The food and treats you feed your pet is essential for maintaining their overall health. As your pet grows older, his or her nutritional needs will begin to change as each life stage requires a specific balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates. At your pet’s next wellness exam, we can help you choose the food and treats that are right for your dog or cat.
Our veterinarians will review your pet’s age, breed, daily activity level, eating habits, and existing medical conditions to implement a nutrition plan tailored to your pet. Our goal is to help guide you in selecting the best food options for your dog or cat, and our nutritional counseling services and products will help your pet stay in good health.
At Family Pet Animal Hospital, we only provide prescription diets, meaning these diets cannot be obtained at a normal pet food retailer.
Prescription diets are formulated and designed to meet specific nutritional needs required for certain illnesses and conditions including diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, obesity, arthritis, allergies, pancreatitis, cancers, and many more.
WEIGHT MANAGEMENT DIETS
Weight management diets help with maintaining lean body weight in order to help your pet live a longer, healthier life. We will help you choose the right foods to help your pet maintain the correct bodyweight determined by factors based on his or her specific needs.
