Does the food you are feeding provide the right nutritional needs for your pets? Having the right food is vital for optimal health, but do you know exactly what to feed them?

Our beloved dogs and cats have unique requirements depending on its size, breed, age, among other factors. They need several different kinds of nutrients to thrive: amino acids from proteins, fatty acids and carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and water. When it comes to feeding, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

Session 2: Cats Nutrition: How to Feed your Pets like a Pro!

26 Nov | Saturday| 1pm – 2pm

Low-fat diets may be popular for humans, but is this something that you should consider for your lovely felines?

The value of carbohydrates and nutrient profile in cat food is often debated among cat owners, veterinarians and nutritionists. Contrary to what is available in most commercial foods, cats thrive on a higher fat, lower carb diet.

Did you know that as compared to dogs, cats have lower concentrations of digesting enzymes to process carbohydrates in their intestines? When it comes to caring for our felines, it’s important to learn how to nourish them the right way to ensure long-term great health and to prevent common health problems such as obesity and diabetes.
