Diets for Good Pet Health
When it comes to great health for your pet, a balanced diet that is highly nutritious is vital for keeping your pet healthy. If you are looking for help in ensuring your pet has a proper diet, and you are seeking veterinary care, we can take care of your pet here at Trilby Animal Hospital in Toledo. Animals need a variety of carbs, protein, and fats, as well as vitamins and minerals, to function normally. This is no different than what humans needs.
There are foods that are created for certain stages of an animal's life, while there are others that are particularly for animals with kidney disease, heart disease, and other health conditions.
Muscle Tone/Body Condition
When it comes to animal health it is important to make sure that your pet is getting the right amount of protein necessary to repair and cells that have been damaged and help with the creation of new ones. It is important for animals that are young and or pregnant to get enough protein for strong muscles.
Skin/ Hair Health
Animal health also consists of healthy skin and hair coats. Hair coats that are shiny are more than likely a good indicator of great health. Pets need to also make sure that they are eating properly balanced foods that give them omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. Foods that contain these have great anti-inflammatory effects when it comes to decreasing itching and other allergy-related conditions.
Getting the right amount of carbohydrates is also important for a proper diet. Carbs provide fiber which helps with digestion as well as elimination. There are certain foods available that are available that target your pet's digestive system that contain the necessary nutrients.
There are also vitamins and minerals that are vital for your pet to have to keep their immune system working properly. Vitamins are great for cells that have been damaged. Without the necessary vitamins and minerals, your pet will become ill eventually.
