Being the owner of a furry friend—no matter its size or type—means being an adamant supporter of your pet’s health and well-being. But what about pet nutrition? Often, we think that feeding our pets the right brand of food or taking them on occasional walks is adequate, but it’s often not enough to keep them in tip-top shape. As a pet owner, educating yourself on pet nutrition with the help of Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital not only makes for a happier, healthier pet, but allows you to enjoy your furry friend for many more years down the line.

It all starts with a good balance of diet and exercise. Make sure you are feeding your pet the correct amount of food. Overeating can lead to pet obesity, a common problem with pets that get bored sitting around waiting for owners to come home from work or school. When your pet does get hungry, feed them a balanced, nutritional meal to ensure they’re getting the most out of their food. Remember, stay away from unhealthy, dangerous, or spicy human food, which can lead to discomfort for your pet and potentially life-threatening health problems.

Exercise is equally important; try to make it consistent, instead of overdoing it on the weekends when you have more free time. Pets need daily stimulation and exercise—otherwise, they’ll become bored and overeat, and then strain their muscles or paws on the weekends when they do get outdoors.

At Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital, these veterinarians have a shared love of pet medicine and pet services. They’re committed to providing excellent care for your furry friend, no matter the time of day or issue at hand. For more information on pet nutrition, call today at (808) 671-7387.
