We debunk 6 myths about pet nutrition

Discover some strange and potentially harmful myths about the nutrition of your furry friends and learn how to feed them correctly.

Are artificial sweeteners or natural sugar more harmful for your pet? How much damage can a few drops of alcohol do? How healthy is the food you buy for your pets?

Homemade food – NO

The American Veterinary Association has announced that it is not recommended to feed pets the food we prepare for ourselves. The digestive tract of animals is different, unique and very complicated. Food for dogs and cats has been tested and it is known exactly how it affects their organism, while this has not been proven for human food.


“Our” food makes them bloated

If you feed your pet the same foods that you eat, including dairy products, soy products, and spicy foods, you can create a problem, because these foods bloat your pet, which causes gas, which is not comfortable for them or you.

Adult dogs and cats are in most cases lactose intolerant, so avoid milk.

Natural and organic

Organic food is a subgroup of natural food, whatever you buy for your pet with these labels, you won’t go wrong.



Even the smallest doses of alcohol can cause big problems for your dog, don’t play with these things.

Food with and from fish

Cat food that says it contains fish means that the food contains only 3% fish meat, and if it says that the food is made from fish, it means that it contains as much as 95% fish meat and is therefore healthier and better for your cat.

Sugar or artificial sweetener

Sugar is certainly not good for your pets, but artificial sweeteners are worse. Artificial sweeteners are found in many products that we use every day, chewing gum, mouthwash, candy, which can be very toxic to your pets, so keep them away from these products.
