Nutrition is a topic which is of great importance to pretty much everyone. As people, we should care a lot about what we put into our bodies. As pet owners, we should care about what we end up feeding our pets.
When it comes to finding sources of pet food, the options are usually very linear. The usual sources would be:
- The Vet
- Local Grocery
- Pet Food Brand Concessionaire
How well can you trust those sources? When it comes to pet food, it is important that YOU (as the owner of an animal) can trust the source of food. This is because of a few reasons:
There have been a lot of scares regarding contaminated pet food. What was supposed to be a trusted brand ended up being the reason by a beloved pet was poisoned or killed. Pet owners tend to be really attached to their animal companions and it would only suitably follow that we would want them to be safe.
Pet food quality is something that is always important and cannot be understated. There have been some histories of pet food that had some rather sketchy quality to them but were still sold. If you, as the pet owner, cannot trust the quality of the pet food source, it is highly unlikely that you would give it to your pet.
As a Pet Owner
It is your responsibility to make sure that the animal under your care is treated well and is provided proper nutrition. As nutrition can have trends and will always have more recent developments, it would be important that you find sources that you trust. Look around and establish your network of information well—this is something that will always be a work in progress.
As a pet owner, why do YOU think you need food sources that you can trust?
