Animals just like us, need a certain combination of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water every day in order to function normally. Therefore, pet food manufacturers like Hills Pet Nutrition and Royal Canin, work hard to determine the exact formula that goes into their pet foods. This way, they can provide everything your pet needs daily.
There are specific foods designed to help with specific health conditions. For example, for puppies, geriatric pets, and pets who might have heart or kidney disease. Each nutrient in your pet food has a purpose.
Protein: Source of energy and help with muscle function and growth.
Fats: Provide energy, help the brain function, and keep the skin and coat, shiny and healthy.
Carbohydrates: Supply a source of quick energy for active and energetic pets.
Vitamins and minerals: Necessary for muscle contraction and nerve conduction. Also helps prevent disease.
These are just a few examples of important key points for providing everything your pet needs daily in their food. We have a wide range of prescription pet foods. Contact our veterinarian to see if we can help in any way find the right pet food to fit your pets needs.
