Nutrition & Diet Counseling
Your pet’s diet is the foundation of your pet’s good health and longevity. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly. In addition, maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight can improve his or her life expectancy. Many gastrointestinal ailments can be linked to inappropriate diets. Skin and ear problems can also be caused by poor nutrition or food-based allergies.
By assessing your pet’s history and current health conditions, we can assist you in keeping your pet healthy and active. If your pet has a chronic medical condition, we may recommend feeding your pet one of a variety of prescription diets tailored for pets. For pets that are currently healthy we offer advice on selecting a high quality, non-prescription food from the stores where you shop.
If you pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. Speaking with us is the first place to start. For some pets, feeding a diet formulated for weight loss and carefully selecting lower calories treats can help. Increasing exercise as appropriate for your pet may be helpful. Most often, simply learning the correct volume of food to offer works wonders.
