Considering pets cannot verbally communicate we should ideally be more understanding and receptive to their needs, requirements and health.
Over the time people have learnt that homemade food albeit fresh is not a complete and balanced meal for the pet primarily because the nutrition requirements differ from humans.

They are more often taken to veterinary doctors not just when they are unwell but for overall annual health check-ups.
