Feeding guideline for your Pug

A dog’s health will be affected by whatever he or she eats, so both meals and snacks should be planned carefully. Like many other dog breeds, Pugs love to eat, and they can enjoy a wide variety of flavors due to the breed’s tendency to put on weight and sensitivity to certain chemicals.

What food do Pugs eat?

Pugs consume proteins, good fats, and carbs like other dogs. For a pug’s nutritional needs, high-quality commercial dog meals that promise full nutrition should be sufficient. Mostly dry dog food will be preferable over canned dog food when it comes to the Pug. Wet dog food can lead to messy stools, while dry kibble is much better for the teeth. You may add canned food to a Pug’s dry food when it’s missing teeth or otherwise unable to digest it properly.
