How to Choose the Right Pet Food

Whether you have a new pet or the pet you’ve loved for years, caring for your friend properly ensures many happy years together. As you care for your pet, even the little things – perfectly selected food, exercise and love – can make a big difference. We want to be a part of your companion’s happy, healthy life, so we’re here to share information on proper nutrition, fitness and special needs.

Knowing the age of your pet is important in choosing their nutrition. If you have an animal and aren’t sure of his exact age, your veterinarian can help estimate that for you.




San Miguel Veterinary Clinic recommends the same top food brand recommended by the

American Veterinary Medical Association-

Hill’s® products which include many different formulas for the many different dogs their foods provide proper nourishment for. These formulas are included in their Science Diet, Ideal Balance, Healthy Advantage, and Prescription Diet lines which also include formulas that are grain free and other specialty diets. The Hill’s brand was originally established by a veterinarian back in the 1960s making it a well trusted brand that has been around for a very long time.

They make every bag of dry dog food in U.S. facilities with high quality natural ingredients from North America, Europe and lamb from New Zealand. These ingredients must meet strict requirements for purity and nutrient content, which often exceed industry standards. At Hill’s the goal is to create the best dog and cat foods possible for our pets, and yours.
