During your cat’s wellness exam our veterinarians will discuss your cat’s nutritional needs with you and answer any questions you may have. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for cats during various life stages including growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we have specially-formulated cat foods made specifically for some types of chronic illnesses.
