“What should I feed my pet?”

There have never been so many choices for feeding our pets. Pet food offered at pet stores, grocery stores, big box stores, and online these days differs greatly in quality and in digestibility. Opinions flow freely from store employees on what kind of food your pet should eat. But it’s important to beware of fads and trends.

For instance, some pet food companies have decided that a no-grain diet is best for your pet. But actually, grains are not bad for the majority of pets, just as they’re not bad for the majority of people. When a pet is allergic or reactive to food, it’s most often because of the meat proteins, not the grains. Other pet food companies think that raw diets are the way to go. But raw pet food can contain bacterial contaminants, which can affect your pet and you as well.

We recommend the many pet food brands that are available through veterinarians. They’re called prescription diets, because they help to diagnosis and treat diseases and conditions in pets, including food reactions. No over-the-counter pet food can do the same thing as a prescription diet.

We can make suggestions for your pet’s particular situation based on our years of experience. Please let us know if you’d like our assistance in finding the best diet for your pet, wherever you choose to buy your pet food.
