Nutritional Guidance

Proper nutrition plays a significant role in your pet's immune system, growth, and health of bone and organs. A poor diet could increase their risk of diseases and illnesses like skin allergies, bladder and kidney issues, growth abnormalities and poor muscle development.

Diet requirements will vary depending on your pet's breed, size, and age.

For a balanced diet, dogs need to have food that includes a mix of:

  • Proteins
  • Carbohydrates
  • Fats, such as omega-3 and omega-6
  • Vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, D, E, calcium and phosphorus
  • Water
