Pet Nutritional Counseling

Maintaining a healthy diet is pivotal for the overall health and wellness of your pet.  If your pet is overweight, dangerous medical complications and health concerns in your pet can start to spiral out of control. A healthy weight helps protect the hard and soft tissues in the body and protect internal organs from systemic disease. Our team at Clinton Hill Animal Clinic in Brooklyn cares about keeping your pet healthy. Here is why it is essential to stay on top of your pet's diet and nutrition.

Why Is Pet Nutritional Counseling Important?

Just like people, pets rely on food to help fuel them with enough energy to make it through the day. Having enough nutrition in a balanced diet ensures that your pet receives the right amount of vitamins and minerals he or she needs to stay healthy. It is important to remember that as your pet ages, his or her nutritional needs will change. A young puppy will have very different nutritional needs than a senior pet. Be sure to regularly talk to our veterinary professional about changing appetites and energy levels as a way of ensuring that you are giving your pet the right nutritional care.  

Why Is Optimal Weight Important?

Your pet maintaining an optimal weight is essential to his or her overall health. Not only can obesity put extra stress on bones and joints, causing painful conditions to form, but obesity can also lead to systemic diseases such as kidney and liver disease or diabetes. Feeding requirements will change as your pet ages. Older dogs tend to have less energy, which means they require fewer calories to keep them energized all day long. Monitor and adjust your pet's calorie intake to match his or her needs.

How Can a Veterinarian Help with Pet Diet? 

Our team can help monitor and control your pet's diet and nutritional needs. With a thorough evaluation, our veterinarian will be able to make suggestions about the right type and amount of food your pet needs. If your pet has trouble gaining or losing weight despite an appropriate diet, there may be an underlying problem causing the issue. We can perform a panel of tests to diagnose and treat any underlying conditions impacting your pet's weight and nutritional intake as part of their nutritional counseling. Taking your pet to an experienced and professional animal clinic is essential to guarantee the best laboratory results and treatment options.
