Summer has now arrived with the long sunny and hot days that characterize it.
Especially in these months we must pay particular attention to the correct nutrition of our pets.


What often happens to us in the warmer months is the same thing that happens to our animals, less appetite and constant risk of dehydration.
We therefore pay particular attention to the fact that our dogs and cats always have a nice bowl full of fresh water available , especially if they are puppies or elderly, but also animals that are overweight or have particular pathologies, such as kidney disease or diarrhea and vomiting, run the risk of becoming dehydrated quickly.

Proper nutrition will allow our four-legged friends to survive this season without consequences and in full health.

We at Nuova Fattoria Pet Food have developed a line of ” SUPREME LIGHT “ dog food and ” SUPREME CAT STERILIZED “ feed for cats which, due to their nutritional and organoleptic characteristics, are suitable for guaranteeing the right amount of protein, vitamins and minerals, ensuring however a lower caloric intake (compared to our other dry feeds).

If you want, especially in these summer months, you can add meat or fish broth (homemade) to our feed, in order to guarantee a higher hydration of the animal.

As for dogs, a suggestion that we would like to give you is to add cooked vegetables such as carrots, green beans, peas and spinach to the usual diet.

You can also give it some fruit, but pay particular attention to the amount of sugar contained in some fruits as it can be very high, difficult for the dog to digest, and even toxic in case of large quantities.

The most suitable fruits for a dog’s diet are: apple, pear, blueberries, watermelon, melon and strawberries.

ATTENTION , however, because in the dog’s diet fruit and vegetables with respect to meat must never exceed the maximum percentage of 10/15%.

A normal weight and healthy dog ​​or cat is the result of a healthy life made up of movement and psychomotor stimuli, proper nutrition and periodic visits by a trusted veterinarian.
