We all understand that nutrition plays a big part in our general health and wellbeing. However, did you know that the appearance of your dog or cat’s skin and hair reflects both the state of health and the quality of its diet?
The skin is the largest organ of the body, and the cells of the skin turn over rapidly. For most pets, virtually all of the skin is covered with hair, which is either being shed regularly or, in non-shedding breeds, is growing constantly. In order to maintain the skin and hair in a healthy state, your pet requires a properly balanced diet with highly digestible proteins, carbohydrates, fats, minerals and vitamins, and the appropriate calorie content.
