Healthy diet: what foods your pets can consume

Healthy eating

Our pets need to maintain a healthy and balanced diet for a longer life. However, we often don’t know what foods they can consume and, with that in mind, we’ll mention some foods that can be offered to pets safely.

It is important to point out that animal feed must be appropriate to the type of animal and their age, size and health condition. Consulting an expert is always the best option!

Foods that dogs can consume

Some foods in our routine can be included in the dog’s diet, but with some particularities:

  • Lean meat: Beef, chicken and fish are important protein sources for dogs. It is important that the meat is lean, boneless and prepared without spices or salt.
  • Vegetables: carrots, broccoli and zucchini are great sources of vitamins and fiber important for the health of the animal.
  • Fruits: apple, banana and watermelon can be offered in moderation, they provide vitamins and antioxidants that help in disease prevention.

Foods that cats can consume

  • Lean meat: Chicken, turkey and fish are a great source of protein, but they need to be offered in small amounts.
  • Eggs and Fiber: Protein sources like eggs can be included in moderation. Fibers are important, but they need to be administered carefully.

Remember that some foods, such as chocolate, onion, garlic, grapes, avocado, and coffee, are toxic for animals and should not be consumed by your pets, cat or dog.

In addition, it is essential to offer your pets a balanced and quality diet, according to their nutritional needs. Traditional feeds are a safe and practical option to offer all the nutrients for a complete and balanced diet.
