Nutrition

Nutrition

Ongoing proper nutrition, leading to optimum health and performance is an important goal for every pet owner. Understanding which kinds of food, fed when, and in what quantity, will help you toward achieving that goal. Good nutrition for your pet not only helps to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, including strong bones and muscles, it too can help with the prevention of disease.

What can be challenging are the changing nutritional needs of your pet as it passes through life’s natural stages. In addition to natural changes that can occur over time, medical conditions can significantly change which foods, and in what quantity your pet should be given. The veterinarian and other clinical professionals at GRAH are available for both simple consultations, as well as complex consultations where codependent medical and nutritional needs for your pet will be assessed.

In some cases, the veterinary team will need to work with you to complete a dietary history for your pet, working together to better understand recommendations for nutrition, using quality products both available in-store, or possibly prepared at home. Overall improvements in the health of your pet will be assessed to further develop and maintain an appropriate nutritional regime for your pet into the future for optimum health and well being.
