Nutrition & Feeding
Good nutrition is essential for a healthy pet. Nutrients in pet foods should provide what is needed for metabolic body processes and should help fight off disease.
Proper feeding habits with nutritious food on a regular schedule can prevent:
• Nutritional deficiencies
• Irritation or malfunction of the digestive system
Improper feeding habits can cause or contribute to:
• Dental disease
• Heart disease
• Liver disease
• Inflammation and/or bleeding in the intestines
Many animals die each year from such diseases. Avoid table scraps and high fat foods. Your pets should be offered foods developed for them or recommended by your veterinarian.
Provide Plenty of Clean Water
All animals are susceptible to dehydration and kidney disease if deprived of water, quickly leading to serious complications. Nutritious food and clean, fresh water are important to your pet's health!
