Nourish Your Pet with the Best Diet

by | Nov 3, 2020 | Blog

You are what you eat! The saying is true for pets, too.

Good nutrition is one of the most important things you can do to help your pet live a happy, healthy, and long life.

That’s why we discuss what you feed your pet at every visit.

Small tweaks to diet and lifestyle can have enormous benefits
Our experience shows that regular nutrition and exercise check-ins can help determine if your pet is eating the right food and getting the best activity for his or her lifestyle.

Let’s find out what’s important and realistic when feeding your dog or cat. Together, we can fine-tune your pet’s diet based on your routines, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

The Pet Obesity Epidemic
Our discussions can help catch obesity early. Most pet owners with overweight pets do not categorize their pets as overweight, but more than 50% of pets are obese. This extra weight causes problems including behavior issues, joint disease, skin disease, and heart disease.

We’ll help you establish weight and exercise goals that we can track over time.

What is the healthiest dog and cat food? We’ll discuss options.
We can help you with:
-The best non prescription pet foods
-Avoiding boutique, exotic, and grain-free (BEG) diets that have been linked to heart problems in dogs
-The best pet treats. For most pets, low calorie, low fat treats are ideal. Carrots and grean beans tend to help fill pets up

As pet owners ourselves, we want our patients to be happy and healthy for as long as possible. The right nutrition is a major factor in accomplishing that.

We look forward to seeing you at your next wellness visit. If it’s time to book one, contact us today.

Dr Penn keeps her cats, Lux and Kaylee, at a healthy weight and keeps their teeth clean by feeding Purina DH. “Both of my kitties eat a daily serving of Purina DH (Dental Health). It has a special crunchy kibble texture designed and proven to reduce tartar build-up between their annual dental cleanings. They love it, and I love not chasing them with a toothbrush everyday. There’s a canine formulation, too!”
