The Right Diet For Your Pet

In people, the right diet is very important. If you are eating the wrong way for your metabolism, activity level, age and lifestyle you could end up with health issues. The same goes for your pet, and if your cat or dog is fed an unsuitable diet, they can suffer the consequences health-wise. A balanced and high quality pet diet is incredibly important to ensure optimum health for your furry companion in all stages of their life.

There are so many different pet food brands and types on the market today that the choice may seem overwhelming. You may think they are pretty much the same and you can just feed your pet any brand, however if you take a look at the ingredients you may be surprised. Some brands have a very low meat content (around 4%) and include artificial additives and preservatives which do not contribute positively to a healthy diet for your pet.

Getting it right

Look for a brand of food that offers a balanced and healthy diet, that includes options for different ages and activity levels, as different pets have different needs. The nutritional needs of puppies or kittens are different to those of adult pets. Every optimal pet diet should conform to the needs of your pet, based on their breed, age, lifestyle and more.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition provides scientifically developed food for dogs and cats. Hill’s Science Plan works with the biology of your pet to give them exactly what they need, no matter what their age or breed size. Made with an optimised selection of ingredients and nutrients that gives pets exactly what they need at each life-stage.
