Tips to helping pets live their best life possible starting with a healthier diet for the new year.

The start of a new year can signal a fresh start for pet owners and their pets. Pet owners should kick off 2018 by reassessing their pet’s health and nutrition to help them live their best life possible. Joining us with some helpful information is Dr. Evan Antin, Veterinarian at Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Antin shares why quality diet and nutrition is essential to helping pets live long, healthy lives. However, many pet owners are not aware of what this consists of and are looking to the latest trends to help them make decisions about their pet’s health.
The most important aspect of pet food is whether it provides complete and balanced nutrition for pets. Pet owners should have a good understanding of the ingredients used in their pets’ food – such as grains and by-products – and the benefits they bring.

Pet owners should research the quality and safety standards of their pet food and know who makes it, where it’s made, the steps taken to ensure the quality and safety of their food, and if their food meets or exceeds FDA and AAFCO standards. They can do this by contacting or checking their pet food manufacturer’s website or speaking with their veterinarian.
