Nutrition & Weight Management

 

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! Arapahoe Animal Hospital offers comprehensive nutrition and weight management counseling to keep your loved one in perfect shape.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your pet consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. Furthermore, many species of companion animals have their own special dietary requirements. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

 

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds may not be critical for a human, but for a companion animal, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten your best friend’s life. That’s why making sure that your pet maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which weight range would be ideal and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. With changes in diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal on the road to better health (and a better figure) in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As your animal family member ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will help your companion stay in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Let’s get started today! We’ll customize a diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.
