With so many options on what to feed your pet and so many people offering advice, let’s discuss pet nutrition with Jessica Joosse, @nutritionrvn , Registered Veterinary Nurse and Animal Nutritionist from Melbourne Australia.
We ask:
-What do cats and dogs need in their diet?
-Can you balance a raw diet?
-What is AAFCO?
-Does the diet need to be consistent?
-What are breed based and lifestyle diets?
-Is kibble in a diet bad?
-Should we feed bones?
-Do good diets need additives?
-Can you feed your pet a vegan, vegetarian or gluten free diet?
-What are prescription diets?
-What can I take out of the ingredient list?
-What treats should I feed?
-Who do I ask for nutritional advice?

Jess’s answer is simple….” don’t ask some random on Facebook!”
