From the very first day you bring a new pet home through the final days of its life, nutrition plays a critical role in your pet's overall health and well-being. Many pet owners take nutrition for granted, in part because the availability of so many nutritionally complete commercial diets has taken much of the guesswork out of choosing a suitable diet for a pet. Your pet's nutritional needs change with age and activity level. Specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Do you know how many calories your pet should have each day and whether you are over- or underfeeding? Reading and interpreting pet food labels can be complicated, we would be glad to educate you on your pets dietary needs. Feel free to call us with any questions you might have.
