Pet Diet Designer Overview

Pet Diet Designer for Windows is a software program that lets you create complete and balanced meals for your cat or dog. Pet Diet Designer takes the complexity out of pet nutrition. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) states that "pet nutrition is very complicated and unique to species and individual animals." The AVMA does not recommend homemade pet food because of this. 

The March 1, 2008 issue of the AVMA's Journal contains an article which highlighted some disturbing trends:

  • Dogs fed home-prepared diets had a greater prevalence of health problems.
  • Many home-prepared diets are not nutritionally balanced and can result in such complications as thiamine deficiency, thyroid disease, loss of bone density, and neurological deficits.
  • Cats fed homemade diets are at high risk for an inflammatory condition called pansteatitis (a disease caused by a diet high in polyunsaturated fats and low in Vitamin E).
  • Homemade raw meat diets present a significant risk of bacterial contamination.]

In the spring of 2007, pet owners were hit with the largest pet food recall in history. Hundreds of pets died and thousands of pets were critically injured. This was a turning point for the consumer. Many pet owners joined the millions of people who have successfully been feeding homemade pet food all their lives.

Pet Diet Designer was born out of the need to solve this problem. Pet owners can now prepare complete and balanced meals that are tailor-made for each individual pet to the highest standard in pet nutrition that currently exists. And it is so easy to do!

Pet Diet Designer does all the complicated nutrient calculations for you. You just concentrate on preparing wholesome, delicious meals that your pets will drool over.

By using Pet Diet Designer you can ensure that your cat is getting a diet that is just right in polyunsaturated fats and Vitamin E. You can create meals with balanced nutrition so your dog has a reduced prevalence of health problems caused by inadequate or poorly balanced nutrients. Pet Diet Designer will also help you manage your pet's weight if they happen to be obese or overweight.

Pet Diet Designer does so much more than just creating meals or managing weight. Download it to find out! Pet Diet Designer for Windows will be available to download soon! You must be a registered member to download the software and updates. Registration is free!
