P food can probably be divided into two categories: "completely natural" and "usual". Some manufacturers also use the terms "premium" and "super-premium" or "professional". Unfortunately, there are no rules concerning these groups of pet food and what exactly should be placed in each one.

and the application of inappropriate rations for feeding, not only causes obesity but also incurs grave consequences for a dog. These consequences are as follows: poor blood circulation, organs of movement, sterility, skin
diseases and so on. Digestion disorders are often the first signs of disease.
These disorders are treated with the "Special Light" diet. The "Special Light" diet contains less concentrated forage components what helps achieve a normalizing balance, satisfying food needs at the same time. The "Special Light" contains foods of high assimilability such as turkey meat and rice. The "Special Light" diet promotes the fast recovery of the micro flora of bowels and stomach by incorporating smaller amounts of protein and minerals and preserves the excretion system from excessive loads.
One of the best dog diets includes the following ingredients: rice, barley, bird meat, wheat bran, vegetable fats, necessary minerals and vitamins. This dog food is really a natural balance dog food as far as it meets all requirements for a dog diet. "Special Light" can be fed dry or wet. A daily norm can be divided to two feedings.

Since the reasons and stages of disease are different with different dogs,
feeding norms should be taken as the base but an individual ration should be
adjusted with the advice of a veterinary physician. If you want your dog to grow thin then the norms of the ration should be decreased. The "Special Light" diet contains low protein and fats and it is recommended that you feed your dog with it for no more than six weeks and then increase the ration accordingly.
