Ask a Vet Archive

When it comes to your pet's health, there's no such thing as a dumb question. Search questions real clients have submitted to our popular Ask a Vet Q&A series, and then submit a question of your own.

  • I just adopted a younger dog and there are so many options I'm not sure what I should be feeding him. Can you help? What should I feed my dog?

    A high quality canine diet is essential for proper growth and development of your young dog, and for the maintenance of a happy, healthy adult. Table food, human foods, scraps and cat food are not adequate to maintain the long term health of your canine companion.

    Given the huge number of foods available, choosing the proper diet in the right amounts for your dog can be a very confusing experience. Your pet's age, overall health, exercise level, environment and breed can all be factors to consider in choosing the right diet. Consult your veterinarian for valuable advice on the best diet for your canine friend, or use our Nutrition Hub to find some feeding recommendations specific to your unique pet.
