Pet Nutrition From Your Studio City Veterinarian

As a pet owner, ensuring that your dog or cat receives the right nutrition is a key component to helping the animal live a healthy and active life. At the Animal Emergency Centre, serving the areas of Los Angeles and Studio City, our veterinary staff are happy to help you figure out the ins and outs of devising the perfect diet for your pet.

The Importance of Quality Pet Nutrition

Cats and dogs need a balanced diet complete with key vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, and other essential nutrients. Why? Because high-quality pet nutrition can improve every aspect of animal wellness, including digestion, metabolism, hormonal balance, organ function, bone and joint health, and more. Good nutrition can also help prevent or lessen the impact of chronic health conditions, including obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and many cancers. 

Plus, an animal that spends a lifetime eating healthy and nutritious food can be expected to enjoy a longer life!

The following are a few things to keep in mind when making decisions about what to feed (and what not to feed) your cat or dog:

  • You should be giving your pet enough food to support lean body mass and physical activity—no more, and no less. 
  • Your animal may need different types or amounts of food at different points in its life. For instance, puppies and kittens often need more protein compared to adult animals, in order to support adequate growth and development. Likewise, your cat or dog may require certain dietary restrictions or modifications in order to appropriately monitor a chronic health condition, such as feline diabetes, kidney disease, food allergies, or overweight/obesity. 
  • Look at labels. It's important to remember that what's in your pet's food is as important as what's not in it. Avoid foods that contain things like artificial ingredients, chemicals, preservatives, and sugar, as these may increase your animal's risk for things like obesity or dental disease. It may be helpful to think about the money you spend on high-quality pet food as an investment in your pet's health that could save you money in the long run by helping you avoid costly and stressful illnesses. 
  • Go easy on the treats. Too many table scraps and snacks throughout the day may reinforce undesirable behaviors and make your animal a fussy eater. Plus, many human foods are toxic to cats and dogs (including onions, garlic, grapes, raisins, chocolate, and chicken bones), so you could end up accidentally harming your pet.
