All animals require sufficient food, of the right type/s, and at the right intervals to ensure good health and growth. This will obviously vary considerably from animal to animal, for example, dogs usually have diets with a high meat component, some birds will have diets high in seeds, some birds may require such things as insects or meal worms, rabbits and guinea pigs may be fed on grasses and vegetable scraps, while reptiles may be fed with live food (eg. mice, frogs).
While understanding what types of food your animals require is very important, it is also important that you understand differing food requirements at different stages of their life (eg. young versus mature animals, or whilst pregnant or feeding young).
To ensure the best health of your animals, only use good quality food that has been properly stored (ie. it has not perished or become mouldy, or infested with pests).
