Frequently Asked Questions!

What’s the best diet for my pet?

There’s no best food diet for a dog or a cat, contrary to what all the adverts claim. Every pet has unique needs and tastes, so you will want to find your pet’s best diet. Also, bear in that expense doesn’t necessarily mean quality.

You will find some inexpensive diets online with years of rigorous scientific testing showing their benefits. Still, there are some very expensive options without any vital nutrients or that are not based on sound medical advice.

Generally, bigger manufacturers use more stringent quality control protocols, use expert food scientists and nutritionists’ services, and work to widen our collective nutrition knowledge via research. However, smaller companies could exhibit less control over ingredient quality and carry out less laboratory testing. They may not also want to use the services of full or part-time veterinary nutritionists.

A crucial tip to always keep in mind is that if a product’s advert seems too good to be true, it probably is. Be cautious when the manufacturer cites research or papers they can’t provide sources for or makes substantiated claims.

How can I select a good diet for my pet?

Consider looking for foods produced by reputable companies that have long histories of releasing high-quality diets. Choose diets with labels containing an Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) statement, which says they’ve gone through animal feeding trials for the relevant life stage.

They’re better than those formulated by computer to satisfy AAFCO nutrient requirements for that specific life stage. This distinction is especially crucial for kitten and puppy diets. It’s also important when you want to buy diets made by smaller (and perhaps newer) companies without much experience in diet formulation.

The ideal thing is that food companies conduct both internal and external research to make their products better and add to our collective nutrition knowledge.

Which diet is best for a growing kitten or puppy?

Consider using a kitten diet for growing kittens or opt for an all-life stages formula until they clock a year. As for growing small and medium breed puppies, you can give them a puppy diet or all-life stages formula until they’re one year old.

If you’ve large and giant breed puppies (with adult size more than 50 lbs), feed them with a diet designed specifically for large breed puppies until they become 12 – 18 months of age. The ideal thing is to ensure these products meet AAFCO feeding trials rather than merely being formulated to satisfy the nutrient requirements for growth.

You can get this information on the product label. For the whole duration of growth, it’s crucial to make sure your kitten or puppy stays lean to reduce risks for health issues and optimize his/her lifespan.

Keep in mind that that neutering or spaying your pet will reduce his/her calorie requirements. For this reason, it’s crucial to keep calories low during the surgery period to reduce obesity risks. At Just4mypet, we can help you choose the most appropriate diets for your growing puppies and kittens.

Are grains bad for dogs?

Not at all. Rather than being fillers, whole grains give vital nutrients such as minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids, and fiber in diets. They also help keep the calories and fat lower than if the makers use animal products in their place. Even refined grains like white rice offer health benefits based on the diet type and the pet type.
