Nutrition is the foundation for excellent health in pets. We believe in feeding unprocessed, whole foods whenever possible. Many underlying disease processes such as urinary disease, obesity, skin disease and chronic ear infections, are as simple as food intolerance or food allergies. Rotating unprocessed meats ensures proper amino acids are consumed (like taurine) and offers a variety of foods for vitamins, minerals and enjoyment. By limiting our pets to one dehydrated and processed food, we are hoping that the proper nutrition is in the bag. We are counting on each pet’s ability to digest and utilize exactly what is needed to be healthy and creating a pet intolerant to other foods, perhaps vomiting frequently from lack of rotation.

With careful guidance from FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital, we believe that human/whole food is the absolute best thing you can do for your pet. Diet is incorporated in every aspect of treatment plans at FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital with consideration for healthy to chronically ill pets.

For cats and dogs, FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital l recommends SmallBatch sold at The Funky Mutt Market. The Simple Food Project dehydrated raw food options are also available. When a whole food diet is not an option, we recommend Nature’s Logic Distinction. All recommended brands can be found at The Funky Mutt Market.

For our bird patients, we recommend Harrison’s Bird Food.

For our exotic mammals FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital recommends Oxbow products (available at FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital)

Every pet’s nutritional needs are different, based on age, breed, health conditions and lifestyle factors—which can make choosing the right pet food complicated. At FloridaWild Veterinary Hospital our veterinarians and staff can take the guesswork out of feeding your pets by advising you about what’s right for your animal.
