Benefits of Feeding Your Pet Natural Food

A proper diet is a crucial element of health and wellbeing. Regular meals supply energy that restocks the body, promotes healing, and provides strength required to fight disease and the aging process.

Nowadays there is a wide range of commercial pet food available in the market, including dry kibbles, tin food, sausage, fresh meals, raw meat, and BARF. Amongst all these options, it can be overwhelming to decide what is best for your pet.

In addition, if your pet has a chronic condition, such as skin allergies, urinary problems, recurrent skin infections, kidney failure or cardiac disease, diet plays an important role in the treatment plan. When used appropriately, special ingredients can reduce the dose of medicine required, prevent reoccurrences, and prolong life.

No animal by-products/nasties

Many brands use animal by-products (such as chicken by-product meal), fillers (such as corn), preservatives, artificial flavours, and additives that can cause allergies and are not healthy. It doesn’t sound appetizing to you, why it will be good to your fur baby? Take time to research the ingredients that go into your pet’s food.

More water

All homecooked/ raw foods have at least 70% water content. It means that it will be much easier for your pet to digest his/her food and will help him/her to have a healthier urinary tract.

More appetising

Natural food is more attractive to our pets because it is less processed, so it maintains the smell and flavour of the ingredients.

Shiny coat

When you feed your pet high-quality animal protein, combined with minerals and omegas 3 and 6, it helps to reduce hair loss as well as encourage a softer and more resistant coat.

Quality of life and longevity

By feeding natural food you can help ensure your pet lives a long, happy, and healthy life. Choose a food with quality, all-natural ingredients to ensure your pet stays healthy and happy for years to come.

Every pet is special in their own way and it is essential to know the difference amongst species and individuals.

My Kind of Vet can design a diet plan tailored to your pet’s age, lifestyle, behaviour, and medical concerns. We also discuss your preferences and time available to prepare meals, availability of ingredients, and affordability.
