Nutritional Counseling

Nutritional Counseling

From the very first day you bring a new pet home through the final days of its life, nutrition plays a critical role in your cat’s overall health and well-being. Many pet owners take nutrition for granted, in part because the availability of so many nutritionally complete commercial diets has taken much of the guesswork out of choosing a suitable diet for a cat. However, did you know that your cat’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level? Specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Your cat should have a certain number of calories each day and we can guide you to know if you are over- or underfeeding. We can also help you interpret cat food labels.

Whether your cat has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you accomplish your goals and keep your cat in good health. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for cats during various life stages, such as growth, young adulthood, senior and geriatric. If your cat has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit their needs.

It can be easy for a cat owner to become overwhelmed by the available selection of cat foods, all of which claim to have specific benefits for cats. We can offer expert advice to help you select from the complicated array of choices. Let our nutritional counseling service help you achieve and maintain optimal nutrition for your cat.
