Animal Pain Awareness Month

Animals can be very good at hiding pain - and there can be nothing more upsetting for a pet parent to know that your four-legged friend may be hurting. But how can you know, and what can you do about it? Read on to find out, and if and how your pet's diet can help!

Just remember, your pet's diet is not a substitution for a vet visit. If your pet isn't eating or drinking, has sudden weight loss, labored breathing, or other serious symptoms, contact your vet immediately.

Symptoms of a Bad Diet

Have you ever improved your diet and felt better afterwards? Maybe more energized, more awake, happier, or relief from indigestion? The same thing can be true for your pets! While a good diet cannot help all symptoms, there are some that it definitely can, such as:

  • Itchy skin & dandruff
  • Indigestion
  • Inconsistent Bowel Movements & Flatulence
  • Fur Loss & Shedding
  • Joint Pain
  • Obesity
  • Increased Allergies
  • Frequent Infections

What Can a Bad Diet Lead To?

A bad diet can have negative consequences for your pet's health and cause them to be in pain - just like us! Some of these consequences can include:

  • Congestive heart failure - Excessive salt in the diet can severely increase your pet's chances of developing or exacerbating congestive heart failure.
  • Growth disorders - Animals who receive too much or too little calcium during their formative stages may develop abnormal rates of bone growth and joint disease.
  • Kidney disease - Kidney disease can be exacerbated by a number of nutritional imbalances, including excessive amounts of sodium, potassium, or phosphorus, as well as dehydration.
  • Obesity - Obesity can be caused by either eating too much overall or by eating food that is improperly balanced for your dog’s circumstances (e.g. too high in fats and carbohydrates and too low in protein).
  • Pancreatitis - Characterized by an inflamed pancreas, this condition is often triggered by excessive fats in the diet.

There's no reason that your pet should suffer from the consequences of a bad diet. Pet Wants was founded for EXACTLY this reason!

Unlike other mysterious illnesses or problems your furry companions may have or acquire that require expensive vet visits or tricky trial-and-error to give them relief, correcting their diet is an easy no-brainer and the payoff is huge.

Oh, and did we mention that none of our foods contain wheat, soy, corn, added sugar, artificial colors, or animal-by-products?

Because they don’t. EVER.

These and other non-nutritional filler ingredients do nothing for your pet's health, and can even have negative effects such as indigestion and allergies. Our food contains only the nutrients your pet needs, and nothing that would not benefit them. This lends to less feeding, and happier pets!
