What to look for...
food for thought...
Pets are no different than humans when it comes to how food impacts your overall health & well-being. What we feed them effects their skin & coat, digestion, energy, dental hygiene, etc.
As pet owners, we are responsible for giving the best care to our fur-babies - and that means being diligent about knowing what you feed them.
Do your research! Really sniff around when deciding what to feed your pets. A good brand will be transparent about the sourcing of ingredients - and they won't risk quality by using cheap fillers to save on costs.
Yes high-quality food comes at a higher price, but when you break down the numbers, the extra dollar a day is worth a healthier life for your pet.
