FAQs: Pet Food

It is important to your pet’s long term health to feed a nutritious diet. Cosmopawlitan can help you make the right choices.

Q: How do I decide which food is best for my pet?

A: There are a few things to ask yourself when selecting a pet food. What breed is your pet? How old is your pet? What is your pet’s activity level? Does your pet have any sensitivities, allergies or medical conditions? Each of these will help determine what food your pet will thrive on.

Q: Dry food vs. Wet food?

A: Wet and dry foods offer different benefits to your pet, all of which are essential to your pet’s well-being. Therefore a mixture of both dry and wet food is recommended.

Q: How do I switch pet foods?
A: The proper way to switch your pet from the food they are eating now to a new food is to do it gradually over a few days to a few weeks (depending on how finicky your pet is). During the transition period, progressively add more of the new food to the old food starting from a ratio of 1:4 (new to old) until he/she is consuming only the new food.

For more information on selecting a healthy food for your pet, visit us seven days a week and we will be happy to help you.

We hope to see you soon!

Some Halloween Pet Tips:
1) If your pet is alright with wearing a costume, make sure it’s not on too loose or too tight, or restricting vision. Do not leave your costumed pet unsupervised.
2) Keep human goodies away from your pets! Chocolate is toxic to dogs, cats and ferrets.
3) Keep candy wrappers away too!
4) Make sure your pets are wearing ID tags, in case they escape from your care for any reason.
