The right diet for your pet can play a crucial role in his or her lifelong health. Beginning from puppy/kitten stage to senior years, dietary needs change. In some cases, prescription diets are necessary for promoting better health and managing or slowing down the progression of certain medical conditions.
No matter what stage of life your pet is in, he or she will thrive with good nutrition and a healthy weight. More than two-thirds of all household cats and dogs are overweight or obese. Pet obesity factors in to several problems including diabetes, orthopedic injuries, and diseases affecting the heart, liver, and kidneys.
To help your pet stay active and in great shape we can recommend an optimal nutritious diet and exercise that is appropriate to him or her.
Nutritional Support for Exotic Pets
One of the primary reasons for poor health in avian and exotic pets is improper nutrition. Exotic pets are more susceptible to illnesses and other health problems that result from poor nutrition as they are still adapted to their native diet.
For the best care of your pet, whether furry, feathered, or scaled, please contact the Animal Medical Center team for a consultation.
