Nutrition is Key

As in people, balanced nutrition is key to good health and longevity. Not all pet foods are created equal, especially when it comes to the quality and quantity of ingredients or fillers. As caretakers we need to know that the food we are feeding meets or exceeds minimum AAFCOguidelines. It is important to realize that there are tremendous differences among dogs, cats, and other species. The AAFCO guidelines help explain the nutritional requirements of a balanced diet for each respective species.

Make sure you look for the “AAFCO Approved” logo when purchasing your pet’s food. This will ensure that you are providing them with a nutritionally sound diet. Should you need help selecting an AAFCO approved diet, a member of our health care team will gladly provide you with some guidance. Give us a call or stop by, we would love to help!
