Is your pup a picky eater? Does your cat turn her nose up at meal time? If you’re struggling with a picky pet your first instinct may be to feed them table scraps or other human food. This can be dangerous, because it will provide inadequate nutrition and too many calories for your furry companion.
I spoke with Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, PhD, senior nutritionist at Petcurean, to find out what we can do to help our companion animals eat the food that we provide. Of course, the first thing you need to consider is the quality of the food that you’re providing. If you’re not providing a high quality food, your pet will be less likely to gobble it up.
Dr. Adolphe also explains why our pets may be picky eaters and the easiest ways to get them to eat regular meals. For example, did you consider increasing your pet’s daily exercise? Perhaps he just isn’t hungry at meal time. For more information and some very helpful tips, check out this week’s podcast episode.
