Tips for Selecting a Diet

Choosing the right diet for your pet is crucial to ensure their overall health and well-being, but can be extremely overwhelming with the number of options available. Consult with your veterinarian at Pet Townsend Veterinary Clinic and use the following tips to choose the best food for your cat or dog.

Look for AAFCO guidelines

Choose a food that has been tested by the AAFCO and is claimed to be nutritionally adequate. If approved, packaging will state that the food is “formulated to meet or exceed the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO nutritional profiles” or that “animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that the pet food provides complete and balanced nutrition” for pets.

Consider Your Pet’s Needs

It is important to choose a food that is tailored to your pet’s age, size, species, and lifestyle to meet their specific dietary needs and caloric requirements.

Pay Attention to the Labels

Pet food labels provide valuable insight into the quality of the food and how it can affect your pet. Pay close attention to the nutritional adequacy statement, list of ingredients, guaranteed analysis, and feeding directions. Be sure to not feed a diet labeled for either intermittent or supplemental use long-term, unless directed by your pet’s veterinarian.
