Pet Calendar: Pet Food Safety Month

Pet Calendar: Pet Food Safety Month

As pet parents we do our best to feed our pets — dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. — the healthiest diet we can and that’s why in our pet calendar: pet food safety month is important. Actually it’s food safety month for humans, but let’s face it — our pets are our family!

When you become a pet parent you need to assure your pet will be healthy for a lifetime and one way to do that is to assure he is eating a healthy diet. We also know when you go online or into a pet store that the choices on the shelves are overwhelming! Ask your veterinarian what food he or she recommends.

  1. Does your pet have specific dietary requirements?
  2. Is she overweight?
  3. A large breed?
  4. A small breed?
  5. Senior?
  6. Puppy?
  7. Active or couch potato?
  8. What kind of protein do you want your dog to have? Beef, turkey, kangaroo? The choices are mind-boggling.
