Why veterinary-Grade diets?

Veterinary-Grade diets are appropriately formulated, according to the national research committee-NRC nutritional requirements, to contribute in maintaining companion animal health. These requirements are specific to each species (dogs/ cats), age, weight and production (for example; service dogs have different requirements than racing dogs).

Veterinary-grade diets are tested for their ingredients composition, energy content, palatability, and digestibility. Based on this analysis you would be able to know how much food you should feed your pet (s) per day. This will ensure that your pet will receive the required amount of different nutrients and energy.
Veterinary-grade diets contain many nutritional supplements that have proven to havehealth benefits. For example fish oil, rich in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, is added in appropriate amount to the diet. These two components are important for the health of the nervous system, the skin, the coat, and the joints.

In addition to the wellness formulas (pediatric, adult, and senior), there are several formulas that have medical indications and available only in veterinary hospitals. For example, male cat with Feline Lower Urinary tract disease (blocked cat) is advised to be fed urinary formula. This diet will reduce the chances of stone formation as well as re-blocking. Likewise, overweight management formulas are indicated for cats and dogs, as overweight will likely predispose them to diabetes.
