We Help You Understand Your Pet’s Nutritional Needs

Two Things, More Than Anything Else, Impact Your Pet’s Health:

  • Activity
  • Food

Puppies and kittens

Feeding your pet the appropriate diet is one of the most important decisions that you can make as a pet owner. There are many food options available for you to choose from which can be overwhelming. We can help.

Here Are Some Of The Different Reasons Why Your Pet Needs An Individualized Nutritional Assessment:

  • Puppies and kittens have different nutritional needs than an adult dog or cat. This can also depend on the breed of your pet.
  • Pregnant/lactating dogs or cats also need specialized nutrition to help support them as they care for their young.
  • Your senior pet may require different nutritional needs than in previous years.

Our veterinarians and staff will help you make sure that you are providing the best nutritional support for your pet no matter which stage of life he or she is currently living.

There are also prescription diets that we can recommend to help us manage diseases like diabetes, liver and kidney disease, urinary stones, food allergies, and joint disease just to name a few.

An overweight cat

We can also help you with a program to get an overweight pet down to a healthy weight, which is an important health consideration for all pet owners. Sometimes, just a few more walks per week or a couple more blocks per walk could make all the difference for the health of your pet.

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 54% of the nation’s dogs and cats are overweight. Overweight pets face many health risks, a few of which include:

  • Diabetes
  • Skeletal stress
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Cardiac disease

What food we choose to feed our pets is the single most important decision we make toward maintaining a healthy lifestyle for your pets. We can help you make informed decisions on the proper diet for your pet. If there’s an underlying medical problem contributing to your pet’s obesity, we can address these as well.
