Be Sure Your Pets Receive the Nutrition They Need

All pet parents want what is best for our beloved feline and canine companions. Since our fur-babies are at our mercy when it comes to their health and well-being, we have to make sure we are meeting their nutritional needs. As far as pet food is concerned, you have plenty of options to choose from. Whether your dog or cat prefers dry or canned food, your priority as a pet owner is to give your furry companion the nutrition he or she needs to live a long, happy and healthy life. 

  • Look for AAFCO Guidelines

    Pet food should have a nutritional adequacy claim on its packaging that tells you the food is either “formulated to meet or exceed the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO nutritional profiles” or ” animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that the pet food provides complete and balanced nutrition” for the life stage of your animal. An extra layer of protection is found in pet food brands that have been through AAFCO feeding trials. Further, food that is labeled for intermittent or supplemental use should not be used long-term unless directed by a veterinarian.

  • Choosing the Right Food for Your Pet

    Our pet’s nutritional needs vary depending on age, size, species and health conditions. Older pets need to eat different food than younger pets, less-active pets need different food than active pets, small-breed animals require nutritional content different from large-breed animals, and the list goes on. You don’t want to buy dog or cat food that isn’t formulated to meet your companion’s specific dietary needs.

  • Read the Labels Carefully

    Pet food labels provide valuable insight into the quality of the food. When selecting a nutritious pet food for your trusty companion, pay close attention to the nutritional adequacy statement, listing of ingredients, feeding directions and guaranteed analysis.
