, but given on a regular base could lead to nutritional deficiency, and long term health consequences.
Look at rice as a "Filler". And "fillers" should definitely be avoided.

  • Starchy foods include:

Peas, corn potatoes, beans, pasta, rice and grains

Here a nice chart for a quick look what your dog should be eating:

Please click on all the links above. Get informed, and start today by going to the store , getting a little bit of any quality meat, and offer it to your four-legged friend.
There is nothing better you can do by providing him fresh food, which you cut up in (small) parts, according to the size of your dog.
And serve!!
