Animal Nutritional Counseling
The Importance of Nutritional Counseling for Your Pet
We are thrilled to announce that our very own RoseAnn Amato, Practice Manager, has extensive education in animal nutrition and will work with you to determine how best to meet your pet’s dietary needs.
There are many different disease processes that require special prescription diets to maintain your pet’s optimal health. Our pets can suffer from thyroid disease, diabetes, feline idiopathic cystitis (resulting in inappropriate urination), bladder stones, kidney disease; each of these disease processes can be significantly improved with the appropriate prescription diet.
Obesity is becoming an incredibly common problem among our pets. being overweight is a serious problem for animals, causing significant health problems as they age. With proper diet and exercise all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range. We often notice weight gain during your pet’s annual exam and can help formulate a weight management plan for them depending on their body condition score. It is important for pets to be at a healthy weight to help minimize arthritis pain, cruciate ligament tears and diabetes.
If you have any questions about your pet’s diet or if you would like to make an appointment to discuss nutrition with RoseAnn, contact us today!
