The type and amount of food you feed your pet is part of a good nutritional plan for your pet. Proper nutrition can help prevent diet-associated diseases and can assist us in the management of other diseases. During your pet’s wellness exam, we will assess your pet’s body condition score and assist you in formulating the right food program suitable for your pet’s breed, age, weight, medical history and current lifestyle. Our goal is to keep your pet at a healthy weight while providing all of the nutrients he or she needs.
If you are a new pet owner or are considering a pet food change, please talk to us about your pet’s unique nutritional needs before making a food brand choice for your pet.
We do not follow a single dietary program for pets with a “one size fits all” approach. In addition to helping you choose the best type of food for your pet, we will advise you on the correct amount food to feed your pet to keep them healthy and strong.
If your pet is overweight, we will work together to create a nutrition plan that can be successful in helping your pet lose weight. Obesity is a direct cause of many common medical problems such as arthritis, diabetes, liver disease and pancreatitis, many of which may be avoided simply by keeping your pet at a normal weight.
