Feed Your Pet a High-Quality Food
You may be tempted to purchase the least expensive food to save money, but this could cost you big time in the end with vet bills and medical treatments. Low-quality food not only isn’t healthy for your dog but it can lead to obesity. You want to find a pet food that has meat listed as the first ingredient, and you want to avoid any food that has corn or other types of fillers that leave your dog feeling hungry and can contribute to overeating. You don’t necessarily have to purchase the most expensive food at the pet store, but you do want to find a reputable brand that used high-quality ingredients including meats and vegetables. If you’re not sure of what to purchase or your pet has specific dietary requirements, consult with your vet. Your vet likely will be able to recommend a few brands that work best for your pet and can offer you tips on how to change your pet’s food.
