Nutrition & Weight Management

The term “you are what you eat” isn’t just an adage to be applied to human health. What we choose to feed our animal companions is just as impactful. The problem is, unless you’ve been professionally trained in animal nutrition, figuring out which food would best support your particular pet’s unique needs can be a challenge – especially given the number of choices available on the market today. What you need is the guidance and advice of an expert. That’s where Quail Pointe Veterinary Hospital can help!

Our professional pet nutritional counseling and weight management services have been designed to help bring out the very best in your four-legged friend and help them achieve optimum health for life. The right nutritional balance and a healthy weight can add years to your companion’s life, and can significantly improve the quality of those extra years. Whatever your pet’s needs – whether it’s simple nutrition, enhanced performance, weight control or disease management – we can help design the perfect plan to meet those needs.

We’ll start by conducting a thorough analysis of your pet’s overall health and lifestyle. We’ll perform a comprehensive physical exam, and then evaluate your pet based on such important factors as breed, age, weight and present health. The results of this analysis will help us pinpoint your companion’s specific nutritional needs so that we can develop a customized diet to address those needs accordingly. We’ll also advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet to avoid overdoing it.

Next, we’ll move on to your pet’s weight. Animals that are carrying even just a few extra pounds are at a much greater risk of developing a number of serious medical conditions, some of which can even shorten your companion’s life. We’ll use the information we gathered during our nutritional analysis to determine your pet’s ideal weight range, then we’ll work with you to develop and implement a diet and exercise plan that will help achieve and maintain that healthier weight.

You love your pet and want to enjoy as many happy, healthy years together as possible. One of the most effective ways to achieve that goal is to manage their nutrition and weight properly. Let the experts at Quail Pointe help get your pet on the path to a lifetime of good health!
