We all want what is best for our beloved feline and canine companions because they aren’t just loyal friends; they’re bona fide members of the family. Since our fur-babies are at our mercy when it comes to their health and well-being, we have to be sure to meet their nutritional needs — which means feeding them right. As far as pet food is concerned, you have many, many options to choose from. Whether your dog or cat prefers dry or canned food, your priority as a pet owner is to give your furry companion the nutrition he or she needs to carry out a long, happy life.

To help you select the right pet food for your dog or cat, the veterinary team here at Sunset has provided the following pointers.


Our pets’ nutritional needs vary depending on age, size, species and health conditions. Older pets need to eat different food than younger pets, less-active pets need different food than active pets, small-breed animals require nutritional content different from large-breed animals, and the list goes on. At the end of the day, you want to buy cat or dog food that is formulated to meet your companion’s specific dietary needs.


Pet food labels provide valuable insight into the quality of the food. When selecting a nutritious pet food for your trusty companion, pay close attention to the: nutritional adequacy statement, listing of ingredients, guaranteed analysis and feeding directions.


Pet food should have a nutritional adequacy claim somewhere on its packaging that tells you either the pet food “is formulated to meet or exceed the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO nutritional profiles” or “Animal feeding tests using AAFCO procedures substantiate that the pet food provides complete and balanced nutrition” for the life stage of your animal. An extra layer of protection may be found with pet food brands that say they have been through AAFCO feeding trials. Further, a food with a label that says it is for intermittent or supplemental feedings should only be used long term when directed by a veterinarian.
