Pet Food Supplements
Many veterinarians and manufacturers suggest that supplementing your pet supplements can cause imbalances and deficiencies that actually lead to health problems.
At the same time, many experts strongly recommending supplementing commercial pet foods, and even providing an entirely homemade diet. Homemade dog food or cat food may seem to be an expensive and time-consuming luxury, but many people suggest that it may be less expensive, that it is quite easy to do, and that it is the very best thing you could do for the health of your pet!
The bottom line, on which all experts agree, is to achieve the proper balancing of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Check out our Pet Nutrition Bookstore for a variety of books and other resources worth consulting on this subject.
It is also generally agreed that, if you are feeding your pet a commercial diet, the total of all supplements - vitamins/minerals, treats and people food - should not exceed more than 10 to 15% of your pet's total daily intake.
With that in mind, you'll find a huge array of dog treats and cat treats on offer in your pet supplies store, and you can even find dog treat recipes that you can make yourself!
