10 Ways Dogs Make Humans Healthier

maria@sassydogfashions.com

The importance of dogs to man is not just in serving as pets in the homes. There is more to having it on a dog leash and moving around with your dog. There are health benefits human beings get from dogs, and to be candid, these are many, but in this write up, I will be sharing with you ten ways dogs can make you healthier.

1. Dogs can help to lower blood pressure.

According to research that was carried out among those that usually have interactions with dogs and those that do not, it was discovered that those with dogs have lower blood pressure compared to those not having anything to do with these lovely pets. And those with higher blood pressure discovered that they were recording lower blood pressure after they started interacting with dogs. They have the ability to take pressure off you.

2. Dogs help their owners to have healthier hearts.

When you laugh a lot, it has a positive effect on your heart. This is part of what you get when you have a dog. With various dog costumes available in pet store or pet shop, you can dress up your dogs in funny ways that make you smile. And dogs also have that capacity to do funny things without being dressed in funny ways. This has been backed by some studies that show that people having dogs have good heart rates compared to those who do not have.

3. Dogs have the ability to detect cancer.

Though they are not doctors but various studies have shown the ability of dogs in detecting different forms of cancer: lung cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer and so on. This they do by always sniffing out the affected parts.

4. Dogs also help in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.

A research carried out discovered that beyond having dog coats on your dog, it can lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. According to the research, pet owners have lower plasma triglyceride levels than non-pet owners and male pet owners have significantly lower cholesterol.

5. Dogs can enhance your mood.

When you own a dog, hardly will you be moody because it will always be there to keep you in company and make things that will get you out of your moody state.

6. Growing up with dogs help to reduce allergies.

Based on a research conducted in University of Virginia, it was discovered that children who lived with pets longer have higher probability of not having pet allergies in the future. And another study gave a positive correlation between the number of pets in various homes and the likelihood of babies developing allergies. It was discovered that when two or more pets were present, the likelihood of an infant developing allergies decreased significantly by 77%.

7. Having exercise with a dog is a good way of relieving arthritis pain.

If you have arthritis or you know someone with it, spending time exercising with dogs can provide a bit of relief from its pains.

8. They keep you active.

A research also concluded that dog owners have better odds of achieving fitness goals than non-dog owners. This is because they tend to be much more likely to walk for at least 150 minutes weekly with their dogs with the dog leash.

9. Dogs boost your immune system.

Some studies have it that infants who grow up with a pets in their homes are less likely to get sick compared with those who don’t have pets. Likewise, another research found out that petting a dog increase study subjects’ secretion of antibody immunoglobulin A which helps to increase the immunity to diseases.

10. Dogs can increase your life expectancy.

Spending a quality time with your dog can just be the magic you need to long life. This is obvious from some of the studies shared in the points above.

If you want your dog to be healthy and stay healthy, you have to pay attention to what it eats. Most people turn to canned foods when they want to feed their dogs because it is easily accessible and it does not require any cooking or preparation. However, a lot of canned foods are questionable and may not supply the dog with the appropriate nutrition. In today’s post, we’ll discuss some easy tricks to make delicious homemade dog food.

Nutritional Requirements for Dogs and Their sources

  1. High-quality protein – meat, dairy, egg, seafood
  2. Carbohydrate – Grains, Beans, Vegetable
  3. Fat – Meat, Oil
  4. Calcium – Milk, crushed or powdered eggshells
  5. Fatty Acids – Oatmeal, cooked egg yolk, plant oils

Your dog is part of your family so you should ensure it gets exactly what it needs in its diet just like you do for the other members of your family.

However, you should never include any of the following into your dog food: peppers, beer, pomegranate, chocolate, nuts, garlic, gum, grapes, avocado, shrimp, onions, walnuts, almonds, marshmallow and mushroom.

5 Best Tips to Make Delicious Homemade Dog Food

1. Meat and other animal products should be half of the diet

Fifty percent of dog food should contain:

  • Boneless Meat: This includes red meat and poultry
  • Organs: This should be about five percent of animal products.
  • Fish: This should be one ounce per pound of meat, but ensure you feed your dog cooked fish.
  • Dairy: This is a good source of protein and calcium; however you should limit any type of cheese that is not a cottage and ricotta cheese.
  • Eggs: A big dog can have a whole egg per day.
2. Vegetables and Grains

These are essential for providing carbohydrate calories and a lot of other essential nutrients. They should make up a very high proportion of the other fifty percent of dog food. Below are some vegetables that are good for dogs:

  • Starchy Vegetables: Potatoes, beans, and pumpkins supply carbohydrate calories that are very food for dogs, especially active dogs. However, they must not be fed to them raw and they should be limited for overweight dogs.
  • Leafy Vegetables: They can be fed in any desired quantity.
  • Grains: Oatmeal, pasta, brown rice, quinoa, and barley are good grains for dogs. However, they must be well cooked.
Calcium

Dog food should contain about 1000 mg calcium per pound of food. Some calcium-rich foods that are you can feed your dogs are Kale, tofu, rice (not white rice), edamame, sesame seeds, broccoli, almond, and soy milk.

Oils

Add fish oil or cod liver oil to their diet on days you don’t feed fish or on days you don’t feed too much fish.

Vitamins and Minerals

To ensure your homemade diet can supply adequate vitamins and minerals, you can add supplements to their food.
