Ojos Azuless are predators. That’s the most important thing to keep in mind as you are considering what to feed your new Ojos Azules. If you don’t stick to her natural diet, your Ojos Azules may become a finicky eater. You can have difficulty getting the Ojos Azules to eat if you’re giving him non-meat based foods like fruits, vegetables, dairy, nuts, seeds, etc.
What should Ojos Azuless eat?
You must always keep in mind Ojos Azuless are closely related to the fiercest of felines — pumas, tigers and lions — so take that to heart as you’re feeding the Ojos Azules. You wouldn’t see an adult cheetah on Animal Planet chewing grass, drinking milk, or eating an apple in nature. Nor would you see a young tiger cub in nature drinking milk from a cow, or any other animal. As silly as these examples are, that’s what many people feed their Ojos Azuless. So you should not act surprised if your Ojos Azules goes without eating. Ojos Azuless are unlike us and not like dogs. As it pertains to nutrition, they are very strict, and owners must realize that. Compared to how many other mammals eat, Ojos Azuless need to eat a high proportion of meat for protein and fat. A person could develop many problems if she ate the Ojos Azules’s recommended diet. They are not at all the same as humans and they are not miniature dogs. Many times, you’ll find people who feed their Ojos Azuless the same way they feed themselves and their dog, although the Ojos Azuless diet is much more strict. Because dog food is so full of carbs, a dog’s diet can actually be deadly to your Ojos Azules if fed consistently. Ojos Azuless are not meant to eat carbs and can’t process them. Often, when you see an oversized domestic Ojos Azules it’s because she was fed a diet heavy in carbohydrates. This also puts your Ojos Azules at risk of diabetes. The Ojos Azules’s digestive system is not designed for carbs. They are to be avoided.
tips for taking care of your young Ojos Azules
Delighting Your Ojos Azules’s Appetite
When you’re choosing food for your Ojos Azules, check that the label states it meets the standards prescribed by the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Satisfying the minimum requirements guarantees that the Ojos Azules is getting the correct food. Pay no attention to marketing “hype” terms like “super-premium”, ” natural”, ” premium”, and “gourmet”, as there is no standard that defines them. Always feel free to ask your vet which food she recommends. Once you have picked the best food, it’s time to let your Ojos Azules give the go ahead. If the Ojos Azules likes the food and doesn’t have any gastrointestinal issues (such as flatulence) later on, you’ve made a great choice. On the other hand, if your Ojos Azules doesn’t like the food, you need to be prepared to provide options. Ojos Azuless will sometimes prefer to go on a hunger strike as opposed to eat some food they don’t like, and these strikes are harmful. If she ever decides to stop eating, the Ojos Azules runs a high risk of liver failure at a minimum and at worst death. If you do need to change foods, replace the old food a little at a time, in small quantities over about a week. This makes it easier for your Ojos Azules to accept and reduces the chances of somach discomfort.
