6 Dog Feeding Tips For Hot Days:
- Follow your dog´s appetite level and decrease his or her daily portion accordingly.
- If you feed breakfast, skip it occasionally or at times when the weather is very hot for several days in a row.
- Consider fasting once a week; or partial fasting such as giving your dog just one nice smaller juicy raw meaty bone to chew in the late evening or early morning in nice cool shade. For small breeds just part of a chicken neck is perfect.
- Offer meals at room temperature or slightly cooler. Too cold is not good for your dog´s stomach.
- Feed in a cool shady place. In the summertime, my pack refuses to eat before the sun settles down behind the treetops, but will gladly dive into their dishes once it cools off.
- Avoid feeding fatty meats and warming foods. That includes not only certain meat types, but also warming herbs and spices, oatmeal, etc.
