Ever heard the expression that “you are what you eat”? Well the same is true for our pets. A nutrition-rich diet is your pet’s first line of defense and a cornerstone of preventive care. Proper daily nutrition will go a long way in keeping your pet healthy by bolstering the immune system, preventing some health conditions, and supporting normal development in younger animals.
Every pet’s nutritional needs are different, based on age, breed, health conditions and lifestyle factors—which can make choosing the right pet food complicated. For example, larger breed dogs have different nutritional needs than smaller breeds, and puppies and kittens should eat much differently than most adult dogs.
At Countryside Animal Clinic, our veterinarians and staff can take the guesswork out of feeding your pets by advising you about what’s right for your animal. Have questions or concerns about what your pet is eating? Make an appointment online or give us a call at (352) 746-7171.
