3 Important Facts about Pet Nutrition in the Triangle

Dogs and cats in the Cary and Triangle need good nutrition to thrive and remain healthy. It is easy for pet parents to get overwhelmed by the many food options available. Often, a long look at the ingredients on a bag of pet food may be necessary to determine what is really inside the package. At Paws in the City, our team of professionals are committed to offering only natural and holistic pet food that uses high quality ingredients without the added fillers and by-products. What are some things to look for when choosing the right food for the family pet?

Paws in the City presents three basic and important facts about nutrition that will benefit dog and cat in owners and their pets in the Triangle area:

  • Be careful that sweet-tasting treats may contain too much sugar: Some commercial food and treat companies increase the sugar content in their products to stimulate taste receptors. However, cats can’t taste sweetness, and, even though dogs do taste sweetness, they have fewer taste receptors than humans.
  • Note that dogs and cats are not able to digest large amounts of grains: Check the labels on pet food to see if grain is listed as one of the first ingredients. Dogs and cats need food that is richer in protein, as their bodies are not designed for digesting food that contains too many grains.
  • Water is important for healthy pets: Just as humans need to drink a lot of water each day, pets also need a steady supply of fresh, clean water to keep their systems healthy. Water keeps bodies functioning properly, in pets and their owners. The family dog and cat need to have a water bowl filled so they can have a refreshing drink throughout the day.
