We may treat our pets like family, however it’s important to feed them based on their biological needs. To learn more, we asked our resident veterinarian Dr. Abby Huggins about plant based diets and our pets...
One of the greatest gifts of pet ownership is the privilege of watching your 4-legged pal enter their senior years. As your beloved friend ages, their nutritional needs will change as well, necessitating adjustment in both the amount and the formulation of their diet.
Among the many decisions you will encounter during your pet’s life, what you feed your fur-baby is hands-down one of the most important. Your puppy’s nutritional needs are just as special as they are! Starting them off on the right foot (err, paw) with a high-quality diet will help their body and brain grow to its best potential.
An ideal kitten diet should offer high-quality and high-proportion animal meat proteins, healthy fats, appropriate fiber content, and supply the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids essential for complete and balanced nutrition.
While pets are not little people in fur coats, dogs and cats are physiologically very similar to humans and can succumb to most of the same illnesses and disease processes that we do. One such condition is allergies, which account for a large proportion of visits to the veterinarian.
