Why don't you carry any food with by-products and why are they bad for my pet?
By-Products are all the left over parts of an animal that are not fit for human consumption. For example, chicken-by-products contain chicken heads, chicken beaks, and chicken feet in the pet food. Dogs and cats, unless they have a medical condition, should be getting a healthy protein diet. By-products are low in protein and high in fat. This is a cheap ingredient that some Pet Food Manufacturers use to keep their costs low. We don't sell anything with by-products because it is not a healthy food option for pets. The food we carry contains real beef, chicken, or fish as the main ingredient.
Should I be feeding my pet dry or wet food?
Unless your vet recommends otherwise, feeding both wet and dry food can be beneficial to your pet. Wet food is generally lower in fat and some brands such as Weruva contain pumpkin, which is a great natural digestive supplement. Dry food is good because your pet must chew the kibble, which helps strengthen their teeth. Ideally, you should try to balance between wet and dry food and always make sure your pet has access to fresh water. Too much wet food could lead to a loose stool while too much dry food could lead to constipation.
I want to change my pet's food. What is the easiest way to transition him/her?
Some pet's have more sensitive stomachs than others. The best way to transition your pet to a new food is to mix in the old food with the new. Start with a ratio of 75% Old Food / 25% New Food and gradually increase the proportion of the new food. Make sure you monitor your pet's stool during this transition period. If your pet's stool becomes too loose, then decrease the % of the new food. Make sure to speak to a sales associate who can provide you with free samples and recommend the right brand of food for your pet.
