As the adage goes, “you are what you eat.” This is as true for pets as it is for humans. A properly balanced diet with quality ingredients that is appropriate for your pets’ life stage can contribute significantly to his/her good health. Pre-prepared commercial diets are commonly used and are in general a very good option. Home cooked (and we emphasize the word ‘cooked’) diets are becoming more popular and can also be a very good option as long as they are nutritionally balanced (pets are not people in this regard).
It is worth emphasizing that the information available on the web concerning pet nutrition ranges from excellent to downright dangerous. It is important to look at the source of the information before relying on it. Better yet, give us a call and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.
