Nutritional Counseling

Our hospital is happy to offer a variety of nutrition services for your pet. Obesity is the number one nutritional problem facing pets today and can lead to severe health problems if not addressed. If your pet is overweight or obese, contact us today for a full evaluation.

Pets with certain medical conditions such as liver, kidney, bladder, heart disease, or obesity often require specific nutritional therapy to minimize symptoms of their disease. If your pet has any of these conditions, contact your veterinarian to discuss possible dietary recommendations or alterations.

Other pets that may benefit from nutritional services include new kittens or puppies and geriatric (senior) pets. We are happy to discuss different types of nutrition and supplements that may benefit your pet and allow them to reach or maintain their optimal health level.

We recommend the following brands:

  • Royal Canin
  • Hill's Science Diet
  • Purina
  • IAMs
  • Eukanuba

*We do not recommend grain free diets.
*When changing diets, we recommend a slow transition. Start with about 25% new food, then slowly add more of the new food over the next 5 days.
