Feeding your beloved pet can be a bit of a guessing game in the beginning. You may not be sure how much to feed them or what to feed them. If you are a new fur parent, keep reading because we have some answers for you. If you follow our simple tips, you will take the guessing out of feeding your fur family.
1. Good Quality Food
The good quality food may at times be pricier than others but it costs more because it is healthier. Not all of the less costly brands are bad for pets, but you should do some research. It is a good idea to ask your vet what type of food they suggest.
2. Age of Pet
The age of your pet will determine the type of food as well. You don’t want to feed your mature cat or dog food made for kittens and puppies. The ingredients and protein content is different for different ages. As your pet ages, their nutritional needs change as well. You should keep this in mind when deciding on a type of food.
3. Activity Levels
The amount and type of food will be determined by the activity level of your cat or dog. Age plays a role here again. Younger pets are more active. There are also certain breeds that are naturally more active and need more exercise. These breeds will need food that gives them lots of protein and energy and fulfils all their specific nutritional needs.
If you are unsure about what and how much to feed your pets, ask your vet. He or she will be able to give you good advice. It is very important to take into account your individual pets because they are not the same and probably don’t have the exact same needs.
