Eating and feeding Scotch Terrier breed dogs

The ideal nutrition of Scotch Terrier is a dry, balanced, high-quality food, without an excess of protein, as these dogs are very mobile.

If the dog has a poorly active lifestyle, you should reduce the portions or the protein content, because if the animal starts to get fat, problems with the liver can occur. Terriers do not force them to beg for food, so you need to carefully monitor their weight.

Puppies, of course, require special nutrition for their age. Even if they prefer the most natural and the finest food in the world

It is important to remember 2 main rules when feeding Scotch terrier:

  • Liver in humans is much stronger than in dogs. Therefore, if we do not want to harm the animal, it is necessary to eliminate fatty foods and harmful products from its diet.
  • Dogs are predators by nature, because they are descended from wolves. Therefore, the entire body of dogs adapted for the digestion of raw food. After heat exposure, the protein changes its properties and becomes difficult to digest, as the enzymes that the dog's stomach secretes are not adapted for digesting the reconstructed protein.

Worse results are caused by the presence of all kinds of chemicals in the feed - food additives, dyes, taste improvers, preservatives, etc.

Any disruption of natural nutrition leads to problems of the gastrointestinal tract and metabolism and as a result to diseases.

And if for some reason it’s impossible for us to eliminate eating disorders completely, then our main goal is to minimize them as much as possible.
