Nutrition & Weight Management

A balanced diet along with a healthy weight each play an important role in your pet’s overall health and longevity. With the right nutritional balance, you can help promote a lifetime of good health for your companion, improve his or her performance and even manage existing medical conditions. Yet, with so many options available on the market today, determining what food is the right choice for your pet can be challenging. So can figuring out what weight range is ideal to keep your companion fit and healthy. The good news is you’re not alone. The friendly, knowledgeable staff at Carmel Mountain Ranch Veterinary Hospital is here to help! Our professional nutritional counseling and weight management services will help get your pet on the right track to achieving optimum health for life.

We’ll start by conducting a thorough analysis of your pet’s present health and lifestyle to determine what his or her specific nutritional needs are. We’ll examine your pet and take into account such things as age, breed, weight and any existing medical conditions. Then, we’ll use this information to develop a customized diet. We may recommend the use of prescription food products, which have many benefits that regular pet foods do not. We’ll also advise you on how much food you should be feeding your pet, and how often, to avoid over-feeding.

Next we’ll tackle the topic of weight. Many caring, responsible pet owners don’t realize that even just a few extra pounds can place their cherished companions at a much greater risk of developing a number of serious, painful and sometimes even life threatening medical conditions, such as arthritis and diabetes. We’ll use the same information we gathered in our nutritional analysis to determine what your pet’s ideal weight range should be. Then, we’ll work with you to figure out which types of physical activities would be best suited for your companion to help them slim down and maintain a healthier weight.

We know you want what’s best for your pet, and so do we! Let us develop a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your beloved animal companion!
