In recognition of National Puppy Day on March 23, Holistic Select staff veterinarian Dr. Al Townshend shared nutrition advice to new puppy owners.
Among his advice, Townshend recommended petfood supplemented with DHA to support the development of nervous tissue and visual function; advised owners to consider the nutritional needs of the pet's breed; and discouraged the overuse of 'people food' as pet treats since they don't meet pet's nutritional needs.
Pet owners want a lot from their pet food brands. They want primary proteins that suit what they believe is best for their animal. They want grains or they don't. They want something customized, but it has to be easy to understand.
Constraints and crises, like those experienced in 2020, help drive innovation and sustainability offers context.
