Food provides the nutrition upon which your puppy or kitten will grow. Therefore, we recommend feeding only the highest-quality food available. Our preferred hospital diet is Hill’s Science Diet® puppy or kitten food. Hill’s has done industry leading research into the proper balance of ingredients that will provide optimum growth for your puppy or kitten. We also strongly recommend that you closely monitor your new pet to ensure that they are not becoming overweight. Although free-feeding is the easiest, and may work well for many pets, there are some animals that need to be meal-fed, otherwise they will become obese.
