Tried & Tested Ways To Fulfil Your Pet’s Nutritional Needs In Monsoons

It’s given that as pet owners, it is only our responsibility to ensure that our furry friends receive the best care and attention not just in any particular season but at all year round. However, monsoon season calls for much more care than ever especially in terms of their dietary needs. Providing them with healthy and balanced food is imperative to maintain their general well-being and overcome any potential health issues that may arise during this wet and humid period.

Here is a quick checklist of all that you may need to do in this damp season.

Keeping Their Eating and Drinking Bowls Clean:

First thing first. The bowls that they eat and drink in. Would you ever eat in a platter that isn’t clean? The same goes for our pet babies. In fact, their bowls are more susceptible to bacteria if not cleaned after every use. So, the first step towards ensuring a good health for our pets in monsoons is by keeping their eating and drinking bowls clean. Moisture in wet climate, saliva from their previously eaten meal may often lead to the development of harmful bacteria and parasites.

These pose a severe threat to their wellness. It is therefore important to wash their bowls regularly with hot water and mild detergent to eliminate any potential risk.

Offering Wholesome Treats:

Rains keep our pets indoors for longer durations. They cannot move outside as frequently and even if they do they are brought back home soon. This may lead to boredom. Therefore, to keep them engaged and happy, we must offer them wholesome treats that are free of rawhide and unhealthy ingredients. Opting for healthy and nutritious treats can be given to them guilt-free.

Nutribles Himalayan Dog Chew or Nutribles Nugg’it Yourself, rich in calcium, protein, magnesium, and vitamins are the best options by far. These are made from absolutely real ingredients and are a vegetarian treat. Also, they are long lasting, non-staining and odour-free. You must choose treats and snacks that support optimal health.

The Benefits of Home-Cooked Meals:

While commercially sold pet food is convenient and there are ample options to choose from, treating our pets to home-cooked warm meals can be highly beneficial in maintaining their health during monsoons. What is so special about the homemade meals? We have control over the ingredients, we may choose from what our pets may like or dislike. We can ensure that they receive a well-balanced diet. The best way is to include a variety of health-supportive ingredients such as lean meats, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits to provide them with the necessary nutrients for their overall well-being.

Apart from these mains, many pet parents swear by organic supplements like Nutribles Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Nutribles Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Both are certified organic and have ample nutrients to keep their health good & fur coat and skin in good condition. Adding either to your pet’s food anyway may help making it a balanced food.

Essential Nutrients for your Pet's Diet:

Understanding what can provide them warmth and nourishment at the same time is crucial. In order to create a well-balanced diet for your pet dog, it is significant to know the essential nutrients they may require on a daily basis. Once we know the requirements, we choose the right stuff that goes in their food bowl. Pets may have their own challenges and every pet is different. Their food must consist of an adequate amount of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, calcium, fats, and vitamins. Protein may help in muscle development, while carbohydrates may provide energy for their daily activities. Including fiber aids in digestion and prevents constipation, and calcium is essential for strong bones and teeth. Lastly, fats and vitamins contribute to a healthy skin and coat, and promote overall immunity.

Here are a few easy and effective monsoon food recommendations that may come to your use.

Your pet is unique. He may want to eat your food too as much as he would love to eat his own. Monsoon is a good time to bring to him all nice meals that can be done at home. The question is what can be fed to them what not. Some ingredients like wheat, gluten, grain, soy and corn do not suit their health. Refer to the list below to understand the right ingredients -

1. Boiled Chicken or Fish: Ensure the bones are removed from the meat of chicken or fish since bone may cause choking hazards. Serve either as a part of their meal. You may decide the portion after checking with your vet. It is a great source of protein and easily digestible by their system. Chicken broth is a great way to add hydration and health both.

2. Rice and Lentils: With many commercial food options we have today, many dogs may not be accustomed to eating rice and lentils. Pets in those day back were primarily fed rice, lentils or rice & curd. Nonetheless you may try to serve them a little bit to see how they like it. Do not add spices. Just cook both well with a pinch of turmeric. It can be a simple yet nutritious meal that provides carbohydrates, proteins, and essential vitamins.

3. Vegetables:

Vegetables provide important vitamins and they are super fiber rich. You may steam or boil vegetables like pumpkin, carrots, or sweet potatoes to their meals. Add a spoon of Nutribles Organic Virgin Coconut Oil to make it an awesome balanced diet.

4. Probiotics: Incorporate unsweetened yogurt or curd in their diet to maintain a healthy gut. Probiotics may help you ensure a good health during monsoons.

5. Chia Seeds: Incorporating fiber in your pet’s diet is a great way to ensure they have a great internal system.

Chia seeds, in moderation provides fiber and other good nutrients too since they are a super-food.

Healthy and balanced diet for our pets helps them to stay energetic and loving! Homemade meals, depending on the ingredients you choose, may at times not suffice for all the nutrients they need. It is advisable to strictly check their health needs before feeding them whatever is easily available at home.
