Imagine feeding a baby the same food that you eat?
Much like infants, kittens and puppies have special nutritional needs - from the amount of calories they take in to the nutrients they need for healthy development.

With many puppies and kittens born in the spring, this is a season when a number of Canadians will be celebrating both the arrival of warmer weather and a new family member to share it with.

Welcoming a new puppy or kitten into your life brings a few challenges, a lot of learning and many wonderful moments. It's important to get your new pet off to the right start with food that's precisely balanced with nutrients that promote a long, happy and healthy life.

Puppies, for example, require food with increased amounts of energy, protein and calcium compared to adult dogs. Kittens also require more energy than their adult counterparts, as well as added taurine and other critical nutrients for proper growth and development. In addition, both puppies and kittens need a food enhanced with DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid), a natural Omega-3 fatty acid, which is essential in the development of the brain and nervous system.

As your kitten or puppy grows into adult and mature life stages, their nutritional needs will continue to change, which is why it's so important to choose a pet food that is formulated specifically for the right life stage.

Other things to consider when choosing a pet food are your pet's weight, environment, level of exercise and heredity. Whatever your pet's life stage, lifestyle or health needs, Hill's® Science Diet® is there for you and your pet every step of the way. With a complete line of precisely balanced, specially formulated nutrition, you can feel confident that your pet's specific and changing needs will always be met.
