Which Food is Best for Your Pet?

You may have certain dietary requirements, like lactose intolerance or gluten sensitivity, but have you ever thought about your pet’s dietary needs? Your pet may suffer from allergies, sensitivities, and illnesses that require special foods to accommodate their needs. Your pet’s diet plays an important role in their overall health and wellness, so it’s important to make sure they’re getting the right nutrition. But what is the “right” diet for your pet?

What are your pet’s individual needs?

You’ll need to consider your pet’s breed, age, activity level and any health conditions they may have – all of which can influence their nutritional requirements. An adult German shepherd will need a different diet than a senior Chihuahua, for example. Your veterinarian can help you determine the best diet for your pet based on their individual needs and lifestyle. Keep in mind that your pet’s nutritional needs may change as they get older or become diagnosed with different health conditions, so it’s important to continue discussing your pet’s diet with your veterinarian at their annual checkups. 

Which foods are safe for your pet?

While some people may choose to feed their pets a homemade diet, it’s important to ensure the diet is balanced and contains all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Always speak with your veterinarian before feeding your pet a homemade or raw diet–this will ensure your pet is getting all the nutrients they need.

It’s also important to make sure that any human food you give your pet is safe for them. This includes table scraps and treats – some foods for humans can be toxic or harmful to pets, so always double check with your veterinarian before feeding your pet anything new.
