Nutritional Counselling

Every pet deserves a specialized feeding regiment based on their species, breed, age, weight and previous health concerns. Pet food is not a “one size fits all” and many pets require a special prescription diet to help maintain good health!

For pets that we are not treating chronic health issues, we can recommend high quality diets that will help keep your pet healthy throughout their life. Young and geriatric animals do typically require a different diet than adults to give them additional health support.

For pets that do have chronic health concerns, we can offer a large variety of special diets for numerous health issues, such as urinary, kidney, allergies, obesity and gastro-intestinal issues. Did you try a diet, but your pet didn’t like it? Don’t worry! We are able to offer several varieties of each type of diet, because we know there are finicky eaters out there! We know adjusting your pet’s food can be challenging and can take time, but we are here to support you through the transition and provide you with what to expect and all the information you need regarding the diet change! Our staff is well trained at the different types of food we offer, so please don’t hesitate to ask questions or for more information!

We also have an option for you to purchase your prescription diet on our online pharmacy (found right on our website) and you can have your pet’s food delivered right to your door! We recommend this over other online pharmacies because we can guarantee that the food comes directly from our manufacturer and they will stand by their product if there are any issues! This also helps to guarantee that you aren’t receiving a counterfeit diet!

Fun facts

Obesity can lead to diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, lung disease, liver problems, decreased life span. Decreasing the amount of food your pet is eating isn’t always nutritionally sufficient. Many times, pets need a specific weight loss diet in order to make progress and still get appropriate nutrition.
