I have a Yellow Labrador who recently had stone removal surgery. After the surgery he is very weak. We give him vegetarian diet. Is it sufficient?


What you have to remember is that the diet you feed your dog should be complete and balanced. This means that the balanced diet will meet all his required nutrients and energy demand, regardless of his life stage or life style. Home-made diets depending on the sources vary with respect to quality, digestibility and nutrient content, which is why it is difficult to make balanced and complete food at home (without consulting nutritionist). Most reputed commercial pet food items meet the pet’s nutritional requirements. Dogs following surgery may require special diet for faster recovery and healing. Your vet may recommend commercial recovery diets or suggest right homemade diet.
