Nutritional Counseling

“You are what you eat” is a popular expression regarding diet. This applies to our pets as well. There is so much mis-information out there, it is hard to decipher the good from the bad. Some examples of the latest trends include: grain free diets, BARF diets, high fiber diets, all natural diets, raw diets, rotational protein diets, etc. etc.

We can help you navigate through all this confusion and provide a nutritional program for your pet.

Another big problem with our pets is “excess baggage”. Being overweight and trying to stay in shape is not only a problem for people. It is estimated that 30 to 40% of pets are overweight. We can help your pet achieve optimum weight with a specific diet and nutrition program.

By keeping your pet on a proper diet and workout plan, an increase in their life span by up to 2-3 years can be the benefit. In addition to the extended life expectancy, you will also see a happier pet with fewer stomach issues, less sensitive skin and a nicer coat.

Prescription Diets

There are many different types of food available for your pet, and each has its own benefits. You should ask your vet which particular food is best for your pet. The food your pet eats depends on their age, size, breed as well as other factors. If your pet has a health condition such as kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, stomach ailments, or obesity there are prescription diets available to help them combat their ailment. Your vet has extensive knowledge on this subject and can prescribe the best food for your pet.
