Stepping Up: Two Most Prevalent Problems with Pet Health

Pets don’t usually get much choice regarding their way of life and what they repeatedly put into their bodies. That responsibility lies with their owners; this is why it is so disheartening to hear of the two most prevalent problems in pet health are mostly owner-related.

Today, we wanted to talk about—you guessed it—the two biggest pet health problems that have been striking pets all over the world. It’s really odd how there could be so many people who have pets which end up having the same problems. The only common factor would be their owners. It is a rather difficult trend and we want it to stop and we believe that sharing information about it is the way to go.

Here are the two most prevalent pet health problems to date:

Obesity

There has been a startling trend of household pets that have been several kilograms over the healthy prescribed weight limit. There have been entire TV shows that centered on obese animals. What every episode seems to have in common is the fact that the owners of the pets seemingly are unaware of the right amount of food that is needed by their charges.

What happens is that a lot of pet owners give 2-4 times the food amount that is needed for them to be sufficiently fed. The end result is that the pets end up obscenely obese.

Malnutrition

Many people think that just because a pet is rather chunky (read that as obese) that they are getting all the nutrition that they need. The truth of the matter is that alongside obesity is pet malnutrition. There are a lot of house pets which are given mostly fatty and unhealthy food.

So while they bulk up, their bodies do not actually get the nutrition that they sorely need. Pet malnutrition is the gateway to many other diseases like organ failure. Cats may be picky with their food but this does not mean that you should overload them with the food that they do actually like.

So there you have it! We at Pet Centre of Sparta care quite deeply about the state of health of many loyal and loving pets all over the world. We would love to hear your thoughts on the matter of pet health issues. What else do you think are the most prevalent issues in terms of health?

Pet Nutrition 101: What Should You Look For In Your Pet’s Food Store?

When pets are in the picture, it is often important to be rather discerning as their owner. After all, your pets are completely reliant upon you to give them the care and nutrition that they need. When it comes to providing that very nutrition, one must always look at where you are getting the food or bully sticks.

Today, we wanted to discuss certain things that any caring pet owner should look for in their pet’s food store or food distributor. We feel this is something that needs to be discussed as more and more cases of food recalls are being made. If we want to keep our pets safe, we need to be proactive. With that being said, let’s take a look at a few things you should be looking at:

 

Licensing

Every business should have proper accreditation and licensing. If they are a pet food distributor for a specialized set of clientele like dogs, cats, and other such pets, they will need different licensing that allows them to sell food.

If the business that you are patronizing isn’t licensed, you can bet that the food that they are selling are either knock-offs or items that “fell off a truck”. This can mean that you will have no guarantees that the food that you are buying is actually from the brand that you like or that it is made of the ingredients that it says that it is made of.

Variety of Options

The best sort of pet food stores and distributors offer their consumers with a wide variety of options to choose from. When the pet food store sells only a couple, you can be that they tend to prioritize those based on other things like profit rather than service.

If the business that you are patronizing only offers a select number of options for your pet, you are severely limiting your choices. As a pet owner, it is best to make sure that you choose a distributor that can give you more options to pursue for your pet’s best health.

So there you have it! We at Pet Centre of Sparta care very much about the sort of options that our patrons are able to secure for their much beloved four legged family members. We would love to know your ideas about today’s topic. What are the particular things that pet owners need to look for in the pet food store or distributor that they patronize?
