Helping you choose the best foods for your pet's dietary needs.
In a pet's diet, when it comes to determining nutrients, excess is as harmful as deficiency. Determining what and how much of each nutrient is required in your pet's diet can be difficult. When you are unsure of what nutrients and in what ratio are to be included in your pet's diet, you can consult our veterinarians. Our veterinarians can help you determine the ideal diet for your loyal companion based on factors such as breed, lifestyle, and health concerns. For your next appointment, call us at 519-683-4508.
Your pet's diet should include five nutrients: proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and vitamins. The first three, in the right amount, provide the energy your pet requires. Minerals and vitamins are for physical development and maintenance.
Proteins are one of the main macronutrients in a pet's diet. Dogs and cats need lots of protein as they are a significant source of energy. It also helps with gestation, growth, and healing. Proteins help build muscle mass, support healthy development and growth, produce vital enzymes and build strong immunity.
Excess of a nutrient can be harmful to your pet's health. To determine how much fat should be included in your pet's daily intake, you should speak with your veterinarian, who can determine the exact amount of fat your pet might need depending on various factors.
