VCA County West Animal Hospital offers prescription diets and nutrition counseling as needed during office visits.
Why is this important? Pets are living longer, healthier lives than ever before and a big part of that is due to our expanded knowledge of the importance of proper nutrition to overall health. In fact, nutrition is the biggest health variable controlled by a pet's caregiver.
During your pet's comprehensive physical examination, we evaluate his or her body condition and give recommendations based on what we see. For most pets, our recommendations include information on proper serving size and other feeding strategies to maintain optimal body weight and nutritional health. We also help you wade through the claims made by pet food producers so you can make the most informed choice.
Doctors are able to make diet recommendations based on life stage and medical condition.
We offer Royal Canin Veterinary Diets and Hill's Science Diet prescription foods.
