saugus pet nutrition tips


Do you know why a balanced diet is important for your favorite pet?

Just as we have a food pyramid, cats and dogs need certain nutrients daily in order to be happy and healthy. The Global Nutrition Committee, founded in 2010, tasks itself with developing global nutrition guidelines to help veterinary healthcare teams and pet owners ensure that dogs and cats are on an optimal nutrition plan tailored to the animal’s individual needs.

There are thousands of resources on the Internet – many of them are helpful and can provide you with good information.  However, most sites should not be read and then taken as gospel. The information provided by the Global Nutrition Committee help us at Saugus Animal Hospital to counsel you regarding your pet’s nutritional needs. If you have questions, please feel free to ask us. You may also use the links provided below as additional resources to become an even savvier cat or dog owner!
