Nutritional Counselling

Hippocrates once said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”Today, we know how important nutrition can be in not only treating certain diseases, but in prevention and overall wellness. 

There is a seemingly endless amount of information out there regarding nutrition, some of which is fact and some of which is fiction.  It seems every few months or years viewpoints change regarding what should be fed to your pets and what should not. Is corn good or bad? Should I feed grains or grain free? Is raw food the best way to feed my pet? Should I feed kibble? Is kibble bad?

A discussion with your veterinarian can help you sort the facts from the fiction regarding food. We can also help in addressing specific needs for various conditions your pet may encounter throughout their life. Growing puppies require a diet different from that of healthy adults, while patients with food allergies may require assistance finding a diet that keeps them from itching or having diarrhea. An overweight pet may require a diet plan to assist with weight loss. 

We can accomplish a lot through proper nutrition, whether it be homemade food or a prepared diet. Be sure to talk to your veterinarian about your pet’s nutrition and dietary needs.
