À propos

You are what you eat - and that goes for animals too. Like us, they may prefer to gorge on treats rather than get the good stuff down. It’s our job to make sure our pets eat the right nutrients to keep them healthy, fit, and strong.

This course shows you what’s great and what’s not good for animals to eat, the diets of different animals, and their needs from dogs to terrapins. You'll start to understand different food groups, types of diets, and the importance of reading and understanding food labels by reading the small print.

Learn what carnivores, herbivores, and omnivores like to eat and how their digestion differs. Discover the nutritional needs for when your pets are young, adult, and senior animals. Find out about their feeding habits, what to feed your pet to keep them healthy, and how often they should be fed. You'll also get tips on how to cope with faddy eaters.

In this course, you'll know what to do if your pet has a weight problem and, conversely, ways to encourage weight gain if need be. When your pet is sick or is diagnosed with a long-term condition, they could need a special diet to help build them up. You'll get to know about any allergies or intolerance to certain foods and hypoallergenic diets.

We all want to do what’s best for our animals, especially when it comes to what they eat. This course opens up all the options, so you can make an informed choice about their diet.
