Healthy Nutrition for Your Pet
The holidays are quickly approaching, and they bring an assortment of delicious feasts. This time of year, we tend to indulge in foods that may not be healthy for us, and we are often tempted to give samples of these delights to our pet. We are treating ourselves, so why not our furry family member?
We may think we are being kind, but we can actually be hurting our cat or dog. The fact is that human food can be extremely unhealthy and even dangerous. But rest assured, you can treat your pet to snacks that are both enjoyable and healthy!
Royal Pets Market & Resort carries a variety of brand name, high-quality healthy meals for your four-legged friend. You can choose from traditional kibble, freeze dried foods, and frozen raw foods. Raw foods are made with organic fruits and vegetables, fortified with added vitamins and minerals, and frozen for ultimate freshness. The meals are more digestible, and your pet is getting the nutrients without the additives and fillers.
So, before you try to feed your pet a slice of pumpkin pie, reach for a tasty gourmet treat instead. Your pet will enjoy it even more!
Meet with a Pet Nutritionist or Veterinarian
It can be difficult to choose what is the best product for your pet’s needs. The staff at Royal Pets are highly trained in pet nutrition and can help you pick out the best food and treats for your pet.
For more in-depth information on your pet’s nutritional needs or to diagnose any health issues you may be concerned about, make an appointment with a Royal Pet’s veterinarian for a comprehensive wellness exam. The caring staff can review your cat or dog’s overall health and advise you on the best dietary guidelines to follow to maintain your pet’s health.
