Pets and Diet

Most people feed their pets dry or canned food. These foods might seem a bit bland but pets often do better on more ‘boring’ and restricted diets. Choosing the right brands ensures your pet gets all of the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

Choosing the Best Dog Food

Different pets have different habits, personalities and preferences. This applies to food as well. Not only is food important for the health of your pet but also to his wellbeing. Our dietary advice will take your pets preferences in to account as well to ensure he enjoys his meals as well as gets all the nutrients he needs.

Common Foods to Avoid

  • Artificial sweetener
  • Raisins, grapes, sultanas & currants
  • Macadamia nuts
