So the family is almost complete, except for one thing. It’s time to pick out a furry friend to join the household. Pets are so much fun. They’re entertaining, loveable and lively, always putting a smile on someone’s face. The right choice of pet depends on circumstances, but it’s hard to go wrong with a dog or a cat. These are the most popular choices for a very good reason. Both kinds of animal are friendly, relatively easy to care for and loveable. Dogs are a little bit more hands on because they need to be exercised and can be more of a tie. It’s easier to go away with a cat because the neighbours can just pop in and feed it.
No matter kind of animal people decide to get they need to look after it properly. There’s a certain amount of responsibility that comes with being a pet owner. A dog will need exercise and company. A cat will need a nice warm place to sleep. And both kinds of animal need a good diet.
Nutrition is a key part of keeping any pet happy and healthy. Each breed and animal is different. Just like us humans they have individual likes and dislikes. Getting the balance right is importance. For both cats and dogs it holds true that mostly they need a mix of wet and dry food. That combination of meat and biscuit should give them everything they need for a a happy and healthy life.
Of course other factors should be taken into account. Kittens and puppies will have very different nutritional requirements to senior animals who may need supplements to help with their joints.
