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. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. 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! Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital offers comprehensive, professional pet nutrition and weight management services.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your four-legged family member 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. 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 for a human may be no big deal but, for a companion animal, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’s life. That’s why making sure that your loved one maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet 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 improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Contact Coit Hedgcoxe Animal Hospital today to get started. We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.

      My dogs and cats don’t go anywhere else but to see Dr Michalk. It’s been over 20 years now and I seriously feel as though we’re all family. Shawna once said about Chad, “he doesn’t speak people. Only animal.” That’s how I feel about the whole staff
