Pet Nutritional Counseling

Clinton Hill Animal Clinic Offers Pet Nutritional Counseling

Good nutrition is important for animals, as it is for humans. The types and amounts of food pets consume can have a direct effect on their general health, activity levels, and longevity. Nutritional counseling is a structured method of providing the right nutrition for each pet’s unique needs. At Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in Brooklyn, NY, we help our patients maintain good health through good nutrition.


Good Nutrition At Every Age

Animals require different types of nutrients during their early years, through adulthood, and into the senior years. Puppies and kittens thrive on higher fat and vitamin levels, to help support their active lives and ensure proper development. Adult dogs and cats require a balanced diet, lower in fat to prevent weight problems that affect health. Senior animals may have digestive issues or other health problems that require nutritional support to help them enjoy better health.

Managing Obesity and Other Common Problems

Obesity has become a serious problem in the pet population, as it is in the human population. Excess pounds can lead to several health problems in animals that can be avoided by maintaining weight in the normal range. Nutritional counseling can help your pet stay slim and fit, extending their lifespan, so you can enjoy their companionship for many years. In addition, nutritional counseling can also help to manage skin allergies and gastrointestinal issues.

Nutritional Support To Manage Specific Health Problems

The proper nutrition can make a significant difference in health for pets that have ongoing medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disorders and kidney problems. A special diet that emphasizes low protein, low carbohydrate, low fat or adjustments in other components can manage symptoms and help to reduce the need for medications. Your veterinarian can recommend the right proportions of fats, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals that will help to manage the health problem, so your pet can live a longer, more active, and healthier life.
