Dog Nutrition and Diets
Dog nutrition is very important for general health. However, the plethora of dietary options, brands, and formulas available to consumers can be confusing, when deciding which kind of dog food is best for your dog friend’s health and wellness.
At our hospitals, we are obsessed with nutrition and take pride in providing our patients and their human caretakers with all the information necessary to help dog owners make educated decisions about all facets of dog nutrition, dog foods included. This is also why we have access to certified veterinary nutritionists at our practice.
The overall balance of a dog’s diet is affected not only by the levels of individual ingredients, but each individual mineral and also by the interactions between them. For this reason, we recommend consulting a veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist when choosing dog food, or dog food supplementation and steering clear of the internet and the plethora of confusing and often contradictory information.
