Dogs have different nutritional needs during different stages of their life. Do you know how many calories your pet should have each day and are you comfortable reading and interpreting pet food labels?
During your dog’s wellness exam our veterinarians will discuss your dog’s nutritional needs with you and answer any questions you may have. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for pets during all life stages, including growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your dog has a medical condition, we have prescription diet foods that are formulated specifically for certain health conditions.
Keeping your pet at a healthy weight will prevent health-related illnesses. Overweight pets can have a shorter life-span and also have a higher risk of serious health problems such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and arthritis. We will discuss your dog's nutritional needs to be sure they have a healthy, balanced diet to maintain a healthy weight. Keeping your pet at an optimal weight will keep your pet healthy longer!
