In the meantime until that appointment, here are a few pet food suggestions to consider.
Scientific Formulas. - Pet food comes in a variety of different scientific formulas. nowadays. These are designed to provide the nutrients and vitamins dogs and cats of all sizes, ages, and breeds need. There are special formulas for puppies, adults, and geriatric pets, as well as ones designed for the big pets, like a mastiff, or a small guy, like a Boston Terrier.
Portion Control. - It’s also important to look at the directions on the food bags to see how much your pet should get, and how often. Though these directions are rather general, they can be used as a guideline for how much to give your pet. If you know your pal doesn’t really eat a whole lot in the morning, but is starving by dinner time, consider giving your pet some dry food in the morning, and leaving it out for them to graze on as they get hungry. Just be careful not to overfeed them. Provide only as much as the bag or your vet suggests.
Dry VS Wet. - On the one hand, canned food is often more nutritious, and usually more tasty for pets. On the other hand, dry food is easier to store, and leave out.
