Nutrition & Weight Management

Do you choose your pet’s food based on what the package looks like?

If you answered yes to that question, you’re most certainly not alone. The problem is, not all pet food is created equal. What you feed your pet can mean the difference between simply surviving and enjoying a full, vibrant life. You want what’s best for your animal family member, and so do we. That’s why we’re happy to offer nutritional counseling and weight management services to keep our patients well.

From your pet’s very first days through the golden years, nutrition plays a critical role in his or her overall health and wellbeing. Additionally, your companion’s nutritional needs will change with age and activity level. It’s important that we develop a diet that effectively meets these needs every step of the way. Furthermore, specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. We can evaluate your pet and provide recommendations for what food would be the best fit.

We’ll also take the time to ensure that your pet’s weight remains at a healthy level. This is important because overweight animals can be more susceptible to a number of serious medical conditions. Likewise, pets who don’t weigh enough can have weakened immune systems, which can place them at risk for illness or injury. To avoid this, we will evaluate your pet to determine his or her ideal weight. From there we will work with you to come up with a strategy for achieving that goal and maintaining it over time.

Once we’ve got a plan in place, we will revisit our approach at various intervals throughout your pet’s life. This will allow us to continue to meet your companion’s health care needs through each stage of life for optimum results.

Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to lose (or gain) a few pounds, we’re here to help. Don’t play a guessing game with your pet’s nutrition. Let us point you in the right direction. Contact us today to get started!
