The importance of pet nutrition: what does the ‘purrfect’ diet look like?

As a pet owner, you probably ask yourself: ‘What is the best diet for my pet? How much and how often should I feed them?’. As a rule of thumb, all pets need protein, carbohydrates (including fibre), fats, vitamins, minerals and water in their diet. Yet, the quantities and ingredients will vary from a pet to another.

That is why a correct diet depends on a variety of factors like:

  • Species/breed
  • Age group (puppy, adult or senior)
  • Size
  • Weight and whether they need to gain/lose weight
  • Lifestyle
  • Existing medical condition(s)
  • Special requirements (i.e. food intolerance, pregnancy, etc.)
  • Vitamin/mineral deficiencies

At MyOwnVet, we carefully analyse these details and provide personalised pet nutrition advice, so that your pet enjoys a happier, healthier and longer life.

  • increased mobility and fitness level (along with regular exercise)

  • reduced odour
  • loss of body fat
  • better dental health, less tartar build-up and fresher breath
