It is very important that your pet eats a well-balanced diet to optimize their health. Some pets will benefit from a specific prescription diet that contains particular ingredients geared to treating and preventing certain disease processes. Amici Pet Hospital carries high quality prescription diets from the following reputable brands: Hill’s Science Diet, Royal Canin, and Purina. Our doctors and highly trained staff will be able to make recommendations and help you decide which diet is best for your pet.
When looking at commercial brand pet foods, please look for products that contain the label and are approved by the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO). Pet foods approved by AAFCO have met the standards and requirements needed to ensure its quality and nutritional value.
Alternatively, home-cooked diets can be a great option for your pet, but can be difficult to ensure it is well balanced and nutritious. Please ask our doctors for more information regarding home-cooked diets.
