What to feed the DonskoyDonskoys, like other cats, eat meat. Never forget that when you’re trying to decide what you should feed your new Donskoy. If you don’t adhere to his natural diet, your Donskoy may seem like a finicky eater. You can have a hard time getting your Donskoy to eat if you’re giving him non-meat based foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc.

What to serve to the Donskoy?

Always keep in mind Donskoys are closely related to the fiercest of felines — tigers, lions,and cheetahs, etc. — so keep that in mind when you’re feeding the Donskoy. Never will you see an adult panther on Animal Planet eating an apple, drinking milk or chewing grass in his natural habitat. You also would never see a young jaguar cub in the wild drinking milk from a cow, or any other animal. As ridiculous as these examples appear, that’s exactly how many people feed their Donskoys. Don’t be surprised when your Donskoy goes without eating. Donskoys don’t eat the same way dogs and humans do. As far as their diet is concerned, they are very inflexible, and as an owner you must always keep this in mind. In contrast to what their owners should be eating, Donskoys need to eat a lot of meat for protein and fat. If we ate like Donskoys, we’d have serious health issues at a young age. Although they’re a part of your family, does not mean they should eat what you or the dogs eat. Quite often, you’ll find people who feed their Donskoys the same way they feed themselves and their dog, although the Donskoys diet is much more limited. Since dog food is predominantly carbohydrates, a dog’s diet can be deadly to your Donskoy if fed consistently. Donskoys should not eat carbs and can’t process them well. Many times, when you see an extremely heavy domestic Donskoy it’s because he was forced to eat a diet heavy in carbohydrates. Too many carbs over an extended period also puts the Donskoy at risk of diabetes. The long and short of it is that Donskoys must avoid carbohydrates at all cost.

Satisfying Your Donskoy’s Palate

Prior to deciding on a particular food for the Donskoy make sure it is recommended by the American Association of Feed Control Officials. Satisfying those standards guarantees that your Donskoy is receiving the proper nutrition. Feel free to ignore marketing terms like “super-premium”, ” natural”, ” premium”, and “gourmet” which have no standard definition. You can ask your veterinarian which type of food (wet or dry) is best for your Donskoy. After you’ve decided on the optimum food, it’s now the time to let your Donskoy make the final decision. The food is a a great choice if your Donskoy likes it and doesn’t show any noticeable discomfort afterward. If your Donskoy doesn’t seem to enjoy it, however, you must go back to square 1. Donskoys often will go on hunger strikes rather than eat food they don’t tolerate, and these strikes are truly harmful. If she decides to a hunger strike, the Donskoy runs an extreme risk of liver failure or death. Don’t switch foods abruptly, either. Be certain you replace the old food a little at a time in small amounts over a week. This prevents the Donskoy from rejecting the new food outright and lessens the risk of upsetting your kitty’s stomach.

Donskoy Snacks, Portion Size, and Feeding Time

How much food does your Donskoy need? The answer may surprise you. For instance, is your Donskoy a house cat or a yard cat or both? Has your Donskoy been sterilized? Answers to both of these questions affect your Donskoy’s nutritional requirements. Your best bet is to consult your veterinarian, who will determine your Donskoys ideal weight and daily nutritional requirements. Take charge and ask your veterinarian about your Donskoy’s food and weight. Once you find out how much your Donskoy needs, don’t deviate. Although it seems like it’s not enough, your Donskoy will get used to it and stay at a ideal weight. For Donskoys, it’s hard to get the weight off once they get overweight. Next, plan the Donskoy’s meals. Donskoys like to eat small portions throughout the day, so expect to leave food out so he can eat whenever hunger strikes. You can put out half in the am before leaving for work and the other half when you return. Although you may like to give your Donskoy treats, do so infrequently. Don’t let snacks dilute their nutrition. Just like with people, you don’t want them eating too much salt.
