When a pet is in the family, it is essential to maintain its normal development, growth and provide proper nutrition. A balanced diet of excellent quality is crucial. Only in this case will the animal not have health problems and will always be happy, joyful, and playful.

Secrets of choosing food

There are many feeds of different brands and types for pets. Figuring them out is difficult, especially if you’ve only recently gotten a dog or cat. Several factors will help make the selection process easier and help you choose the best option:

  1. Composition – it is recommended to give preference to professional food, which is labeled as Premium and Super Premium. Moreover, it does not matter whether it is dry food or canned food. Of course, you can also buy economy-class products, although they cannot always provide the pet with the necessary nutrients. When choosing food, you should carefully read the composition. It should contain proteins of animal origin. Remember that the composition indicates the ingredients in the order of decreasing their mass fraction in the product.
  2. Taste – if the priority is to choose a feed with the highest meat content, you should know exactly whether your four-legged friend is not allergic to meat of a particular origin. And you should also realize that certain meats cause each dog’s stomach to develop a personal pH level. In such a case, you have to switch to a different food. If your pet suffers from allergies or is prone to obesity, paying attention to dry food or canned turkey is recommended.
  3. Precise dosage – following the exact daily ration of a particular feed is essential. It will help the animal not to gain excess weight and get enough nutrients. As a rule, there is always a table on the food package where the daily food norm is located, considering the pet’s weight, age, and physique.

The question of the frequency of feeding the animal is no less relevant. For example, one to two meals a day is optimal for dogs. It would be best to feed cats more often, usually 5 to 7 times a day. The difference is that cats have a shorter circulatory system.

What food to choose?

It is necessary to buy high-quality and safe food for your pet. The pet food manufacturer the company “Kormotech”, which has earned a good reputation among consumers, produces such goods.
