Pet Food Safety

As a naive young veterinarian and pet owner I was until very recently under the impression that commercial pet food had to be safe for pet consumption.  The pet food industry is in fact self-regulated under the Pet Food Industry Association of Australia Code of Practice, however, pet meat producers do not operate under the same regulations.  (How could I be so silly as to think that pet meat was pet food?)
Disappointingly pet meat can legally contain levels of preservatives that cause serious clinical disease in our pets.  Even those foods that meet Australian standards are not necessarily tested to ensure they are safe and complete.
At Bendigo Animal Hospital we are happy to discuss appropriate nutrition for your pet.  We have a new range of diets in clinic that provide preventative nutritional support.  Hill's VetEssentials is a range of premium pet food that supplies a superior complete diet for your pet.  These scientifically backed foods have added benefits to aid healthy digestion, manage your pet's weight, keep adult teeth healthy, provide all the nutrients for superior skin and coat health as well as providing your dogs with nutritional support for their joints and providing your cats with a diet appropriate to maintain bladder health.
Feeding a clinically proven diet of the best quality provides peace of mind that you are providing your pet with the nutritional support for a healthy, happy life.

  11. Private Health List insurance companies stemmed from the public's need for financial assistance in cases of general medical emergencies. The concept of health insurance is collectivism - it collects each individual's small monetary contributions into a pool which can be readily used in case of a person/s medical need.

  14. It seems to me that, humanity is losing faith on pursuing total health.

Such cowardly approach and attitude can not be rewarded with insight on human triumph over sicknesses and diseases. While seeking for better ways in relieving the sick and the diseased, we should not fail to embark on continuous research, so as to uncover the truth which will cbd vape oil uk empower humans to triumph over sicknesses and diseases.

  15. It is vitally important that commercial truck drivers have some type of medical care plan due to the high rate of illnesses and injuries that they sustain. Most commercial truck drivers health is not the best and could be improved through better food choices. Typically, many truckers diets consist of far too many unhealthy food choices. SRS GLOBE
