We’re all guilty when it comes to treating our pets to leftovers. But just as snacking on the wrong foods can cause you to put on a little weight, it can have the same effect on your pet too.
You know the dangers of putting on weight – lower self-esteem, less motivation to exercise and in some cases, risk of harmful health conditions such as diabetes. Well, all of these apply to your companion too, which is why it’s so important that you’re monitoring their calorie intake.
With so many pre-packed diets available today you may be a little overwhelmed when it comes to choosing your pet’s food. Additionally, you don’t want to feed your companion a diet that contains more energy than they’re burning. So why not speak with a member of our friendly team about your pet’s diet?
Our vets and nurses have a wealth of experience when it comes to animal diets. They will take a number of factors into consideration including your pet’s breed, sex, age, neuter status and how frequently they exercise. They will then be able to advise you about the diet best suited to your pet’s individual needs.
