Nutrition Within Your Pet
If you are wondering what food is best for your pet, the answer would be that it depends what kind of pet you have. As animals get older their lifestyle changes, meaning that they do not always require the same types of food. A pets diet may change and you will need to provide them with what they need in order to keep them healthy.
Seeing as our pets cannot talk to us and tell us how they are feeling, how do we know if we are feeding them healthy food or not? You can always tell if a pet is eating the correct foods by the following attributes:
- A well muscled body
- A strong immune system
- Happy and enjoying their life
- Lots of energy
- No unusual smell
- A soft, shiny and healthy coat that does not mat or knot easily
So if you see these signs in your pet, you seem to be doing a good job in keeping their nutrition in check.
If your animal experiences any of the following symptoms then there is a chance that they are not eating correctly:
- An unusual smell
- Little or no energy at all
- Thin looking appearance
- Gets infections easily
- A coat that looks greasy, dirty and may have dandruff
If you have noticed any of the above it would be advisable to take them to the vet to get them checked over.
Dogs need healthy food, just like humans do. Also, try to give them the health in different forms, donít always give them the same food. Imagine if you had to eat the same food every day for the rest of your life. Dogs deserve a treat every now and then too. This might sound gross to humans, but a dog really enjoys a pigís ear! It is not expensive and will keep your dog busy for days! It is healthy, it exercises the jaw and keeps the teeth and gums healthy.
