Pet’s nutritional needs are not the same as ours, and it can be confusing. Nutrition is a very important aspect in your pet’s health and there is no one best diet. Every pet is unique and the goal is to find what works best for each individual pet.
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
A pet’s nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to develop a diet made specifically for them and their lifestyle. At Veterinary Center of Parker Inc., we offer nutritional counseling to answer any questions you may have about your pet’s diet. Please contact us to schedule a nutritional consultation today!
