Canine Nutrition and Weight Loss Management

A healthy nutritional diet plays an important role in extending the life of your pet.

As both the human and pet population grows older, there is an ever-increasing interest in the role nutrition may play in extending healthy life. While many compounds have been suggested to be helpful, the only nutritional intervention shown effective in extending healthy life span is calorie restriction.

Obesity Consultation

Obesity prevention can help eradicate many medical and surgical problems that we see every day and improve and extend your pet’s quality of life. Obesity management is achieved through strategies to satiate your companion, attention to calorie intake, and knowing the weekly percentage of weight loss. We can provide a detailed weight loss program for your pet that includes recommendations for therapeutic or over-the-counter calorie-restricted diets and the proper feeding guidelines. With our assistance, your pet can lose weight safely and effectively.
