Rain or shine, we hope that all of our furiends are enjoying their weekend!
Our Tip of the Day:
When buying food for your dogs and cats, keep in mind that dogs are omnivores and cats are carnivores. This means that, when you see a pet food containing vegetables and fruits such as carrots or peas or blueberries, this caters more to a dog's natural instincts and needs than it does to a cat's. That's not say that foods containing these non-meat ingredients will harm a cat, but it does mean that those ingredients are ones that cats would not seek out in the wild and are more likely to serve as extra fillers in cat food. Oftentimes, especially when it comes to cat food, adding colorful and "healthy" foods such as vegetables and fruits is something that is done to appeal to and draw in the owner more than the animal. All in all, if you wish to feed your furbabies foods that cater to their natural, wild instincts, dogs may very well enjoy a food with various vegetables or fruits, whereas cats might find more pleasure in a more heavily meat-based food.
