Choosing the right diet for your pet

Finding the right diet for your pet can be a daunting experience, especially when you are looking at all the different types of food. Choosing the right food can be easier than you think.

The first thing to think about is whether your pet has any special dietary requirements, such as kidney or liver issues, allergies, weight loss, low fat requirements or urinary issues.

There are specific diets to help with these issues and they should be discussed with a vet or nurse to help you decide what is the ideal diet for your pet.

If your pet has no special requirements, a maintenance diet or dental diet is the best way to go.

The maintenance diets are specially formulated for pets of specific ages and sizes to ensure that they receive the optimum nutrition to keep them healthy.

The dental diet helps to keep your pet’s teeth healthy and clean. The biscuits are larger in size to promote chewing and therefore brushing of the teeth and also help to prevent plaque and tartar from building up on the teeth.
