Nutrition & Weight Management

Achieve the right nutritional balance.

Diet is an often overlooked part of a pet’s overall health and wellbeing. It should come as no surprise that what your pet eats, as well as how much they eat, directly impacts their health. Achieving the right nutritional balance will allow your pet to better manage any existing medical conditions and significantly improve their quality of life.

Making the Best Decisions for Your Pet

One of the biggest issues when it comes to maintaining good nutrition for pets is the amount of confusing information being presented to owners. The sheer number of pet food brands promising to be the best option for your pet can make anyone feel overwhelmed or exhausted. In addition to that, information about what does and does not constitute a healthy weight for an individual pet isn’t always readily available.

What’s great about having the support of a team that doesn’t believe veterinary medicine should be one-size-fits-all is being able to seek recommendations unique to your pet. Our veterinarians and veterinary technicians have training and firsthand experience dealing with various aspects of pet nutrition. Whether you need pet food recommendations or you’d like us to create a personalized exercise plan to assist your pet with weight loss, we can help.

Weight Management Plans

There’s certainly an adorable factor to a pudgy pup or round, sleepy cat, but obesity in canines and felines is actually a terribly high-risk factor for early death. Excess weight causes dangerous conditions including diabetes, heart disease, and arthritis. Fortunately, with some diet modifications and steady oversight, the problem can easily be reversed. 

If your cat or dog suffers from excess weight, our doctors and weight management coaches will create an individualized weight loss program specifically for your beloved pet. Frequent weight checks, meal adjustments, and general health monitoring are just a few ways we help get your pet down to a sustainable weight. We’re here to answer questions, share your concerns, and offer a support system during these lifestyle changes. 

If you’d like to schedule a pet nutrition or weight loss consultation, call us at (518) 627-9762 or schedule an appointment online.
