Diet is the foundation for all health.

The old proverb ‘You are what you eat’ has never had more meaning then when talking about our pets’ food.

Fresh Vegtables are great for your pet. 
Whole raw veggies may be a little
harder for an older pet to digest
so grating them is a good idea!

NEVER feed your pets onions!

Pets are fed highly processed and artificial foods, made of unhealthy ingredients, such as peanut hulls, artificial colorings and flavorings, as well as harmful preservatives such as BHA, BHT and ethoxyquin. The meat content is often made of by-products, that can include cancerous tissues, diseased organs, rendered animals (including pets, collars, tags and drugs) and can be anything that is considered not fit for human consumption.  Somehow the protein content still meets the AAFCO requirements for the pet food label.  How can we expect our pets to be healthy when eating such an unnatural diet?  Simply put, we can not.  This type of diet is slowly killing our pets and it is not giving their immune system the support it needs to fight off infections.  We want your pet and ours to thrive, not just exist.

We see pets daily with dry, flaky coats abnormally greasy coats.  We also see dull eyes, infected ears, full anal glands and hot spots.  All of these problems can be the direct result of a lack of proper nutrition.  Time and time again a change in diet has solved all sorts of issues, however diet alone isn’t going to solve all ailments, but it is a good start.

Our goal at ARK Veterinary services is to prevent illness and help give your pet a quality of life for the longest amount of time possible.   Like any good preventative health plan for humans, our pets should also include a healthy whole food diet best suited to their individual needs.

Factors like breed, age, lifestyle, current health and ailments, cost and constitution (Chinese elemental theory) are all incorporated in a food recommendation to compliment your pets’ specific needs.  Dr. Garrett has completed Food Therapy classes at the Chi Institute and uses the knowledge she acquired to utilize food as a natural medicine along with Chinese herbals.

The best diets for both dogs and cats are natural ones.  A rotation of pet food types is the best way to feed.  Dry kibble, wet/moist, and raw, either frozen or freeze-dried are all great choices.   Also, what type of treat you fed is equally as important.  Let us know if you have any questions about what to feed.
