Nutritional Counseling and Prescription Diets
Your Pets are What They Eat!
Nutrition plays an important role in overall health. Our medical staff can recommend youth, adult, and senior maintenance foods to promote and sustain good health. We can also dispense prescription diets to address medical issues including diabetes, allergies, renal disease, gastrointestinal distress, and arthritis.
Weight Loss and Maintenance
Additionally, obesity is a growing concern for domestic pets. We offer several types of weight loss and maintenance prescription foods, and our veterinary team can recommend which of those will work best, in conjunction with suitable exercise, to help your pet reach and remain at a healthy weight.
Should My Pet Go Grain-Free or Raw?
Current trends suggest that grain-free and raw diets may be the best options for our pets. These diets would require overhaul of pet food conventions. However, research and industry experts have found no across-the-board benefits to these nutritional paths, and in fact, there may be some dangers.
