Nutrition & Weight Management

Have you figured out what pet food is best for your animal friend?

Choosing a pet food is about much more than just what tastes good. It’s about what will best meet your companion’s individual nutritional needs. The right diet and a healthy weight can keep your pet happy and fit. It can even help manage a number of existing medical conditions, improving quality of life. The problem is, choosing from so many different products can be challenging. Thankfully, with the right team in your corner, it doesn’t have to be.

A Proper Diet

Figuring out which food would best suit your pet depends on what his or her specific needs happen to be. Every animal is different, and a diet that works great for one may be completely ineffective for another. Our nutritional evaluation involves a thorough physical examination and an analysis of your pet’s health and lifestyle. We will take into consideration your companion’s current weight as well as species, breed, age and any existing medical problems. With this information in hand, we can then develop a diet that is optimized to support your pet’s wellbeing.

A Healthy Weight

Next on the agenda is your pet’s weight. Animals who are overweight may look adorable, but those extra pounds could be placing them at a serious health risk. Similarly, pets who don’t weigh as much as they should may be more likely to get sick or suffer an injury. The key is to identify what weight range would be healthiest for your pet and then come up with a strategy to achieve that goal.

Ongoing Maintenance

As the years pass, your companion’s dietary needs will naturally evolve. To accommodate these changes, we will revisit our plan at certain intervals and make any necessary adjustments. For instance, when your pet transitions from adolescence to adulthood and then into the senior years, we’ll be ready to address those needs. The goal is to help your pet maintain his or her optimum health and fitness levels through every life stage.

Still have questions? We’d love to help eliminate some of the confusion surrounding diet and exercise and point you both in the right direction. Let our experienced pet nutritionists develop a customized plan to keep your loved one in tip-top shape. Reach out to us today to get started!
