3 BENEFICIOS BÁSICO DE INCORPORAR EL ARROZ EN LA DIETA DE TU PERRO
Dogs became omnivores when they started living with humans. Left overs became their food. As a result, dogs were able to process carbohydrates better than wolves, adapting their digestive systems and, therefore, their diets.
Quality nutrition is essential to dogs’ health, and for this reason they need balanced diets. Rice is a good option to consider and here we’ll share with you three reasons why it’s beneficial:
1. A proper diet needs a combination of cereals and animal or fish protein. In turn, cereals are very high in carbohydrates, and, in the case of rice, are easily digestible, have a low fibre content and are a major source of energy due to their glycaemic index.
2. Rice is an ideal option for dogs with food intolerances, as it is a substance that rarely causes allergies due to being gluten-free.
3. It’s also very useful for dogs with digestive or intestinal problems, when feeding low-fat food is recommended. In these situations, rice is perfect thanks to its low fat content.
Remember, the important thing is to strike a balance between the different food groups to keep your companion healthy every day.
