Picking The Right Pet Food

by PetFirst Pet Insurance

No two dogs or cats are the same, so there’s no such thing as an ideal canine or feline diet. Consider these characteristics about your dog or cat when choosing their diet: activity level, age and any recent physiological changes (growing, pregnant or nursing pet will usually require specialized diets).

There are two main factors of a proper pet diet:

1. Nutrition. Your pet needs food that has quality ingredients at the right proportions. Pick a high-quality food that is rich in nutrients, including energy, protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and water. Keep in mind both nutrient deficiencies and excess can cause problems.

2. A brand you can trust. The packaging should always have a phone number and/or website, so you can call the company and ask questions if necessary. All of the major pet food brands invest heavily in research to ensure their foods are safe and healthy for your pet.
