Nutrition counselling provides you with expert advice about the best types of foods to feed your pet. Your pet’s diet should be based on unique needs versus general guidance. Particularly if your pet has special dietary needs, like a unique plan based on a health condition, we can advise you about what’s best for them.
What types of food should I feed my pet?
Your pet’s dietary needs will differ depending on their overall health. For example, most pet foods at your local store are fine to feed healthy pets. However, depending on your pet’s weight, age, breed, and overall health, the quality and frequency you feed them will vary. It’s also important to remember that your pet’s nutritional needs change based on their life stage. If you’re interested in learning which specific ingredients and foods should be introduced into your pet’s diet, please contact us at
Does my puppy/kitten need special food?
Puppies and kittens have different dietary needs than other pets. Picking the right pet food for your new puppy or kitten can be overwhelming, especially when different brands claim to be the best. We can help you weed through the choices and find a puppy or kitten food that will meet your growing pet’s nutritional needs. We also carry many nutritionally balanced, veterinary-approved brands for purchase at our hospital. Things you should consider when feeding your pet:
- Reviewing ingredient lists for nutrient-rich foods
- Checking for nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals
- Examining the recommended caloric intake
- Avoiding potentially harmful human foods like raw eggs and chocolate
- Double-checking any foods you’re uncertain about with your veterinary team
