What Should I Feed My American English Coonhound? 

A little About American English Coonhounds.
Coonhounds natural drive is to hunt as they have a high prey drive and will go after small animals in the home unless trained otherwise. As puppies they can be hyper, quite inquisitive and very destructive so get them on a strick training routine quickly.  They are strong willed, can be stubborn so be patient. They love being in families with other dogs as they have a pack mentality. The males are 40–65 lbs and 22–27 inches tall where the girls are 40–65 lbs  and 21–25 inches. Their lifespan averages 11-12 years. English Coonhounds are prone for health issues such as; hip dysplasia, ear infections, progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) and polyradiculoneuritis.

How Much Should I Feed My American English Coonhound
American English Coonhounds must be fed between two to four small servings of high-quality, nutrient-dense dog food each day. Because they are vulnerable to overheating, they require extra water to avoid dehydration, particularly when hunting during the hot summer months. NEVER feed them just once a day. They require at least breakfast and dinner to keep up with their metabolism.

Basic Ingredients to Look For 
Proper nutrition nourishes the growth of the brain, muscles, bones, and vital organs. So look for antioxidant rich formulas that are grain free, all natural and holistic. Ingredients like glucosamine, calcium and phosphorus will strengthen bone, teeth and support joint health. A healthy diet contributes to a shiny coat and healthy skin, fuels energy for play and work, and boosts the immune system. Foods with fish or adding a wild alaskan salmon fish oil will visually be noticeable in improving the coat (not all fish products are the same quality. contact us below to learn which ones have the best results and are worth your money) High protein levels support endurance and muscle mass for working and playing, and the high fat produces energy your Coonhound needs for stamina. It's critical the foods first ingredient is real meat is always the first ingredient followed by a variety of healthy fresh fruits and vegetables.  You NEVER want a food that has corn, wheat, soy, added sugars, sweeteners, artificial flavors, by-products and other cheap fillers.

What Brand of Food is the Best 
Diet and nutrition is probably one of the most important decisions you will make for your pet because it affects their long-term health, immune system, vital organs, condition of their teeth, coat and even affects their lifespan so educate yourself and choose the brand of food for your pet wisely.
