Nutrition and Prescription Diets
Our team at South Hall Veterinary Hospital in Oakwood is committed to your pet's well-being and health. Our veterinarians and staff will care for your family pet as if it was their own. During each wellness visit, your pet will receive a nose-to-tail check-up that includes a discussion regarding your pet’s diet and any improvements that are required to keep your pet in optimal health.
Feeding Your Pet The Best
Dogs and cats have different nutritional needs at different stages in their lives. Our staff will make recommendations regarding the quality and quantity of food that is required to keep your pet vibrant and strong. Our local vets are the best source of information regarding your pet's nutrition.
Kittens and puppies have special nutritional needs to support their rapid growth years. A diet high in protein and other nutrients will launch them into adulthood in the best possible way. Formulas that are designed for each major age milestone will provide the proper caloric and nutritional content for your pet as it ages.
A complete and balanced diet is the cornerstone for success. A prescription diet that is balanced with protein, essential amino and fatty acids, along with a dose of vitamins and minerals is the key to keeping your pet healthy for years to come.
What A Prescription Diet Plan Provides
Using a special prescription diet plan for your pet is the path towards optimum health. A veterinarian recommended diet plan will take into account more than just food. We consider age, lifestyle, activity level, disease, and body composition when determining your pet's nutritional needs and requirements. A prescribed diet plan will help prevent overfeeding and underfeeding to help maintain an appropriate weight and balanced body composition for your pet.
Providing proper nutrition for your pet can help manage many aspects of your pet’s life. Diets that are rich in the right nutrients can positively affect and manage diseases. The correct balance of vitamins and minerals in prescription diets can improve your pet's skin and coat, positively impact allergies, and improve weight control. Proper nutrition can also help the following:
- bladder health
- dental health
- digestive system
