DIETARY COUNSELING

Obesity is a growing problem for almost 50% of pets just like the human obesity epidemic. Weight gain can impact a pet’s quality of life. Obesity is usually caused by infrequent exercise, coupled with a poor diet and too many treats and can be linked to hypothyroidism. Obesity in pets can lead to heart, liver, pancreas, circulatory and orthopedic problems. Diets like Hill’s metabolic diet can reduce most pet’s weight in 2 to 3 months. This diet works naturally with your pet’s metabolism helping them feel full and satisfied between meals. This diet is a synergistic blend of ingredients with a unique fiber blend from fruits and vegetables containing powerful antioxidants. Our veterinarians can design a specific diet plan for your pet that will help them regain their optimal healthy weight and maintain it.

Other dietary counseling needs concern body diseases that can be reversed or slowed down with the use of a special diet.  Conditions that affect the kidney, pancreas, liver, heart, joints, intestine and other body systems can be nurtured back to health with the appropriate diets.
