WHY DO I NEED TO FEED MY DOG SUCH A CAREFULLY DESIGNED DIET?

WHY DO I NEED TO FEED MY DOG SUCH A CAREFULLY DESIGNED DIET?

It is important for owners to be informed when it comes to their best friend’s nutrition.  It’s not enough to guess at our pet’s requirements and simply providing a range of foods will not meet your pet’s needs.

When we feed ourselves we do not eat a balanced meal every time.  If we have cereal for breakfast this does not contain everything we need.  If we have a sandwich for lunch this does not contain everything we need.  If we have pasta for dinner this does not contain everything we need.  Hopefully all these meals added together through the day mean we get all the nutrients we need.

If however we have a few days of unbalanced meals, we naturally crave those missing nutrients.  If I have a weekend of beer and take away food then come Monday I’m, off to the supermarket to buy some fruit and vegetables.  Our pets don’t have this option and can’t tell us that something is missing from their diet.

The nutrients that are needed to keep a dog healthy include basic protein, energy, vitamin and mineral requirement (eg zinc, copper).  In the long term if these nutrients go below or above the required levels this can result in an imbalance and can lead from anything to mild illness to death.

Vetlicious makes home cooked pet food easy and affordable and gives you the peace of mind that your pet is getting a completed, balanced diet.
