Guidelines to Pet Nutrition

Bookmark and Share
Try to avoid foods with corn meal, wheat, gluten, dyes or chicken/beef by-products as they are hard to digest, have less nutrition and create more poop. Corn meal and gluten are forms of concentrated protein that are less digestible than protein from meat. Wheat is added to keep foods affordable, something not found in higher quality foods. Chicken/beef by-products are not acceptable for human consumption, giving less reason to feed to our beloved pets.

All-natural treats like Simply Wild Natural Dog Treats or Sojos Grain Free Dog Treats are made grain-free with no wheat, corn, soy or anything artificial.

Look for foods with lamb and venison; if you don't want grain-free, look for whole grains like oatmeal, brown rice and barley. Foods like Solid Gold Hund N Flocken Dog Food and Solid Gold Katz N Flocken Cat Food contain lamb, brown rice and barley.
Mixing dry and wet dog foods prevents dogs from
becoming more thirsty than usual. For example, you can
mix the Blue Buffalo Canned Lamb & Rice Dinner with the Blue Buffalo Lamb & Brown Rice Recipe.

Feeding higher quality pet foods reduces like
the likelihood of your pet visiting the veterinarian.

Your pet should be well-hydrated; make sure they have an ample water supply. The PetMate Le Bistro with Microban Waterer or Aqua Buddy Automatic Waterer Pet Bowl is an easy to use product for keeping a pet's thirst quenched.
Microbials can help improve pet digestion; Probios Digestion Support Dog Treats and Rapid-Care G.I. For Dogs & Cats
are excellent probiotic products to choose from.

Highly recommended food brands include
Blue Buffalo and Solid Gold.

Regulate how fast your pet eats with products like the Brake Fast Food Bowl or Contech EatBetter Food Bowl. Eating slower can prevent digestive problems like overeating, indigestion, vomiting and GDV (gastric dilatation volvulus).
Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids are giving pets improved health by supporting healthy hearts, joints, coats and skin with
products like Grizzly Salmon Fillet Treats For Dogs & Cats
or Salmon Treats For Cats.

Homemade foods give you the power to control and know everything that goes inside your pet's stomach. Our feature
on 5 Delicious Thanksgiving Pet Recipes is a nice way
to prepare something made from your heart.
