Nutritional Counseling

Nutrition plays a critical role in the overall health of your pet. The many options available for pet owners can take the guesswork out of choosing the food that is best for your pet, however, the food choices you make for your pet are extremely important because there are many variables to consider. These may be the level of activity your pet has, its age, or medical conditions such as kidney disease, diabetes, or arthritis. It is also important to consider how many calories your pet should have per day and how much food or how often your pet should be fed.

At Lakeside Animal Hospital, we include your pet’s diet into its overall health care needs. Our veterinarians will make recommendations, help you interpret pet food labels, and take the guesswork out of choosing the best food and treats for your pet.

Whether you feel your pet is overweight, underweight, or is going through many of life’s stages, our veterinarians will consider these and other factors that may be influencing your pet’s health. We offer dietary counseling to help you find the best diet for your pet’s needs. With the wide selection of pet foods claiming to have special benefits, it can be easy for pet owners to feel overwhelmed with options. Let our veterinarians help you maintain a healthy diet for your pet, leading to its happiness and good health.
