Feeding an adult dog
After reaching maturity, the dog will have to shake up his eating habits and on a regular basis.
To satisfy all of its nutritional needs, the adult dog must have a proper balance in its diet.
He must offer him all the nutritional substances (proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and water)
so that he maintains an optimal physical condition.

Feeding a large dog
