Pet Nutrition & Diet
Your pet’s nutritional needs depend upon their age, health, activity level, and medical history. For example, younger pets need diets to support a more active lifestyle and healthy, growing bones and muscles, older pets benefit from fewer calories and pets with chronic conditions benefit from food developed to support the disease.
With so many brands on the market, it can be difficult to know if the food and treat products you have chosen are providing your pet with the nutrition he or she needs to stay healthy and strong. We recommend feeding foods from the manufacturers that also make veterinary prescription diets such as Royal Canin, Science Diet, Iams and Purina. At your pet’s next wellness exam, ask us about the type of food that will best benefit your dog or cat’s nutritional needs. We will discuss the various food choices that are best for your pet’s health and body condition.
Keep your pet at a healthy weight
Brookdale Animal Hospital offers weight loss and weight management services for overweight dogs and cats or cats with weight-related health problems to help your pets achieve and maintain a healthy figure. Pets that are overweight or underweight are more susceptible to disease and injury, and obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, liver conditions, diabetes, and other ailments.
