Feeding Your Pet

Dogs

The first ingredient listed in any dog food should be a specified meat. If the first ingredient listed is a wheat, corn, meat by-product, or bone meal then this dog food should be avoided. Dogs’ teeth are primarily made up of canines which are designed for shredding meat, not grinding grains.

Dogs should be kept on the same brand and type of food as much as possible. Regularly changing them could cause him to have an upset stomach. If you do have to change, try and introduce the new food gradually so that your dog's digestive system has a chance to adjust.
 

Cats

To cats, the odor of their food is particularly important, and they prefer their food to be around body temperature when they consume it. Glass or ceramic bowls do not absorb externals odors and are the best choice for feeding. They also like to be able to see their surroundings when they eat and not backed into a corner.

Cats naturally prefer grazing on small meals and so dry food free-feeding is often the most popular choice for mealtimes.
Protein and fats are the most palatable types of food for cats and they much prefer the texture of meat to anything else.
 

Rabbits

Rabbits need at least one bunny-sized bundle of hay every day. Accompany this with a handful of washed leafy green vegetables or herbs such as kale, lettuce, broccoli, sage, or mint. Try and offer variety to ensure your rabbit gets a good mix of nutrients.
Lawnmower clippings are NOT safe for your rabbit to eat.

When choosing pellets, opting for good quality is important. As a general rule you should feed your rabbit one eggcup of pellets per kg of your rabbit's’ weight. For example, if you rabbit weighs 1kg then you should only give them one eggcup of pellets every day.
Do not give your rabbit muesli!

Treats for rabbits should be infrequent and limited to carrots and apples.
