Proper nutrition and appropriate portions are one of the cornerstones of health for our animal family members. With the number of brands and “specialty foods” that are now available, choices for your pet can become difficult without the help of a veterinarian. For example, did you know that your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level? Were you aware that specially formulated diets can assist in the management of various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, and heart disease? Do you know how many calories your pet should have each day and whether you are over- or underfeeding? Are you comfortable reading and interpreting pet food labels? At Walton Way Veterinary Clinic, we understand there is an overwhelming amount of nutritional information available, and we are here to determine the nutritional needs that are specific to your constant companion, regardless of their current age or condition.
Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. We offer counseling in dietary selection and feeding practices for pets during various life stages, such as growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit your pet’s needs.
Allow the caring veterinarians at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic in Augusta to establish a proper diet for your precious pet. Please call one of our compassionate team members at 706-733-2288 and become a part of our pet family today!
