With all pets, there are certain foods that should be avoided at all costs. Some of them include chocolate, raisins, grapes, garlic and
onions. These foods are dangerous to most animals due to toxins that cause organ failure.
Younger animals are still in the early stages of development and need more nutrient-dense foods. Ask one of our knowledgeable veterinarians which foods we recommend for your pet's stage of life.
The amount and type of food your adult pet eats should be based on his or her lifestyle. If your dog has a healthy weight and loves to go for long walks, he will have a higher calorie diet than a lap dog who prefers to sleep the day away. Speak with a pet nutritionist to determine the right food for your animal's lifestyle.
As animals age, they become less active and therefore need fewer calories than they used to. Senior pets may also become more sensitive to fat and need more fiber as they get older. Some may continue to eat the same but in smaller portions to compensate for the decline in activity.
