Everyone wants a healthy family, and that extends to our feathered, finned, and furry family members—our pets. In partnership with MSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the MSU Extension Service offers research-based information on routine pet care, specialized treatment, and what to do in the case of natural or manmade disasters.
My pets are part of the family, and I want them to have a healthy diet. There are many choices when it comes to what to feed your pet, and I always discuss this with my veterinarian when I add a pet to the family and at each pet’s check-up.
