You are what you eat…..

Our pet’s appetites can be as different as they are. There is the Labrador whose food doesn’t even touch the side of their mouth it is wolfed down so quickly, to the cat who will only condescend to eat if the can has been freshly opened in front of them. And then there are all the others in between!

The food that we feed our pets affects their body in a number of ways. A diet deficient in the basics can lead to:

  • a dull coat, low energy levels,
  • lots of soft faeces to clear up,
  • excess wind,
  • tartar build up which then necessitate dentistry,
  • weight gain or weight loss, and
  • even smelly breath!

There is a huge range of pet foods available from pet shops, supermarkets, web site etc. The choice is be immense and it can be difficult to know if what you are feeding is best for your pet. Not all pet foods are the same. Just because it is the same bag of food, does not mean that the ingredients are the same bag to bag – is this why kitty is turning her nose up at it?

At Newstead Vets we stock the world’s top 3 brands of premium dog and cat food. They are Hills Science Diet, Eukanuba/Iams and Royal Canin. The ingredients in these foods have clinically proven health benefits.

It has long been perceived to be expensive to feed your pet on premium food but it is surprisingly affordable.

  • A cat can be fed on as little as 90c a day with Iams, and
  • A 15-20kg dog can be fed on as little as  $1.40/day with Eukanuba.
