Let’s be honest. All pet parents give their fur babies extra treats and meals for just being the good pets that they are. But many fail to realize that giving them more than the recommended daily amount of pet food and treats can cause a huge impact on their overall nutrition. Recently, veterinarians have highlighted the long-term effects of overnutrition, obesity and how pets are not fully benefitting much from popular diets, such as high-meat formulas. There is a call for pet parents to be more vigilant in selecting the food that their fur babies are consuming; instead, they need to take heed in joining the bandwagon on what is supposedly appropriate for their pets to eat and look more deeply at how their pets’ diets are truly nourishing them.
