Nutrition Counselling for Pets
Nutrition counselling focuses on your pet’s dietary needs. When people hear the word “diet”, they usually think of nutritional methods to encourage weight loss. However, for pets, the goal is not always to lose weight. Our nutritional consultations center your pet’s overall well-being. We can teach you about the appropriate foods to feed your pet and monitor their health as they age. With our support, you will receive optimal guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each stage of their life, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. Feel free to ask us about our nutrition plans when you call 905.597.7373
What can we learn during a pet nutritional consultation?
Nutritional consultations are especially helpful for new pet owners. There are a lot of myths about what is appropriate to feed your pet. Speaking with an expert in animal care can clarify what is safe and what is unhealthy. If you are not a new pet owner, our services are still very helpful. We provide knowledge on your pet’s dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance and performance. We teach pet owners the best food for their furry friend’s immune system, recommend supplements and create nutritional plans if they are lacking the necessary nutrients.
Are nutritional consultations necessary for pets?
This depends on each pet’s individual case. Every veterinary appointment is an opportunity for us to weigh them, check their blood and discuss their eating habits with you, the person who knows them best! During those appointments we may make a few recommendations. However, if we’re particularly concerned about their health we will recommend a nutritional consultation.
