Types of food to feed your Castro

1. Food preparation

Principle: “Meat and Vegetables”

(1) Meat is indispensable, slightly cooked

(2) Never give meat only, which can lead to an imbalance of acidity in the dog’s body

Performance:The dog suddenly likes to wander in front of the feces or eat grass abnormally.

Solution: Add trace amounts of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) to drinking water or add enough plant-based ingredients to recipes.

Dogs’ intestines are not well suited to digesting fiber-rich plants, so use roots and tubers like carrots, potatoes, and groundnuts

(3) Using only cereals (rice, porridge, dumplings, etc.) as food: the actual calorific value of absorbed nutrients is insufficient

Solution: Use meat soup with grains

Regular supplements of calcium and yeast to aid digestion

Periodic administration of fats, egg yolks and trace amounts of salt

(4) Don’t feed unusual things like.

Mollusks and Crustaceans of the Deep Sea.

Octopus, squid, squid, shrimp, crab, shellfish, and all kinds of fish are also kept to a minimum

Vegetables with a pungent flavor: onions, chili peppers, peppers, leeks, garlic

Foods that are too hot or too cold.

Cold milk (causes diarrhea) Ideal temperature is close to the dog’s body temperature

Condiments: sugar, soy sauce, mustard, too much salt

Chocolate, cream cakes, fried foods and most leftovers

(5) Handling food

Any long animal bone thinner than a pencil (e.g., chicken bone, rabbit tibia, fish bone)

No food at all.

Fiber-rich foods should be well chopped and mashed

Large pieces of food should be cut into smaller pieces

Avoid unclean and spoiled foods

(6) Don’t feed your dog with food from the table, as it will develop a habit of begging for food, which will lead to picky eating.

Condiments can impair a dog’s appetite

(7) Food preparation process notes.

Cook the pasta separately from the meat and vegetables, and mix it later.

Maintaining nutrition as the main focus, with taste as a secondary concern

Don’t wash the rice too much, don’t cook the meat too much

Feed now, don’t leave it too long

Use a little salt, avoid flavoring, and especially abstain from sugar.

2. Commercial dog food

Pure dog food feeding is best with some meat cubes on a regular basis

(1) Dry dog food

Small dogs up to 5 kg: 120 g/day

Weight 10 kg: 200 g/day

Medium-sized dogs: 400-600 grams per day

Large dogs: 700 grams per day

Attention to the provision of adequate water

Dog cookies: a great reward food!

(2) Semi-moist dog food

Unwrapped should be fed as soon as possible, should also be provided weekly grains and vegetable elk as a supplement, the amount of feeding should be increased by 20%-30% than dry dog food

(3) Canned dog food

Generally lack of comprehensive nutrition, mostly used as appetizing feed for sick and weak dogs, supplemental feed for whelping bitches or emergency feed for going out, feeding amount should be 3 times of dry dog food.


There is no rule for deworming drugs and time, the most commonly used drug is levamisole, which is usually dewormed once after 20 days of puppy’s birth, then for three days in a row in 30-35 days, and then once again before 60 days. At present, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Hong Kong often adopt the following deworming protocol: the first deworming is carried out 2 weeks after birth, and deworming is carried out every 2 weeks from 2 to 8 weeks of age; deworming is carried out once a month from 2 to 6 months of age; deworming is carried out once every three months after 6 months of age. For dogs at 6 months of age who are not sure whether to be dewormed or not, the deworming should generally be repeated after the first deworming, and then every three months thereafter.

Adult dogs every three months deworming, depending on the situation can be appropriate to lengthen the interval, deworming roundworms, such as levamisole, deworming tapeworms to use arsenic quinolone, trichomoniasis with metronidazole, different parasites should be used to choose different deworming medication, in general, if the parasites are more, the feces from the dog can be seen in the type of certain parasites, but trichomoniasis, coccidia need to be determined by microscope laboratory, so deworming must be The right medication should be given to the right person.


Immunization of puppies is critical and is usually done at 28 days of age with a puppy diphtheria or at 45-60 days of age with the first multiplex vaccination, followed by the second and third multiplex vaccination every 25-30 days thereafter. The other way is to do the first multiplex vaccination on the 50th-60th day of life, the second multiplex vaccination on the 80th-90th day, and the third multiplex vaccination at the sixth month. Vaccination should not be done too early, otherwise it will interfere with the immunity of the mother that the puppy carries (except for the Duplex for puppies), and two vaccinations at an interval of less than 15 days will cause the puppy to accumulate too many viruses in the body and lead to serious consequences. Adult dogs should be immunized once a year, or once every six months for kennels with high breeding density.
