Why is nutritional counselling recommended?
Diet and nutrition are directly linked to a pet's well-being. When the diet isn't balanced, it can lead to costly veterinarian bills due to various health issues. Every pet is unique and requires their own specialized diet curated towards their specific needs. You can think of nutrition counselling as a checkup of your pet's diet. Our veterinary team will get a history of your pet's eating habits, feeding schedule, food history, and many more. We will then make recommendations and advise you on the appropriate food amounts to feed and other tips on how to better meet your pet's nutritional needs.
What food should I avoid feeding my pet?
Pets have a much more sensitive gastrointestinal tract. As such, it is important to observe closely how your pet reacts to certain food. If you notice your furry companion is scratching more or has bumps throughout their skin after eating, they could have a potential food allergy. When deciding on the type of pet food to buy, make sure to check the ingredient list and identify if there are proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, and minerals as any products without them should be avoided. If words like “completed” or “balanced” are missing from food labels, then they might not be the best options.
