Nutritional Counseling

keep your pet in good health

The main goal of a pet food company is to sell pet food. Descriptions such as “grain free”, “holistic” and “all natural” have no standard definition according to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials). Understanding pet food labels can be daunting- our veterinarians can help you navigate this advertising quagmire.

The current obesity epidemic in the United States has also affected our pets. Portion recommendations on pet food labels are “one size fits all.” They do not address your pets’ individual energy level, age, or any underlying medical needs. Specially formulated diets can assist with the management of medical conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and skin disease. Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed a few pounds, our veterinarians can help keep your pet in good health.
