Nutrition is one of the biggest parts of your animal’s healthy lifestyle. There are 6 main nutrients that an animal needs in their diet: water, protein, vitamins, fats, minerals and carbs. These six nutrients can help fight against food sensitivities in your pet. An animal-based protein is very important for your cat or dog’s diet. Omega-3 and Omega-6 are good fats that help reduce swelling and pain in your pet’s joints. Vitamin A, B vitamins, C, D, E and K are important for your animal’s diet as well.

Whole grains, fruits and vegetables are good to mix into your pet’s diet. Things such as oats, apples, bananas, carrots, broccoli and celery are good for dogs and cats.
