New Year's Resolution For Your Pets

Dec 20, 2007
As the holiday approaches, you start to think about the mistakes that you have made over the last year and what you would like to change in the New Year. New Year's resolutions allow us to put into perspective what it is that we actually want to achieve with our lives in the following year.

If you are a pet owner then one thing that you might like to do, is to make a New Year's resolution that involves your pet. This resolution should be that will make them even healthier and happier than they are today and there is no better way than to start with their diet.

Improving Your Pets Diet

Whether you own a cat or a dog, what you feed them has a direct effect on their health and well being. Many owners do not think about this when they look out for a type of food to feed their pet. In fact, many owners do not realize the difference between the various brands of dog and cat food. To them all dog and cat food is the same and it is all equally as good for their pet as the next brand. However, that is sadly not the case.

If you were to look into the ingredients that actually go into cheap pet food, you would soon realize just how bad for your pet it actually is. It is not just food either; pet treats can also be extremely bad for them. The effects that it can have on your pet can be devastating. So wouldn't it be kinder to pay a little bit extra for a type of food that will improve your pet's health?

Premium dog and cat food is designed with your pet in mind. Providing them with only the finest ingredients, premium pet food helps to keep your pet looking and feeling healthier. Generally meat is the main ingredient in healthy dog food, along with vegetables and anti-oxidants too. You can spot poor quality pet food by looking to see if it contains any artificial colorings and flavorings as well as BHA and BHT.

Generally poor quality dog food can cause your pet to become obese. This is not a laughing matter as obesity in our pets can cause:

* Heart and Respiratory Disease
* Joint Problems
* Diabetes
* Liver Disease

As you can see from the above list, you pet could be seriously ill if you do allow them to become obese. Giving them too many poor quality treats will result in obesity and so it would be a good idea to look at the alternatives available to you. Purchasing premium quality treats will help to keep your pet happy and healthy and it will also put your mind at ease, too.

Feeding your pet a healthy, premium grade pet food will really help to keep your pet well. Once you realize exactly what goes into cheaper dog food brands you will soon realize that it is a lot safer to opt for a slightly more expensive food, than it is to risk your pets health with a cheaper alternative.
