Factors Used to Determine Diet
Whether you are a new patient with us or you have just gotten a new dog or cat, we are happy to consult with you about your pet’s dietary needs. Just like humans, all pets should be evaluated on an individual basis in order to ensure they are eating the diet that is best for them.
In order to properly make recommendations, we consider the following factors:
- Your pet’s relative weight and whether they are overweight or underweight
- Pre-existing health conditions such as diseases, diabetes, etc.
- Whether your pet is spayed, neutered or intact
- The type of lifestyle that they live whether it is active or calmer
- Whether or not there are other animals in the household
Once we have properly evaluated the above factors, we will be able to make recommendations on your pet’s nutritional needs. Our goal is to provide recommendations on a diet that will support your pet’s lifestyle and needs and ultimately extend their life as long as possible. After all, the most important part of having a pet is the ability to spend quality time with them!
Benefits of Nutritional Counseling
There are many positive benefits that could result from the proper diet for your pet. Our pet owners often report back that their pet is at a healthier weight, has seen an increase in mobility, a reduction in allergies, healthier skin or coat, allergy relief, better breath and an overall longer lifespan.
