How To Find Healthy and Affordable Pet Food in Southern California

Ensuring adequate nutrition for your furry friend(s) is of the utmost importance to his/her long-term health, vitality, and well-being. To do so, you need to take into consideration key factors such as your pet’s age, activity level ( very active or couch potato?), reproduction status ( for females), as well as any food allergies and special dietary needs ( e.g. if your pet suffers from a chronic gastrointestinal disorder like chronic pancreatitis, he/she needs to be fed low-fat foods for life). Lactating mothers and puppies/kittens require a lot more calories per day and higher protein levels than senior pets.

One of the main advantages of choosing high-quality commercial pet food over homemade, cooked food is that you can easily check the nutritional value of a product. Natural, holistic, and raw pet foods are the best choices when looking to buy healthy, balanced, and complete products for your dog or cat. If you live in Southern California, you can take advantage of the presence of a Centinela Feed and Pet Supplies store near you to find the best healthy foods for your pet(s). The established Southern California pet store has been in business for over 40 years and offers only the highest quality but affordably-priced, holistic, natural, and raw pet foods at its 18 locations.

Shopping in-store is preferred by many pet owners who want to benefit from the assistance of knowledgeable and experienced staff, but if you prefer to buy online from the comfort of your own home, be sure to read the ingredients and guaranteed analysis ( moisture, protein, fat, fiber, vitamins, etc), whether you want to order dry pet food, canned food, freeze-dried food, raw food, etc. It’s best to choose products from natural, holistic, and/or raw pet food brands that adhere to the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO)’s nutritional standards – these products have an AAFCO statement on their packaging.

You can find a wide variety of top-quality foods for your dog and cat to fit his/her specific dietary needs and preferences, at the best prices in Southern California when you choose to shop in your local Centinela Feed & Pet Supplies store or online at centinelafeed.com. The reputable pet store also offers curbside pickup ( be sure to call the store in your local area for details or fill out the online contact form) as well as a range of in-store services including dog training services, anesthesia-free teeth cleaning services ( breath savers), and even dog self-wash using Earthbath’s all-natural, hypoallergenic products.
