Features of dry food for sterilized dogs

After sterilization, the vet may advise you to change the pet food. This is due to the fact that sterilization changes the body's metabolism and deprives it of the production of certain sex hormones, which affects the further development of the body.

Why do we need special food for sterilized dogs?

Food for sterilized dogs from the usual differs primarily low calorie. Hormone failure often leads to the fact that the animal on the same feed after the operation begins to gain weight. There is no point in keeping it on a diet, otherwise you can get a “pendulum effect”. That is, upon returning to the usual food, the increased weight will not only return, but also increase.

Therefore, you need a lifelong lightweight diet. But it must be balanced and complete. After all, a sterilized dog is not a sick dog. She just needs a low-calorie, but complete feed and active walks.

Another problem is the dosage of feed. The dog should not be kept half starving, but the food should not remain in the bowl. It is necessary to conduct a series of experiments, and to determine at what dose of food, the dog is not hungry, eats all the food and would like to eat some more.
