Here’s one way to keep your furry best friend healthy and happy in Hong Kong.
It’s no secret that we are huge pet fans here at Sassy HK, with several members of the team having chosen to adopt their own cats and dogs. But having a four-legged friend is a huge commitment, which is why we want to help you navigate taking care of your pet in Hong Kong. After all these animals are reliant on us for their every need (including walking, feeding, healthcare and grooming). And while there’s no shortage of great hiking trails that your dog can accompany you on in this city, perhaps you struggle a bit more when it comes to knowing how to offer them a balanced diet.
Just like humans, pets get hungry. But if you don’t keep a close eye on what they’re eating, it can lead to a range of potential health issues, including obesity and even diabetes. We know it can be stressful trying to decipher all the ins and outs of pet nutrition. And, in a city as fast paced as Hong Kong, we need all the help we can get when navigating the best options! For instance did you know that feeding bones to your dog or cat can actually be quite harmful? That homemade diets typically aren’t balanced for your pet and that foods like chocolate, onions, grapes and raisins are all toxic to them? And that too much oil in their diet can lead to severe health issues like inflammation of the pancreas?
So how can you take some of the stress out of knowing what you should and shouldn’t feed your beloved furry friends? We know there are many options to choose from in Hong Kong when it comes to pet food, so a tailored recommendation from your vet is always a great place to start. Every dog and cat is different, and has unique individual needs when it comes to their nutrition. Ask your vet about ROYAL CANIN, a trusted pet food brand (formulated by board-certified veterinary nutritionists) with more than 50 years’ experience under its belt in tailoring diets for cats and dogs with a wide range of health and lifestyle needs. ROYAL CANIN is available in Hong Kong (which is why we are telling you about it!) and has hundreds of products to choose from to ensure you find the pet food that best suits the specific needs of your animal, depending on its breed, age, lifestyle and health requirements. You can rest assured that not only is ROYAL CANIN nutritionally balanced and produced under strict quality and food safety standards, but that it also has products specially designed to help improve the appearance of your pet’s skin and coat, as well as ones that can lower the risk of urinary issues.You can easily pick up Royal Canin from these stockists across the 852!
