Nutrition Counseling

Nutritional Counseling for Dogs, Cats, Ferrets, Birds, Exotic Pets, and Pocket Pets

“You are what you eat” applies to pets as well as us, and proper nutrition is an important factor for your pet’s overall well-being. There are many options available in the stores for what to feed your pets, and our veterinary team wants to help you navigate the marketing and make the best decision for your family.

Our veterinarians provide nutritional counseling to our clients and can recommend dietary changes based on your pet’s condition and physical needs. Pets who are struggling with weight management, arthritis, diseases, old age, and more may be candidates for a diet change. Proper nutrition is an important factor for all pets’ overall well-being as well. Many diseases can be maintained or controlled with a specific line of prescription foods. Feeding certain diets can also mean giving less medication to your pet! We’ll be happy to consult with you and make our recommendations for your pet’s needs.

When selecting a food, remember that pets need a well-balanced diet. Choosing a food that that provides both quality ingredients and quality manufacturing processes can help to prevent obesity, diabetes, and other disease processes. If your pet has already been diagnosed with a disease, feeding the proper diet can help manage that disease, and can even lower the amount of medication your pet needs.
