TAKING PET WELLNESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL
When you have your pets around the house without restricting their access to any room, it is only a matter of time before they get into some food that either you left out or the kids dropped on the floor. The good news is that there are plenty of foods that are safe for your pets to eat and can actually be beneficial in one way or another. Here are four foods that are safe for your pets to eat and some of their benefits. Read this Paradise Point Animal Hospital article and contact us to schedule a consultation for your pet.
Carrots can be a good way to help remove plaque from your pet’s teeth and are also a good source of vitamin A. Although, when feeding your cat carrots, make sure they are either cut in small pieces or cooked as these can be a choking hazard.
Apples can be a good snack or treat for your pets. You can have them chilled and give them to your cat to help them cool down after a hot day. Like every fruit that your pets can eat, make sure it is only occasionally since these fruits tend to have high sugar content.
Blueberries are a good source of antioxidants and are rich in fibers which can be good for their digestion. Also, thanks to their size, they can be a good alternative for training treats from time to time. Think about it as dessert treats when training.
Fish has many benefits for your pets, especially oily fishes. The omega-3 fatty acids are a good immune system booster and can also help to keep their coats and skin healthy. Your furry friend will love the flavor and you can even combine it with their food to add a flavorful twist to their food.
While all of these foods are safe to eat, moderation is key. As with everything your pet eats, it is good to do some research beforehand and make sure that it’s the best for them. You can contact Paradise Point Animal Hospital and schedule a consultation to learn more about your pet’s health, the things that they can eat, and even start a nutrition plan for your pet if they have any special food needs or allergies.
