KEEPING YOUR PET HEALTHY THROUGH PROPER NUTRITION
Your pet’s nutritional needs will vary depending on their age, weight, and activity level. Puppies and kittens need nutrition that supports their growth and higher activity levels. Adult and senior pets will benefit from nutrition to support health issues, weight management or slowing physical activity levels.
By maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight you are able to prolong and improve the quality of his or her life. There are many things you can do to help your pet get into shape and maintain a healthy weight. Speaking with us is the place to start!
- Understanding the amount of food to offer your pet
- Selecting low calorie treats
- Appropriate exercise
- Special weight loss diets, if needed
Nutrition is particularly important if your pet is sick or has been diagnosed with a long-term medical condition. Specially designed veterinary foods are an important tool in treating diabetes, hyperthyroidism, kidney failure, obesity and many gastrointestinal conditions. Skin problems may have a nutritional component as well. Indian Creek Pet Hospital has prescription diet foods our veterinarians recommend as most appropriate for your pet’s individual needs.
