Like humans, diet and nutrition are the foundation of your pet’s good health and longevity. At Boat Club Road Animal Hospital, our veterinarians will help you formulate the best nutrition plan for your pet based on his or her age, and current health condition and lifestyle.
Sometimes it can be difficult to know if the food or treats you have been feeding your pet are truly providing them with the nutrition necessary for his or her individual needs. What you feed your dog or cat is essential to their overall health and well-being, and as pets grow older, their nutritional needs will begin to change. Each life stage requires a particular balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates; our veterinarians will assist you in making proper food choices for your pet to keep them healthy.
Certain diseases, especially chronic ones, can be affected by diet. Your veterinarian may prescribe a particular diet to address a variety of disease such as kidney disease, liver disease, cardiac disease, obesity or gastrointestinal problems.
Imbalanced diets can be linked to conditions such as gastrointestinal ailments and dermatological problems. By assessing your pet’s history and current health condition, our veterinarians can provide you with recommendations for the specific foods that are best for your companion. Boat Club Animal Hospital carries a wide range of prescription diets and nutraceutical supplements to aid your pet in their nutritional goals.
Obesity in household pets is a common problem. A pet who is overweight or obese is more susceptible to develop serious medical conditions. Maintaining your pet at his or her ideal body weight will keep your pet healthy and can improve his or her life expectancy. If you pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help them get back into shape. Some owners see improvement in their pet’s weight by simply adjusting the volume of food, selecting lower calorie treats, or switching to a brand of food that is specially formulated for weight loss. Oftentimes, increasing the amount of play and exercise in addition to an adjusted diet gives your pet the greatest chance of successful weight loss.
