A good quality, nutritious, species-appropriate diet is essential for good health and for recovery from disease. There is no perfect diet for every single animal, and the array of pet food options grows yearly, which can make finding the right diet for your individual pet a challenge. People are becoming more interested in the contents of their own foods, as well as the food of their pets. This is because we now understand that the right diet should help prevent disease, promote general health and maximise longevity.
