Pekingese dogs have specific nutritional needs. While choosing your dog's diet, you must keep in mind its origin. The origin of this breed of dog lies in ancient China.

You can give your dog the best nutrition if you feed it with the diet to which its breed is used to rather than compelling your dog to adapt to a diet to which its system is unfamiliar. Pekingese are much more food sensitive when compared to other breeds of dogs and therefore it should be fed with correct food in correct proportion.
