Here at Animal Care Centers we recognize the importance that nutrition plays in the overall health and happiness of our pets. Nutritional evaluations and recommendations are included as a key component of our preventative health care protocols. We strive to be a valuable resource of nutritional information and advice for our clients. We believe that good nutrition is vital to your pet’s health. There are so many facets to nutrition so we understand how overwhelming it can be when you go pet food shopping. We are here to help you understand nutrition and what works best for your pet.

Here are some nutritional topics that we can discuss with you during an appointment:

  • Understanding the basics of healthy nutrition and feeding practices
  • Reviewing life-stage nutritional recommendations for your pet
  • Determining the daily recommended caloric intake needs of your pet
  • Reading and understanding pet food labels

 

If you have ever caught yourself walking up and down pet food aisles and not knowing what in the world is best suited for your pet’s diet, don’t fret you are not alone! We too have become frustrated by the vast number of pet foods, which are often misleading and confusing due to marketing schemes used to confuse owners. Also we are concerned about the number of pet food recalls that have occurred over the past several years. For this reason we are here to help you decide what diet works best for you and your pet. We can provide food lists that we can recommend to you or we also carry veterinarian prescription diets. Our prescription diets are specifically designed to help support the following aspects of our pets’ health:

  • Oral health/Dental Disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Live disease
  • Feline Hyperthyroidism
  • Gastrointestinal disease
  • Urinary tract disease, including urinary stones
  • Joint Disease
  • Food allergies
  • Skin disease
  • Heart disease
