Nutrition plays a critical role in the overall health of your pet. The many options available for pet owners can take the guesswork out of choosing the food that is best for your pet, however, the food choices you make for your pet are extremely important because there are many variables to consider. These may be the level of activity your pet has, its age, or medical conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, or arthritis. It is also important to consider how many calories your pet should have per day and how much food or how often your pet should be fed.
