Pet Nutrition

You are what you eat. Preventive care starts with food.

Animals’ nutritional requirements vary greatly. Decisions regarding your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian.

Geriatric animals have significantly different requirements than young, growing puppies or kittens. Animals with diabetes or kidney disease also have different requirements.

Your veterinarian will be able to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s diet given his or her age, breed and health status.

Puppies and Kittens

Growing puppies and kittens have different nutritional needs than adult dogs and cats. There are a variety of pet foods available on the market. We have selected nutritionally balanced brands that we are confident will meet your puppies’ and kittens’ growth requirements.

Giant Breeds

Nutrition for giant breeds has become a hot topic of discussion among owners of giant-breed dogs. Giant breeds include, but are not limited to Great Danes, Irish wolfhounds, and giant schnauzers. These breeds have unique dietary requirements, and we can provide you with the information you need to make the correct decisions about your pet’s nutrition. We discuss these requirements with all new puppy owners during their first puppy wellness visit. If you have any concerns regarding the nutrition of your giant-breed dog, we would be pleased to discuss them with you further.
