Obesity in DogsObesity in Cats

What should I feed my dog or cat” and “how much should I feed at each meal” are two of the questions we hear often. Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining your pet’s good health. Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly. Maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight can improve his or her life expectancy. Many gastrointestinal ailments can be linked to inappropriate diets, and many skin problems have a nutritional component to them. 

Diet is the foundation of your pet’s good health and longevity, and we will work with you to create a nutrition plan appropriate for your dog or cat’s age, weight, health, lifestyle and activity level. By assessing your pet’s history and current health conditions, we can assist you in keeping your pet healthy and active. With all the pet food brands on the market, talk to one of our veterinarians about your pet’s nutritional needs. For some medical conditions we recommend feeding one of a variety of prescription diets tailored for pets. For pets that are currently healthy we offer advice on selecting a high quality, non-prescription food from the stores where you shop.

If your pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. Speaking with us is the first place to start. For some pets, feeding a diet formulated for weight loss and carefully selecting lower calories treats can help. Increasing exercise as appropriate for your pet may be helpful. Most often, simply learning the correct volume of food to offer works wonders.

We carry the Purina Pro Plan Veterinary diets, the Royal Canin Veterinary products, and the Hills Prescription food line. 

Please read our important article:  Obesity:  A Big, Fat, Hairy Deal for more information about obesity and your dog or cat.
