The Nutritional Content of food has a massive impact on the management of disease within animals. Some pets require special foods to assist their body with the management of diseases such as Kidney disease, Diabetes, Urinary, or something more long term such as cancer. In addition to this, every single animal out there will benefit from a balanced diet. This is not something that is going to be provided for your animal from some of the foods out there on the market. Did you know, proper nutrition of your pet could increase their lifespan up to two years?

So what does nutritional counseling involve?

Well the ultimate aim will be to devise a plan that can create a balanced diet. The idea is to strengthen the immune system in your pet which will help them fight off disease much easier. What many people don't realize is that there are plenty of prescription foods out there, especially designed to assist with attacking some of the most common diseases found in animals. A lot of the time, these prescription foods are only available directly from Animal Hospitals, and therefore you will need to visit us if you want your animal to be supplied with the best possible foods for their needs.

Our Nutritional Counseling service will always begin with a veterinary examination. This will help to determine the best possible foods for your animal, based on various aspects. For example, if your pet is overweight then we will help devise a low-fat diet, as well as an exercise plan. If they are suffering from diabetes then we will help plan the foods accordingly. All of our vets are able to offer practical advice on various aspects of nutrition, as well as how to get your pets to switch to a new type of food (something people find incredibly difficult). 


You will be surprised at how great your pet will feel when you follow the plan laid out in Nutritional Counseling. As the food will be much better quality their behavior will change, and their coat will shine. In fact, you will be surprised at just how dramatic the results are going to be.

We know exactly how important it is that your pet gets only quality food. After all, you wouldn't settle for something sub-par, so why should your pet? That is why we only carry the highest quality food from Royal Canin, Hill's Science Diets and various other prescription foods. Our staff will be more than happy to discuss the differences between these, and of course offer you the best possible solution for your pet's needs.

How diet & nutrition can help your pet

We will help you make the right dietary changes for your pet so that they can stay on track living their happy and healthy lives. A healthy diet and good nutrition can reduce or even eliminate:

pet allergies
itching and scratching
dull coat
arthritis joint and hip problems
intestinal disorders

Skin and coat supplements are a great way to keep your pet looking and feeling their best. Arthritis and joint supplements can be helpful for many pets as they age.
