Picture this… sizes from Chihuahuas to Mastiffs, energy levels from Border Collies to French Bulldogs, endurance levels from Great Danes to German Shepherds, and hair types from Shih Tzu’s to Boston Terriers. You can easily see all the many different types of dogs and how each breed has different physiological needs. No two pets are alike. Different diets address size, lifestyle and breed made for each dog’s unique characteristics.
Now that we have determined that all dogs are not one size fits all let’s discuss the importance of nutrition. Pet food goes beyond a price tag… what your pet eats greatly affects their overall health. From puppyhood, to adults, and all the way to maturing dogs they all require different nutrients at each life stage. Each food is designed with a specific purpose and it’s extremely important to know what is going in your pet’s food. Different foods use different quality ingredients and we recommend what we know and trust.
There are even foods designed specifically to help pets with certain health issues such as Calming Support, Cardiac Health, Dental Health, Diabetes Support, Digestive Support, Illness and Surgery Recovery Support, Joint Support, Liver Health, Renal Support, Skin & Food Allergies, Urinary Health, and Weight Management.
It is important to not self diagnose your pet with certain health issues, and certainly do not make calls whether they need vegetarian or grain free diets. Please call and make an appointment with us to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs.
It is important to ensure your pets is receiving a complete and balanced diet. We want your pets to live a long, happy, and quality life. We believe this starts with their daily nutrition.
