Feeding the Shih Tzu

The Dish
Among the most important equipment you will need are your dog’s food and water dishes. When choosing these dishes keep in mind that a Shih Tzu is a small breed whose head, when standing, is barely inches above the ground. Pick dishes which are not more than 3 inches deep. If you are feeding a puppy, you will have to use a very shallow bowl or even a plate. The idea is, simply, to select feeding dishes that will allow your pet free access to its food and water. In addition, the dishes that you chose should be made in such a shape as to prevent tipping.

The Food
Just because you decide to use a commercial dog food, it does not mean that you love your dog less than someone who prepares their dog's meals from scratch. Commercial foods offer many advantages, the most obvious being ease of preparation. Perhaps, the most important advantage is that a top-quality, well-balanced commercial diet can supply your Shih Tzu with 100% of its nutritional and energy needs. The advice of your breeder and veterinarian can be invaluable in choosing the best commercial foods for your Shih Tzu.
