Claims of ‘premium’, ‘super premium’ or ‘gourmet’ shouldn’t be taken at face value, as these are mere marketing tactics designed to sell you a product. Dr William Burkholder, a specialist at the Center for Veterinary Medicine, recommends looking past the claims on packaging and actually checking the list of ingredients. To do so, you only need a minimal knowledge of nutritional information.
Health is just as important for our furry four-legged friends as it is for us – yet you might not know what illness looks like in your pet. Keeping an eye out for signs of illness in your canine or feline may mean the difference between an easily treatable malady becoming a serious illness. So you should take the time to educate yourself!
It’s unfair and unfortunate, but nonetheless a fact of life that your dog or cat will likely become ill at some point. Serious illnesses will require your vet, but minor problems like fleas can be dealt with at home by yourself!
