IS NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING RIGHT FOR MY PET?
Nutritional counseling can benefit all pets. Just like humans, pets also have specific, unique needs that can even change with time as they grow. Pet food recommendations can be too general and not all food will fit them all, not even expensive, fancy food!
There are plenty of aspects that come into play when picking the right food for your pet, and not taking them into account could potentially impact their health in a negative way.
WHY WOULD MY PET NEED A SPECIAL DIET?
- Their Age – Puppies And Kittens Have Different Nutritional Needs From Adult Or Senior Pets
- They Are Pregnant Or Currently Nursing
- Their Size – Bigger Animals Need The Right Portions!
- Breed – Even Pets Of The Same Age And Size Will Need Different Diets According To Their Breed
- Allergies – Your Furbaby Could Be Allergic To Ingredients On Cheaper Dry Food
- Picky Eaters – Dogs And Cats Can Have Taste Preferences That Will Make Them Refuse Certain Foods
- A Sensitive Stomach
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TAKING MY PET FOR NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING?
Many people have the misconception that healthy food for pets is expensive, but in fact, keeping your pet on a nutritious and healthy diet will reduce the number of pet visits you’ll need to do over the years, and if you’re overfeeding them, you will also be saving money by correcting their diet to the right amount of food they need to be happy and healthy.
Nutritional counseling can also help your pet live a longer and healthier life. The right quality and quantity of food can make a world of difference. Consuming bad quality food or overfeeding your pets can lead to weight gain, as well as chronic health issues like diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and organ failure. Since we know a diet of poor-quality food can affect your pet’s body in many negative ways, we can also say the opposite for finding the right diet for them. The perfect food for your pet will do nothing but wonders!
