Dietary Counseling

The world of pet foods can be confusing. The “wrong” choice can lead to obesity, and even the best food must appeal to your pet or they won’t eat it, and that won’t fly! Just like with humans, the right balance is important to good health. That’s why we talk with you about your pet’s dietary needs during every wellness visit. We’ll discuss which foods are on the market and which aspects of your pet’s nutrition should be your focus.

Happily, many symptoms or illnesses can be greatly improved with a simple diet change. Appropriate nutrition can do a lot to ease the following conditions:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Urinary problems (crystals, chronic lower urinary tract disease, idiopathic cystitis)
  • Chronic diarrhea
  • Chronic vomiting
  • Pancreatitis
  • Protein in urine
  • Chronic renal disease
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Food allergies and allergies in general
  • Joint disease and arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Behavioral anxiety
