BOWDON ANIMAL HOSPITAL
Pet Nutritional Counseling
Nutrition is important for your pet’s overall health. Many pet owners take nutrition for granted, owing to the availability of so many nutritionally complete commercial diets, which has taken much of the guesswork out of selecting a suitable diet for a pet. Did you know, however, that your pet’s nutritional requirements change with age and activity level? Did you know that specially designed diets can help manage a variety of medical conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease? Do you know how many calories your pet should consume per day and whether you are overfeeding or underfeeding? Do you have experience reading and interpreting pet food labels? Did you know that the right diet can help your pet live a longer life?
Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to lose (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you achieve your goals and keep your pet healthy. We provide dietary advice and feeding practices for pets at various life stages, including growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can assist you in choosing the best diet for your pet’s needs. We carry a complete line of prescription dietary foods.
It is easy for a pet owner to become overwhelmed by the variety of pet foods available, all of which claim to have specific benefits for pets. Bowdon Animal Hospital provides professional advice to assist you in navigating this complex array of options. Allow us to help you in achieving and maintaining optimal nutrition for your pet.
