Pet Nutrition with Our Greensboro Veterinarian

Your pets’ health relies on mental and physical exercise, regular vet care and a great daily diet. The nutritional makeup of the food you give your dogs and cats can have a positive or negative impact on their health. Reading the label to find brands with the highest-quality ingredients can help, but it is not always enough to ensure your pets enjoy a nutritionally-balanced diet. Your Greensboro veterinarian at West Market Veterinary Hospital can help you find the best foods and treats for your pets’ age, activity levels, and overall health condition.

Nutrition Needs for Dogs and Cats

Dogs and cats require a nutritious daily diet to thrive through every life stage. The cat food and dog food you provide should offer the correct blend of vitamins and nutrients for your pet’s age, size and activity levels. Foods custom designed for the puppies and kittens or senior pets boost essential nutrients your pets need at those stages.

No matter what type of food you provide, you should always carefully measure out all portions to prevent obesity. Also, avoid table scraps and excessive treats to keep calorie intake at the appropriate level for your pet. If you are training often with food rewards, you can replace a small portion of the kibble with treats or simply use normal pet food as the reward.

Health Concerns Requiring Nutrition Changes

Greensboro veterinarian professionals can control certain medical conditions by making smart changes to your pet’s daily diet.

Common reasons for prescription diet plans include:

  • Kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Food allergies
  • Bladder stones
  • Heart disease
  • Seizures
  • Pancreatitis

A full examination and diagnostic tests, including a blood draw, can help your veterinarian in Greensboro figure out how to best improve your pet’s nutritional intake.

How a Vet Can Help You Establish and Maintain a Healthy Diet for Your Pets

Your veterinarian in Greensboro at West Market Veterinary Hospital can assess the health of your pet to determine the best pet food to provide on a daily basis. You can also learn about differences between dog food and cat food brands available online and in local stores. Schedule an appointment with your veterinarian by calling (336) 292-4753 to learn more.
