If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet owner. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, Falls Village Veterinary Hospital is here to help with our professional nutritional guidance and weight management services.
What your four-legged family member consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your companion for optimum results.
A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for a pet, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten your best friend’s life. That’s why making sure that your pet maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get your companion fit in no time!
As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your loved one staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.
Prescription pet foods can play a part in the management of many health issues such as weight, mobility, kidney, digestive, urinary and skin and coat health. New foods have been developed to help pets with multiple issues, such as weight and urinary or weight and mobility. We are proud to recommend and carry Hills, Royal Canin and Purina diets.
