Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining your pet's good health. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly. Maintaining your pet's ideal body weight can improve his or her life expectancy. Many gastrointestinal ailments can be linked to inappropriate diets, and many skin problems have a nutritional component to them.

If you pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. For some pets, feeding a diet formulated for weight loss and carefully selecting lower calories treats can help. Increasing exercise as appropriate for your pet may be helpful. Most often, simply learning the correct volume of food to offer works wonders.
