There are a lot of pet food choices these days. What should I be feeding my pet?

There’s certainly a lot of hype surrounding different types of pet food, but not all the new foods are what they are cracked up to be. Depending on your pet, cats, dogs, and others have specific needs based on their bodies. Talk to a veterinarian to know which food your pet needs in order to live a healthy life.

Can I feed my pet human food?

Veterinarians warn against a diet based in human food, often leaning more towards prepared pet foods (kibble) for reasons of safety, and of course cost. A good rule of thumb would be to consider human food as “treats” and not a staple food source for your pet. Treats being 15% or less than their daily consumption of food.
As your pet’s owner, you may find that your dog likes to eat certain items that don’t disrupt their digestive cycle, like peas or a slice of roast beef from your sandwich. Cats often like to eat raspberries, blueberries, canteloupe and zuchinni. All good for snack time.
Your cat or dog are still officially considered carnivores (meat eaters) so grains like oats, soy, millet, rice and wheat are inflammatory foods for your pet. Also some foods ARE TOXIC to feed to dogs and cats such as grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts and onions. Want to learn if chocolate is poisonous, or what houseplants to avoid?

There are many Vets to choose from in our area. Most are good but if your pet is as much of a part of your family as Ava is to our family the choice is clear. This place offers amazing care. They offer it all from puppy start up, routine check ups and any emergency that may arise. We use all of their services: Vet services, Logging and Daycare.

If I could give this office 6 stars, I would! I moved to Ohio last year and couldn’t have chosen a better vet to take my dog to. Dr. Jacob is the absolute best! He clearly has a genuine sense of care and compassion for all animals. He answers all my questions honestly and it truly feels like he considers his patients as his own pets. The lodging/boarding here is also amazing! I don’t think my dog wanted to come home😄 Highly, highly recommend!

We took our German Shepherd, that is less than social, as a new patient. We have struggled trying to get an ear problem improved. Dr. Emily Benedict was awesome. She was patient and spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. We ended up having a minor surgery and it ended up being a little bit beyond closing time. We were never rushed by the staff. This was a much better experience for our pet and us than we were having at our last vet. This is a very nice large facility with drinks and snacks for us humans. I can highly recommend not only Dr. Benedict but the entire staff
