Proper nutrition is very important for pets to live a long and healthy life. Pet food has boomed into a multi-billion dollar industry which has many small companies developing pet food diets that may not be nutritious for many pets. It is easy for a pet owner to become overwhelmed by the available selection of pet foods, information on the internet, and recommendations from breeders or boutique store clerks.
Poor nutrition or poor dietary sources can cause many medical conditions that we see on a daily basis such as obesity, pancreatitis, kidney disease, and Diabetes Mellitus. Feeding “table food, scraps, and too many treats can also cause many medical conditions. Did you know that cat food can make dogs very sick? Many medical disorders can be treated with proper dietary nutrients.
