Making dietary decisions

Maybe, between you and your partner, you eat one way and he eats another. You don’t think too much about it. Perhaps you’d like him to lay off the beer and red meat. But, ultimately, he’s an adult in charge of his body, as you are yours. But once you have a pet, you care deeply about its well-being, and diet is a big part of that. You and your partner will have to decide on the best diet for your pet. Raw? Plant-based? Mostly fish? Kibble? Wet food? Is human food ever allowed? Do you allow those crappy but yummy fake bacon treats in the house? Diet impacts one’s overall health. It’s the same for pets and kids, and it’s something you’ll need to get used to discussing with your partner if you want to have children down the line.
