Why You Should Get Your Pet’s Food Through Your Vet

Many of the pet foods available on the market hold little nutritional value at best. Some foods can even be harmful, especially if your pet has an underlying condition. Only through your veterinarian can you find the diet that will suit your pet’s needs best. Furthermore, the foods we offer and recommend to our clients have been rigorously tested and are formulated to give pets the nutrients they require to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Don’t Let Your Pet Develop Bad Eating Habits

It’s hard to say no to your pet when they give you “the look,” but too many treats and table scraps can turn them into a persistent beggar and worse, cause them to gain weight. Always consult with your veterinarian to find out how much your pet should be eating and how often. Deviating from their recommendations could lead to over-feeding!

 Keep these tips fresh in your mind each day until they become second nature:

  • Use treats sparingly--do not give them out throughout the day
  • Do not hand out table scraps to your pet; they should only be eating their own food.
  • If possible, train your pet to stay away from the dinner table, or out of the kitchen entirely.
  • Give your pet their meals at the same time every day.
  • Measure out the recommended amount for each meal to avoid over-feeding your pet.
  • If you have a cat, don’t fill their bowl every time it’s empty or leave food sitting out all day.
