Just like you, your pet depends on good nutrition to stay healthy and fit. The choices you make when it comes to pet food really matter.
"Dogs and cats have to meet their mineral and vitamin requirements as well as their energy requirements," says Dr. Joseph Wakshlag, professor in the clinical science department at Cornell University Veterinary College, told Yahoo Life. "What you eat is important to your health."
Proper diet "plays an important role in treating a wide variety of diseases," says Dr. Valerie Parker, associate professor of internal medicine and small animal nutrition at Ohio State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, told Yahoo Life. "Complete and balanced diet" are important.
How do you do the right picks? Take into account your pet's weight and daily caloric needs, as well as their stage of life. Parker says it's also wise to buy from a brand that is open to ingredients and employs a full-time, skilled nutritionist.
