General Overview of Dietary Needs | The German Shepherd
In a perfect world, you would be able and equipped to feed your German shepherd dog fresh, preservative-free healthy meals for every meal. But in this busy world few of us have time to cook for ourselves, let alone our beloved pets, and so it may well be necessary to seek out a prepackaged replacement – a dog food company whose formula matches the nutritional requirements of German Shepherds dogs in the wild. There are a number of high quality dogs foods that make excellent kibble along with moist canned foods.
In short, don't skimp when it comes to the brand you choose; some brands are far healthier than others, and price shouldn't be your only concern when it comes to brand shopping and comparison. However, keep in mind that your average healthy German Shepherd of a mature age goes through over 40 kg (nearly 100 lbs!) of dry dog food a month, so be prepared to set aside a significant portion of your monthly budget on dog food. It's important to stay away from dog foods that use inferior ingredients; fillers that provide no real essential nutritional value for your German Shepherd.
