Nutritional Counseling Services at El Cid Animal Clinic
From the very first day, your pet is born to its final days of life, nutrition plays a critical role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, we can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. A healthy, balanced diet is critical for each pet’s well-being.
Throughout your pet’s life, their nutritional needs can change depending on a host of factors such as age, activity level, breed and more. Many medical conditions, including diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and kidney disease require a diet that is a vital part of their treatment plan.
Take the guesswork out of feeding your pet
Pet nutrition is more complex than simply choosing a bag of food off the shelf of your local store. Like a person, your pet should have a certain number of calories each day to ensure access to the vitamins, minerals and other components that build healthy bodies. Based on their activity level, weight and stage of development we can determine the correct amount of food to be given daily and avoid under or overfeeding.
Reading pet food labels is a great first step in ensuring that your pet has the optimal nutrition. Deciphering the dizzying array of options can be overwhelming and time consuming. Our nutritional counseling services help West Palm Beach pet owners learn what to look for when it comes to a specific diet for their pet. Whether you have a nursing mother, a growing puppy or a senior companion, our experienced, compassionate staff can help you find the nutritional options that work best for your pet at every stage of their life.
