Eine ausgewogene Ernährung für treue Begleiter

A balanced diet for loyal companions

A balanced diet is vital to the long-term health of our four-legged friends. Similar to humans, a balanced diet is the basis for keeping dogs and cats in good physical and mental health. But what exactly does “balanced nutrition” mean?

First of all, we should understand that dogs and cats have different nutritional needs. Dogs are omnivores and can eat both meat and vegetables, while cats are obligate carnivores and require a high-protein diet. That's why it's important to choose high-quality food that meets these specific requirements.

For dogs, food should contain high-quality proteins, complex carbohydrates, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. The amount of food is also important, so it is advisable to follow the manufacturer's recommendations or contact the veterinarian to determine the correct daily portion.

Protein is crucial for cats. A meat-based diet with adequate hydration is essential. Many pet owners prefer wet food to ensure their cats get enough fluids.

Reading pet food labels to understand the ingredients and their quality is also important. It is advisable to consult with the veterinarian to consider specific nutritional needs, such as those of puppies, older animals or those with health problems.

Proper nutrition is crucial, but don't forget to provide fresh, clean water. Adequate fluid intake is important for kidney and overall health.
