What can I do to keep my dog or cat healthy? When people find out that I am a veterinarian this is usually the first question they ask. Hello, I’m Doctor Bill Barnett. The answer to better health lies in
understanding what it is that can make our pets sick. Once we know what makes
them sick we can begin to defend their health. Pet health is usually defined as
the absence of disease, but I believe we should strive for something more, what I
call optimum health. So what exactly is optimum pet health? In my eyes it is an
active, playful pet with noticeable energy, a lean muscular body, healthy skin
and shiny hair coat, mentally sharp, alert and responsive. All systems of the body
functioning at peak performance a balanced immune system, absent of any clinically defined disease and free of any age-related degenerative disease. There are three primary factors
that determine the health, well-being, and length of life of your pet: they are genetics, environment, and nutrition. We provided videos and articles on all
three topics. Of the three, nutrition is the easiest for most pet owners to
control, and typically offers the fastest and most dramatic results when done right. If you are looking for a good place to start, click on the optimum nutrition link. In the optimum nutrition section you
learn which ingredients in your dog or cat’s food are good, those that can cause problems, and why. We’ve also included my recommendations for products and supplements that ensure a biologically correct diet. I have dedicated my entire life to discovering how to help the animals in our lives achieve the best possbile health. So I am delighted that you are here and that you care enough to take a little time to learn how to help your pet have a longer and happier life.
