Have you ever wondered if there is anything you can do nutritionally to enhance your dog’s intelligence? Well, there is! Fat balance is one of many important aspects of feeding a balanced raw diet. Sixty percent of the mammalian brain is made up of fat so in order for it to function at its best, it needs brain food, literally!
It has been proven that a healthy diet improves a puppy’s ability to learn faster and remember more. It also enhances an older dog’s ability to retain their mental sharpness and improves their overall sense of well-being. DHA (an omega 3 fatty acid) is especially important for improving memory, learning, and helping to fight mental disorders.
