Pet Nutrition & Weight Consultation

Good nutrition is vital for your pet’s health. Because every pet has its own metabolism, activity level, and sensitivity to foods, it is essential to feed based on the needs of the individual pet for optimal body condition and health.

How an animal carries weight is much more valuable than the number on the scale. Being even a little overweight can lead to many problems, including arthritis, diabetes, lung disease, decreased energy, and a shortened lifespan. We will assess and explain your pet’s “body condition score” so you may monitor this at home. Our veterinary team will review your pet’s daily food intake and may recommend a different type or quantity of food to manage their weight and nutrition.

Often, we see food allergies in cats and dogs. We may recommend allergy testing, medication, or a different type of food for your pet. There are many food options, diets, and meal plans available. Our goal is to keep your pet happy and healthy.
