Dog Food for a Healthy Diet

Finding the nourishing food to help your pet maintain a healthy diet can be challenging. There are several things to pay attention to when buying dog food. For starters, dry and wet dog food contains all the nutrients most dogs need. If you suspect your dog isn't receiving enough nutrients from their food, we recommend consultation with our vets, as we can guide you on how to best supplement your pet's diet. It's also important to remember that some foods will provide more nutrition than others, so it is essential check the ingredient list. The best foods for your dog will have a healthy balance of meats, grains, and vegetables.

Cat Food Recommended by our Veterinarians

Cats can be sometimes be picky eaters, however, it is still important to provide them with a healthy diet. When buying cat food, it is important to remember that cats are obligate carnivores. Foods that are heavy in grains or vegetables might contain empty calories your feline doesn't need. While dry cat foods are not necessarily unhealthy, they are heavier in calories, so it is important to keep this in mind when selecting your cat’s diet.
