Supports their development and keeps their body in good health
No bones about it—you love your pet! And you want to make sure their organs and other body systems continue to function properly as they grow and mature. A good way to do that is to feed them a balanced diet that meets all their nutritional needs.
Their cat or dog food should be chock-full of proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, micronutrients, and minerals in the right quantities. It should also be targeted to their life stage, health issues, and indoor or outdoor lifestyle. These nutrients play a critical role in your pet’s body by:
- Providing energy
- Helping build tissue
- Contributing to proper organ function
- Supporting development (for kittens and puppies)
And it’s important to make sure they’re getting the right amount of each nutrient. In some cases, too much or too little could be harmful to your precious pet’s health.
But how do you make sure they’re getting what they need? Why not ask your veterinary team? They’re the experts! Your vet can give you advice on choosing the best cat or dog food for your pet.
