10 Dec The Delicacy of Pet Health, and Food!
The Delicacy of Pet Health, and Food!
Brief meetings with your Veterinarian for checkups or vaccines, etc. normally do not provide enough time for you to learn everything required for your pet to maintain optimal health – namely with regards to pet diet. At all ages and stages, cats and dogs have specific dietary needs. Unfortunately 'regular' pet diets, with day-in-and-day-out the same exact food being provided, lack all nutrition required by your cat or dog. Supplements are popular to customize and personalize your pet's diet by rounding out the nutrients needed for pets of all ages and health conditions.
For instance, a kitten requires colostrum in their diet for the first few days of their life to ensure proper immune and growth health and nursing for eleven weeks from birth is better for their long-term health than sustaining them purely on milk supplements. Another important health tidbit is that if your pet is experiencing pain when walking as related to joint health, glucosamine is a pet supplement that you want to consider discussing with your veterinarian. Supplements are also given as a preventative measure, to stave off pet health issues linked to nutrients often lacking from the 'regular', day-to-day pet food diet. With regular, daily pet diets often times the nutrients necessary to maintain pet vitality are absent. Even providing the highest-quality pet food however still may not provide a nutrient density required by your specific pet's situation. There is a lot to learn when rearing puppies, kittens or caring for these furry friends into old age. Preventative pet care knowledge can save the pet owner from future financial and emotional strain.
