Dry food for dogs: premium quality from Bellfor
Appropriate nutrition is of utmost importance for the health and wellbeing of your dog. A high-quality dry dog food can be the perfect basis for this purpose. When choosing dry food from Bellfor, dog owners opt for species-appropriate premium quality products.
Can you feed dogs exclusively with dry food?
Many dog owners may doubt that the inconspicuous kibble in dry dog food is actually sufficient to feed a dog over the long term.
However, if the dry food is of good quality and it is a complete food, you can rest assured that your four-legged friend will receive all the necessary nutrients and that there will be no deficiency symptoms. With Bellfor dry food, both are the case, so that additional feeding with wet food or other food is not necessary.
Dog food: dry or wet?
As a the owner you have to choose between buying dry or wet dog food. There are many advantages to choosing good dry dog food. On one hand, dry dog food is particularly easy to store. It has a comparatively long shelf life, can be portioned very precisely and still provides the four-legged friend with all the important nutrients as needed, provided that good quality is taken into account when buying.
Grain-free dry food for dogs
More and more dog owners are aware that grain is not an important part of a balanced diet for their four-legged friend. Wheat in particular, which is often used in cheap dog food, can actually prove to be very problematic. It can sometimes cause serious complaints in dogs and, among other things, promote digestive problems and food intolerance.
In the Bellfor range you will therefore find different types of dry food for dogs that do not contain grain and are therefore particularly easy to digest.
Gluten-free dry food for dogs
If you want to feed your dog dry food that contains grain, you should stick to to varieties with gluten-free grains.
Bellfor Premium Pur is dry dog food with gluten-free grain. Instead of low-quality wheat, we use easily digestible rice and corn as a wholesome source of carbohydrates. Bellfor Premium Pur dry dog food is available in different varieties and is amongst others an excellent choice for physically active four-legged friends.
Cold-pressed dry dog food
Dry food for dogs can be distinguished not only by its composition, but also on the basis of the manufacturing process. Cold-pressed dog food, for example, is produced particularly gently. The temperatures that are reached in the cold pressing process are comparatively low, so that the valuable nutrients in the food are optimally preserved.
In addition, the cold-pressed croquettes do not swell as much in the dog's stomach. This fact makes this dry food a good choice, especially for large dogs, as it lowers the risk of life-threatening gastric torsion in large breeds.
The right dry food for dogs of any age
If you consider buying dry food for your dog, you should make sure that the food of your choice is suitable for the age of your four-legged friend. After all, puppies, for example, have different nutritional needs than adult dogs. In order to ensure an adequate supply, it is therefore essential to take this fact into account when buying food for the dog.
Bellfor dry food for puppies and growing dogs
We want to support our customers in offering their dogs well-balanced food from an early age. In our range you will therefore also find high-quality dry food for puppies and growing dogs. The varieties offer an adapted formula, through which the special nutritional needs of young dogs are reliably met.
Hypoallergenic dog food: dry food for nutritionally sensitive dogs
More and more dogs suffer from food intolerances or food allergies. It is estimated that intolerances now occur in more than half of all four-legged friends. In order to get the unpleasant symptoms that are associated with it under control, it is crucial for affected dogs to switch to more digestible dog food.
We recommend our hypoallergenic dry dog food based on insects for this purpose. The larvae of the black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens), which are used as a protein source therein, have practically no allergy potential. At the same time, their protein is characterised by its high biological value and its excellent digestibility.
Experience has shown that our hypoallergenic dry dog food is very well tolerated by allergic or generally nutritionally sensitive dogs and, thanks to the high-quality insect protein, is ideal for a permanent change of food which guarantees the adequate nutrition of your four-legged friend.
How much dry food does my dog need?
Obesity is known to be a common problem in dogs that can have serious health consequences in the long run. To avoid this, it is important that you ensure that the portion sizes are appropriate when feeding your four-legged friend.
For this purpose keep in mind that dry dog food has a significantly higher energy density than wet food. Accordingly, your four-legged friend needs a smaller amount of it in order to take in an adequate amount of calories.
How large the portions should be for your dog depends on various factors such as the age, weight and physical activitiy of the animal. On the packaging of our dry food you will find a recommendation graded according to weight, which you can use as a guide when calculating the amount of food for your dog. Weigh the meals either with a kitchen scale or use a suitable measuring cup, as you can find it as an accessory in our shop.
Feeding dry food: dogs must drink plenty of water
The water content of dry food is significantly lower than that of wet food. This not only leads to a higher energy density, but also means that your dog consumes less fluid with its meals. If you mainly rely on dry food for feeding, it is therefore particularly important that you always provide your four-legged friend with plenty of fresh water to drink.
Should I moisten the dog's dry food?
Regularly moistening the dry food with water or other liquids is usually not recommended, as experience has shown that this often leads to soft faeces in dogs and thus increases amongst others the risk of problems with the anal glands.
