Let’s be honest- Taking care of a pet for the first time can be just as overwhelming as having a child for the first time. You need time, dedication, and knowledge of how to care for them, and of course, love. There’s a theory that one should start out with a plant first. It’s easy to see why. So what is the top choice in regards to food and nutrition to benefit your pet to its fullest potential?
Remember when the new “thing to do” while dieting, was to have food delivered to your doorstep? Calories were already counted and you need not worry about a thing. Well in today’s society, there are hundreds of methods pertaining to pet nutrition, and this happens to be a very popular trend. With a click of your mouse, you can now have healthy, nutritious proportioned food sent to your home, specifically for your furry loved one. Not only is a healthy meal sent per week, but the food is categorized based on what type of protein you’d prefer. There is even a recommended cleansing system. Juicing for pets, anyone?
As simple as that sounds, it’s pricey; however, there is some nutritional advice for pet lovers on a budget, such as myself. Believe it or not, according to PetMD, hardboiled eggs and their shells are highly suggested. They provide a great source of protein, among other benefits.
The great thing about it? There are two options: You can crumble the shell itself and combine it with the usual given food, or you can chop up the entire egg into bits and pieces. There are also good carbohydrates that can be eaten to provide healthy amino and fatty acids, as long as they’re mixed with protein. Examples are: lamb and rice, beef and potatoes, and chicken and pasta. Vegetables are a good basis as well for homemade foods. Some with a kick should be avoided such as onion and garlic, as they can be toxic to certain animals.
Another vital nutrition component includes vitamins. Is it a must for healthy pet nutrition?
It depends. Certain animals are prone to certain vitamin deficiencies; therefore, if your pet isn’t getting a balanced meal, there are vitamin supplements. Chinchillas are prone to Vitamin B deficiencies whereas Guinea pigs are prone to Vitamin A deficiencies, while too much Vitamin D can be harmful for birds. Always, Always, Always check with your vet. before you make any decisions regarding your Pet’s diet and supplements.
