Pet Nutrition in Cedar Hills
Unfortunately, too much food or a lack of balance in their diet could lead to some serious health conditions. And this goes the other way, too. If they aren’t eating enough, your furbaby may not be getting the nutrition they need for a healthy, happy life. So if your dog is starting to resemble a hog, or your feline is refusing food, the Cedar Hills WellHaven can help.
Cedar Hills Nutritional Counseling for Your Pet
If you do have a paunchy pet, you’re not alone. The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention says that more than 50 percent of adults dogs and cats are overweight or obese. While having a flabby tabby might be cute for some, obesity can lead to an increased risk of osteoarthritis, hypertension, certain types of diabetes, and even some cancers!
Nutrition Plans For Your Pet
But as we said before, what they eat is just as important as how much. Some pets also have certain dietary or weight management needs specific to their breed or medical condition. That’s why an overall examination is so important: Weight fluctuation (up or down) could be a sign of something else.
Once any underlying issues have been addressed, our nutrition counselors will provide options to help your pet get back to a healthy weight and lifestyle. We’ll devise a healthy eating plan for your pet as well as potential lifestyle changes that can prolong their life. These diet plans will change to keep pace with the age of your pet as well.
