March Is National Nutrition Month And A Great Time To Reassess Your Pet's Diet

March is National Nutrition Month® which originated in 1973 as an annual nutrition education and information campaign by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It is intended to help spotlight the importance of eating a nutritious diet and developing an eating and physical activity plan for a healthy lifestyle.

Although this was intended for people, we would like to extend this to pets. Dogs and cats should eat a healthy balance between protein, fiber, fats (especially Omega 3 fatty acids) and limited carbohydrates. Many pet foods that claim to be “healthy” contain ingredients that can contribute to a variety of problems including allergies and urinary tract infections.
