Nutrition & Weight Management

Imagine for a moment walking down the supermarket aisle and just grabbing any old items you see off the shelves without paying any attention to what each product was and what it contained. You wouldn’t do this. Not only because you’d have no idea whether the food would taste good, but more importantly, because you wouldn’t know if the food you were choosing had any nutritional value.

Yet, this is exactly how many pet parents shop for food for their animal companions.

Just as with humans, what your pet eats and how much he or she weighs can have a direct impact on his or health and well-being. The right diet and a healthy weight can truly bring out the very best in your pet.

The problem is, with so many different food products on the market today, and with so much confusion surrounding weight control, managing this component of your pet’s health care can be challenging. What you need is the guidance of an expert; someone who understands pet nutrition and can provide you with the education and support you need. What you need is the dedicated team at Verdin Veterinary Service!

Our professional nutrition and weight management services are designed to deliver a personalized approach to your pet’s diet and exercise. We’ll start by pinpointing your companion’s unique nutritional needs based on a number of important factors, including breed, age, current weight and the existence of any medical problems. Once we know what your pet’s specific needs are, we can develop a diet that is tailor-made just for them.

Next, we’ll tackle the topic of weight control. This is important because companion animals that are overweight are at a much greater risk of developing a number of serious, sometimes even life threatening medical conditions. Likewise, pets that don’t weigh as much as they should may be more susceptible to injury or illness. We’ll determine what your pet’s ideal weight range should be and come up with a plan to help achieve that target weight and maintain it over time.

Finally, we will need to revisit our approach from time to time to make sure it’s still as effective as it was originally designed to be. As pets age, their bodies change and so do their health care needs. The diet and exercise plan designed for your puppy will be vastly different from what he or she needs to stay healthy and fit during the adult and senior years. We’ll evaluate and adjust our plan accordingly over the years so that it continues to get the results we’re after.

Not sure if your pet is truly getting what he or she needs to stay fit and healthy? Don’t play a guessing game in the pet food aisle. Let us work with you to develop a customized diet and exercise plan that will help your furry family member achieve a lifetime of optimum health.
