Pet owners are bombarded every day with advertising for pet food, each one proclaiming that their product is the best. How do you choose? How do you wade through the multitude of pet food diets and determine which one is actually the best choice for your pet?
At Perkins Road Veterinary Hospital, we recognize the importance of having the appropriate diet to meet the needs of individual pets. There is no one magical diet that fits all pets. Younger pets need a diet that will help them grow strong and stay active. Older pets require diets that meet their specific needs. Sometimes, pets develop allergies and need a complete change in diet. Other pets have problems with obesity that can lead to serious health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney and heart disease, and a shortened lifespan.
The purpose of our nutritional counseling service is to offer a personalized dietary plan based on your pet’s stage of life. Using your pet’s weight, activity level and physical condition, we can determine the nutritional requirements and proper portions that your pet needs.
We prescribe Hill’s Science Diet and Royal Canin products, making it convenient and efficient for you to do one stop shopping after your pet’s appointment. Let us help you take the guesswork out of providing the best nutrition for your furry friend.
