Providing your pet with proper nutrition and adequate exercise is more important to the health and well-being of your pet than you may realize. It’s a fact that many diseases are rooted in poor nutrition. The experienced veterinarians at South Shreveport Animal Hospital realize that there are countless pet food brands and types that all claim to be the best on the market. Through our nutritional counseling services, we’ll help you choose the best food option and design an exercise plan specifically suited for your pet.
At South Shreveport Animal Hospital, we recognize the importance of having the appropriate diet to meet the needs of individual pets. There is no one magical diet that fits all pets. Younger pets need a diet that will help them grow strong and stay active. Older pets require diets that meet their specific needs. Sometimes, pets develop allergies and need a complete change in diet. Other pets have problems with obesity that can lead to serious health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney and heart disease, and a shortened lifespan. To help prevent health problems such as these, your pet’s food should meet their caloric needs and should contain complete and balanced nutrition.
The purpose of our nutritional counseling service is to offer a personalized dietary plan based on your pet’s stage of life. During a nutritional consultation, we will take into account your pet’s breed, weight, age, activity level, and special dietary needs. Based on these criteria, we can determine the nutritional requirements and proper portions that your pet needs, and we will develop a plan to help your pet maintain a healthy exercise level and weight.
