If you feed your pet high quality pet food, such as Hills Pets food, then they will get all the nutrients that they require, including high quality protein. Hills Pets food is also available in different varieties for different shapes, sizes and ages of pet, for instance pet food designed for senior cats or dogs.
You can also bolster your pets health further by giving them a range of supplements, such as:
Antioxidants aren’t only good for humans. As our diet is very diverse we can easily source antioxidants from natural sources like fruit and green tea. Pets tend to exclusively east pet food, and so they may benefit from a diet supplemented with antioxidants.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Cats and dogs get Omega-3 fatty acids from their diets. Whilst rich in Omega 6, many pet foods don’t have high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. Just like in humans, Omega-3 can be supplemented using cod liver oil etc. Fish, and pet foods containing fish, are also good sources of Omega-3.
Enzymes are important for dogs, cats and humans. They are produced by the pancreas and are used to break down food. For older pets in particular there can be an inadequate supply of digestive enzymes, and this can lead to various health problems. Digestive enzymes can be supplemented, however.
It’s worth repeating that dogs and cats can get what they need predominantly from a healthy diet of quality pet food.
