Food is one of our favorite things that we like to share with furry friends. In recent months I have reviewed several articles about good foods and bad foods to be sharing with our furry friends.
This is an easy reference list to refer to when considering sharing our favorite foods with our furry family members.
With many healthy food options available for our furry friends, we as pet parents can help improve our furry friend’s health. The healthy food options can help manage your fur baby’s weight along with daily exercise. The safe food options listed are meant to be treats and not meal replacements. If you would like to switch over to a more organic diet, please consult your veterinarian.
When adding or changing your fur baby’s diet you should watch for any digestive or behavioral changes. If either of these changes is to occur, stop feeding the new food. If the problems do not resolve you should seek veterinarian advice.
