Expert Dietary Consultations
Based on your pet's age, breed, species, and health status, their dietary needs and preferences can vary significantly. Because of this, we are happy to offer dietary counseling to assist you in finding quality food that best fits your pet's needs.
Many pets have special health conditions or are in an age bracket that requires them to have particular dietary needs. Your dog or cat deserves the best possible care in every aspect of their life.
We look forward to working with you and your pet to provide a medically supervised, veterinarian-approved, customized nutrition plan to help them stay happy and healthy for years to come!
Nutritional Consultations For Weight Loss
During a nutritional consultation, our vets will take into account your pet's calorie intake and show you where changes can be made to maximize weight loss or target specific health issues, often using their current food with added supplements or secondary foods.
The Dietary Counseling Process
We’ll start the counseling process by conducting a physical exam and a detailed health analysis to determine your pet’s specific nutritional needs based on scientific studies on pet nutrition. We'll then use that information to develop a customized food plan to meet those needs.
We may recommend using prescription diet food products, depending on whether we feel they will provide added benefits for your pet that regular products do not.
We will revisit our plan from time to time to ensure it is still as effective as it once was. As pets age, their nutritional needs often change, so we must reassess the situation every so often.
