What is the best type of food for pets?
When it comes to nutrition, every pet has different needs. It is important that before buying any type of food for your pet, that you consult you veterinarian so he can advise you in the correct diet plan for your companion. This is why nutrition counselling is useful. It provides you with the right recommendations that are specific to your pet and its lifestyle. We do suggest that you take a watchful look at the list of ingredients. Healthy foods should include ingredients like protein, minerals, vitamins, fat and carbohydrates.

Do puppies and kittens need special food?
Absolutely! Like us, kittens and puppies need special foods to make sure their development and growth are well supported. For example, larger breeds of dogs will need a very specific diet due to their rapid growth and their more prevalent tendency of developing bone problems.
Do senior dogs and cats need special food?
Definitely! Pets who reach a certain age have higher risks of developing multiple types of conditions and diseases that require a unique treatment plan. Nutrition plays a big part in their general health, especially at their golden age. For example, pets that suffer heart disease may need to take foods that have lower levels of sodium.
