Your vet  is also your pet’s nutrionist. So be sure to ask your vet about your pet’s nutrition. What should my pet be eating? Ask for an opinion on the best food to feed your cat or dog. Depending on your pet’s age, weight and overall health, your veterinarian may recommend a formula for less active cats or dogs or a formula to address a medical issue. Nutrition is key to good health.

A nice cat scratching post will also help keep nails in good shape.
