The nutritional needs of your pet varies depending on their age, weight, and activity level. Puppies and kittens need nutrition that supports their growth and higher activity levels. Adult and senior pets will benefit from nutrition to support health issues, weight management or slowing physical activity levels. If your pet has a long-term health issue, your pet will benefit from a prescription food formulated specially for that particular health issue.
Maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight can prolong and improve the quality of his or her life. If your pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. Speaking with us is the place to start.
Nutrition is particularly important if your pet is sick or has been diagnosed with a long-term medical condition. Specially designed veterinary foods are an important tool in treating diabetes, hyperthyroidism, kidney failure, obesity and many gastrointestinal conditions. Skin problems may have a nutritional component as well. Blue Ridge Animal Clinic has prescription diet foods our veterinarians recommend as most appropriate for your pet’s individual needs.
