Nutritional Counseling

Royal City Animal Hospital | Nutritional CounselingNutrition plays an important role in your pet’s health. A good diet will give your pet the advantage he or she needs to live a long and healty life. It is difficult to compare various diets based on the information on the package. The Guaranteed Analysis is a measurement of crude indredients such as protein, fibre, and carbohydrates. It does not, however give any indication of the quality of ingredients or how digestible they are. For instance, a rubber boot filled with engine oil is very high in protein but none of that protein can be used by your pets body. The other aspect of pet food labeling is the ingredient list. This too can be some what deceiving because there are various grades or qualtities of every raw ingredient. Pet food manufaturers are not required to use high grade ingredients, however several companies do chose to use the best.
