Feeding your pet human food could have adverse effects

Today’s topic, feeding your pet human food, is a tricky one. First, if your pet is on a good quality dog or cat food, they should be receiving all of their vital nutrients. Humans metabolize foods differently than our furry friends. So your favorite snacks could cause major health problems for your pet.

Next, if your dog gets used to eating juicy steaks every night, they might grow averse to their own food or develop a begging habit that’s hard to break. Talk to your veterinarian about what high quality food your pet should be eating and if any supplements are ideal for your pet’s needs.
