As part of the Hill’s® Science Diet® “Healthier Pets. Happier Lives.” campaign, I’m sharing tips to help you keep your pets happy and healthy. Today’s topic, as you might have already guessed, is the importance of proper nutrition.
Good health starts with the right diet, and this isn’t just true for people! Pets need proper nutrition to live healthy and happy lives.
With so many products on the market it can be hard to know if you have made the right choice. Luckily there is a lot of information to help pet parents make good choices when it comes to what to feed your pet. You can even take this quiz: Is my pet eating quality food? And as always, the best source of information is your veterinarian!
Dr. Ashley Gallagher, vet at the Friendship Hospital for Animals in Washington D.C., explains three easy ways to keep your pet healthy and happy:
When you have made the decision to switch your dog or cat’s food to something healthier for them, be sure to transition your pet’s food gradually to avoid stomach upsets. Hill’s has some helpful guidelines for transitioning your dogs or cat’s diet.
They also have many varieties of food for different nutritional needs. We feed our Maltese Baby adult formula in her favorite flavor, chicken. Even though she is considered a senior, our vet recommended that we keep her eating adult food instead because she has a hard time gaining weight. She is also a finicky eater, luckily we got great tips from the Hill’s website on how to help her overcome that!
We all love our pets and want what is best for them, and making sure they have the nutritional support they need is just one of many ways we help our pets be healthy and happy!
