Digestive health is important for you and your pets [Infographic]

Pets, like humans, need a well-rounded diet full of vegetables, premium proteins and vitamins. Buying your pets high-quality food should help ensure they receive all the nutrients they need. But if pets aren’t digesting that food correctly, they may as well be eating low-quality food with the inexpensive fillers you’ve been trying to avoid.

“Research shows 70 percent of a pet’s immune system lies in the digestive tract,” says Dr. Al Townshend, staff veterinarian for WellPet, makers of high-quality, natural pet food. “Proper digestion and a healthy digestive tract are essential to maintaining whole body health. If a pet’s digestive tract isn’t in peak condition it can prevent the nutrients in food from digesting properly and lead to a number of different illnesses.”

To ensure your pet’s digestive tract is working properly, look for a high-quality, natural food with a digestive health support system that includes probiotics, prebiotics, natural fibers and digestive enzymes, like Holistic Select Natural Pet Food.
