Homemade food or commercially bought food? Plant protein or meat protein? Which supplements to add to your pet’s diet? These and many more questions pose a challenge to most pet parents. Our veterinarians and specialists at Fraser Valley Animal Hospital can help answer all your questions regarding your pet’s nutrition.
What supplements are necessary for the everyday diet of dogs and cats?
While we recommend including Omega 3 fatty acids in your pet’s diet, especially for senior cats, the best advice would be to consult the veterinarian or veterinary nutritionist to suggest supplements specific to your pet’s needs. To know more specific details, call us at 604-854-2313 to book your appointment.
How to select the right food for my pet?
The most important thing to look for is nutritional value information in the food you buy. Things to consider include how much protein is gained through one serving. A plant-based protein source can sometimes provide more protein than a low-quality meat product. We can help you learn how to make your purchasing decisions based on nutritional value.
Can I feed home-cooked meals to my dog?
While you can choose to provide home-cooked meals to your loyal companion, we recommend that you consult your veterinarian to understand your dog’s needs and how you can fulfill them at home. To ensure your pet’s safety, you can also inquire about what human foods to avoid.
