Nutrition

Dogs and cats are omnivores, meaning they can live healthy lives while eating a variety of food. Meats, vegetables, and grains should  be a part of their daily diet.

From puppyhood on, your pet’s diet is critical to their wellbeing.  What they eat can affect their GI tract and even prevent cancer.

Avoiding by-products and artificial preservatives is the minimal standard for good nutrition. Feeding organic foods is even better.  Because of concerns with additives in pet food, and less stringent testing, I recommend feeding home prepared food made from ingredients purchased at a grocery store.
