Dog and Cat Nutritional Information

Pets need to eat various nutrients in order to keep them healthy. These can be provided from a range of ingredients.

There is a large variety of petfoods available on the market and they all aim to meet the pet’s nutritional needs.

Pet foods can be classified into two groups:

  • Complete: These are nutritionally complete, providing all the nutrients that the pet reqiures.
  • Complementary: These foods are designed to be a part of the diet; they do not meet the nutritional requirements when fed alone, therefore they must be fed along with an additional food type. All complementary foods are labelled as such with appropriate feeding guidelines.
