A healthy, well-balanced diet is as important for your pet as it is for you. Studies show that pets that eat a premium, high-quality diet live a longer and more active life. VCA PetCare believes in the importance of regular, adequate exercise to help your pet maintain a healthy weight. A pet that is fit and sleek can enjoy his or her senior years with a decreased risk of such problems as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease. Please talk to your doctor about the diet and exercise plan that best fits your pet throughout his or her life.
