Chocolate, raisins, and xylitol are very toxic for dogs.

The safest almond milk for your dog is organic and homemade.

How much almond milk can my dog drink?

Almond milk in excess can induce gastrointestinal problems such as colic, vomiting, and diarrhea.

For this reason, you shouldn’t let your dog drink a lot of almond milk at once.

My advice is:

If you’re planning to offer your dog almond milk you should introduce it into your dog’s diet gradually by offering it in small amounts.

If your dog likes almond’s milk taste and once it has been introduced safely into his diet, you can offer your dog one or two glasses at a time.

Remember to be always monitoring for any adverse reaction to almond milk during the first times you offer it to your dog.

Why was the Dog Food Selector created?

Each dog has unique needs... The approach "one food for all dogs" isn't the more suitable. Dogs have different sizes, different life stages, unique breed characteristics, health conditions and a few other factors... Choosing the right food for your dog may help him or her life a longer and healthier life! We exist to make that task easier for you.

How does the Dog Food Selector work?

It's quite simple... It's a 1-2 step process. You just have to fill in the form with your dog's characteristics, like gender, age, size, activity, health conditions and a few other important data and click "search". Then, you'll see a list of dog foods with the highest review score. If you wish you can see all the detailed review of each individual dog food.
