Proper nutrition is one of the most important foundations for your pet’s overall health and lifespan. Many diseases are actually rooted in poor nutrition. There are countless pet food brands and types that all claim to be the best on the market. Through our nutritional counseling services, we’ll help you choose the best food option and design an exercise plan specifically suited for your pet.
Dogs and cats require 30 essential nutrients in their diet including protein, essential acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Poor diet due to deficits in these nutrients can lead to conditions such as obesity, skin and coat issues, reduced resistance to disease, pancreatitis, and diabetes to name a few. To help prevent health problems such as these, your pet’s food should meet their caloric needs and should contain complete and balanced nutrition.
During a nutritional consultation at McPherson Veterinary Services, we will take into account your pet’s breed, weight, age, activity level, and special dietary needs. Based on these criteria, we will develop a plan to help your pet maintain a healthy exercise level and weight.
With the help of our nutritional guidance, and through regular checkups, we can help your pets stay strong and in top physical condition. So many diseases and costly medical bills are avoidable with routine care, establishing good habits at home, and practicing preventive medicine.
