Pet Nutritional Counselling

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained and certified staff are available to help you choose the right diet for your pet, in order to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.

There are many types of pet foods that are available on the market, and choosing a pet food can be confusing. Foods offered from your veterinarian will definitely benefit your pet in the long run. All veterinary diets are formulated to give your pet the maximum benefit possible. There is a lot of misinformation given to pet owners regarding ingredients, type of food to feed, etc. in different types of stores selling pet food. Your veterinary staff is constantly being updated by nutritional seminars and courses offered on nutrition. Veterinary diets offer the latest and best ingredients available, such as glucosomine or green-lipped mussels, to improve overall arthritic scores, joint pain and joint swelling. Omega 3 fatty acids, such as ETA, EPA or DHA, have anti-inflammatory properties. Chondroitin sulfate helps components of the cartilage and many other ‘special ingredients’ that may only be found in veterinary diets.

Contact your veterinary staff for any questions or suggestions that may benefit your pet from their adolescent years to their senior years.
