Our nutritional counseling services help your pet live longer!
From the time you bring a new pet home, all the way up to your pet’s final days, nutrition is important to your pet’s health and well-being. Even well-intended pet owners that pay attention to nutrition can easily take for granted they are buying the correct food for their pet, not realizing a pet’s nutritional needs change with age, and or activity levels.
The reason for choosing the correct diet for your pet is so important, is that it can assist your pet in avoiding or lessening the effects of various medical conditions. These conditions can include everything from diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and arthritis.
The nutritional counseling services at Prairie Animal Hospital are your first and best defense against your pet experiencing nutritional deficiencies that could contribute to other medical conditions. Likewise, if your pet has an existing condition, our trained staff can recommend specially formulated diets to assist in managing that condition.
There are a variety of reasons to talk to a trained consultant. Pet owners can be overwhelmed by the huge selection of products on the market. There may also be concerns about calorie intake, and overfeeding or underfeeding your pet. Our nutritional consultants can evaluate your pet, any pre-existing conditions it may have, the age of the pet and its activity level, and then select the most appropriate diet for your pet.
Call Prairie Animal Hospital today to schedule your pet’s nutritional consultation.
