Pet Supplies Plus Shares Tips on How to Choose Pet Food

MARSHFIELD, WI (OnFocus) – Not all pet food is created equally. When choosing a pet food for your dog, cat, or other companion animal, there are important considerations to undertake. Pet Supplies Plus carries a wide range of pet food brands and their team is happy to help with any questions.

“We are selective on the pet food brands we carry,” said Kim Crawford, Store Team Lead. “The pet food we carry features higher quality ingredients, comes from companies with years of experience in the industry, and have been vetted for safety.”

Brands available at Pet Supplies Plus include Purina Pro Plan, Fromm, Taste of the Wild, Science Diet, Redford Naturals, Wellness, Royal Canin, Natural Balance, Honest Kitchen, Merrick, Blue Buffalo, and more.

“It is our goal to provide high-quality food options for our neighbors and their pets,” said Crawford. “Pets are family and they deserve the best! With more research than ever before into pet dietary needs, it’s our hope your pet can enjoy a long, healthy life.”

Just like with humans, each pet requires different dietary needs. Here are some steps to take when choosing a pet food:

Talk with your veterinarian

The number one thing you can do when choosing a food for your pet is talk to the experts themselves. Your veterinarian will be able to recommend a diet for your pet based on age, health, and dietary needs. Pet Supplies Plus is able to provide prescription pet food with a veterinarian’s approval.

Research ingredients

Just like humans, some pets have allergies to certain ingredients. Also, many pet foods are full of fillers that provide no nutritional value to the pet. Read the nutrition labels and know what the ingredients mean and do. Also, be sure to note portion size for your pet’s weight.

Don’t base your decision on price alone

It can be tempting to go with the cheapest pet food, but keep in mind that if your pet isn’t on a good diet they are likely to have more (expensive!) health issues. By investing in a high-quality, nutritious food, you are helping your pet achieve optimal health.
