Nutritional Pet Counseling in Springfield
Caring for Pets with Special Dietary Needs
Your pet’s diet is an important part of their overall health and wellbeing. Just like humans, there is no one size fits all diet for animals. You will need to keep track of your pet’s age and overall wellness in order to provide them with a healthy and nutritious diet.
It may not sound like a big deal – as long as your pet is eating, everything is fine, right? In actuality, an inconsistent diet can lead to many health problems for animals, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and shortened lifespan. Thankfully, these problems can often be avoided with an appropriate diet. That’s where our nutritional counselor at Pet Medical Center of Springfield can help.
How Does Nutritional Counseling Work?
The first thing we need to do is review your pet’s medical history and perform a physical assessment. With this information in hand, we can craft a truly personalized diet for your animal friend.
In order to build your pet’s diet, we will need to know more about their:
- Daily routine
- Physical activity
- Medical history
- Genetic information (if available)
- Current diet and eating habits
During the nutrition counseling session, we will help you narrow down healthy food brands for your pet, how to establish a routine feeding schedule, and what you can do to get your pet to eat at the appropriate times. We carry a variety of prescription and therapeutic diets to meet your specific pet's nutritional needs.
