In recent decades, the average life expectancy of domestic dogs and cats has almost doubled, this improvement is due to advances in diagnostics, veterinary medicine and nutrition. Our pets are no longer fed with the waste from our table, but with balanced feeds adapted to their different nutritional needs.As for us humans, also for our animals the nutritional needs vary according to age, weight, shape and physical activity.A correct and balanced diet is essential in order not to run into pathologies that could lead to sometimes even serious diseases.

Animals and humans are at the same risk of getting sick from poor nutrition, but that doesn’t mean that feeding our cats and dogs the same food we eat is the best choice.A grown man needs about 15 percent of calories from proteins (animal or vegetable), an adult dog needs 35 percent (a puppy even more) and for cats they are even 45 percent.It is easy to understand that you are not always able to meet needs so different and varied, through homemade food preparations, first because it is complex to understand what the right caloric intake is that we are giving to our animal through our delicious homemade saucers and, second, it would take a long time to spend in the stove .If then,should we want to fully understand the physiology of our animal and have additional time to devote to it while in the kitchen, we pay great attention to the type of digestion it has, because even in this case each animal can have specific needs. our feline friends must never lack antioxidants, Omega3 fatty acids that help keep the digestive tract healthy and fibers capable of rebalancing the intestinal bacterial flora.In addition to proteins, antioxidants, fatty acids and fibers, vitamins are essential , TAURINE and all those nutrients essential for the well-being of our cat.The same goes for dogs, but in this case we must also pay particular attention to their weight, age and the type of physical activity they carry out.this in fact represents the fundamental point that leads us to choose one type of food rather than another.Growing large dogs could have musculoskeletal and joint problems, so we will have to provide them with feed with a low intake of nutrients, in order to prevent unnecessary acceleration in their growth and preferring instead those that provide proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, fibers, minerals, calcium and phosphorus. frequent meals (the same also applies to puppies).therefore we will have to provide them with feed with a low intake of nutrients, in order to prevent an unnecessary acceleration in their growth and preferring instead those that provide proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, fibers, minerals, calcium and phosphorus. instead a fast metabolism, so they need a lot more energy to take in through small frequent meals (the same goes for puppies too).therefore we will have to provide them with feed with a low intake of nutrients, in order to prevent an unnecessary acceleration in their growth and preferring instead those that provide proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, fibers, minerals, calcium and phosphorus. instead a fast metabolism, so they need a lot more energy to take in through small frequent meals (the same goes for puppies too).
The type of diet to prefer in these cases is that consisting of high quality and digestible proteins, in small portions.In conclusion, if you love your dog or cat and want to spend as much time as possible with them in health and well-being, we recommend you the purchase of feed such as those of Nuova Fattoria that in a balanced way respond to the dietary needs of your pet , because they are made in collaboration with veterinarians and nutritionists.
