Even the best of us can use help when it comes to how we fuel our bodies. The same can be said for our furry family members. We understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate store shelves (both online and in-person) to figure out the best food for your pet. This is why we are happy to offer nutrition counselling services for our patients. To learn more, simply reach out to us at 250-248-0008.
What happens during nutritional counselling for pets?
These checkups are centred around your pet’s diet and nutrition. A tip-to-toe visual checkup is usually done to ensure there are no signs of an undiagnosed health issue. Then, you will have a chance to voice your goals or concerns about your pet’s diet. We will then make recommendations on formulas, feeding techniques and feeding schedules that will help support your pet’s unique situation.
How do I know if I’m feeding my pet the right food?
The best thing to do is to ask your veterinarian. Remember, there is no such thing as a “silly” question when it comes to your pet’s health. If they are getting the proper nutrients from their food, they should be in good overall health, the signs of which include:
- Consistent energy levels
- Shiny coat
- Bright teeth
- Normal stool, etc.
