Say ‘YES’ to Variety Feeding
A New Way of Eating to Promote
Healthy Balanced Nutrition for Your Pets
What is Variety Feeding?At Addiction, we encourage pet owners to introduce a variety of different types of food regularly while feeding their pets. This would mean feeding a good balance of commercial foods and fresh foods. Pet owners can also introduce different protein sources into your pet’s diet in a gradual manner as with all new foods. Variety feeding is to help ensure that your pet consumes a good range of proteins, vitamins and minerals to attain a balanced diet for optimal health as no one food is able to provide all the nutrients your pet needs. Thus, variety feeding is suitable and recommended for all dogs and cats of all life stages.
What are the Benefits of Variety Feeding?Besides providing a more balanced diet, feeding a variety of commercial and fresh foods has also been proven successful in combating allergies your pet may have. While there are rare cases of allergies occurring immediately, most common allergies occur when a pet is fed on one kind of food continuously, and eventually develops hypersensitivity to a specific protein source. Varying the diet prevents overexposure to any particular food and reduces the risk of allergies. By doing this, you may also have fewer problems if you need to change your pet’s diet at some point of time.
