Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining your pet's overall health. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly and maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight can improve his or her life expectancy. Many gastrointestinal ailments can be linked to inappropriate diets and most skin problems have a nutritional component to them. We will evaluate your pet’s nutritional status and make specific recommendations regarding proper nutrition. For pets that are currently healthy we offer advice on selecting a high quality, non-prescription food from the stores where you shop. If your pet has a medical condition that could benefit from a special diet, we carry a variety of prescription diets tailored for your pet and the medical condition. If your pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. 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. We will discuss your pet’s weight with you at your annual wellness exam and develop an appropriate weight loss plan if one is necessary.
