Nutrition; Science or Art

I remember way back in grade school they combined our art and science class due to budget cuts at the time I thought it was a very odd pairing.  I don’t ever remember getting a real answer, or maybe I just never understood the answer.  In art we were expected to add or subtract elements until we felt it was right and in science we were expected to be very precise to get the correct answer. 

Well I finally understand, art and science are not mutually exclusive.  Especially when it comes to things like nutrition which is both a science and an art. On the science side we have our understanding of vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) and fats, proteins and carbs (macronutrients)  how they affect the body. And on the art side we figure out the balance of both macro and micronutrients for a particular body.  Yes I know I can hear you yelling, but there are equations to figure that out, and you’re right there are but not every body will behave the same when subjected to the same things.

So there you have it not every fur baby will react the same and you must find the right balance for your fur baby.   I know that sounds scary and overwhelming but don’t worry I’m here to help you along. For free no less.
