Looks can be deceiving. How your pet feels on the inside can tell us a lot more about their overall health than how they look on the outside. Nutritional consultations are a great way to meet your pets’ dietary and medical needs. There’s no need to rely on labels when our team is here to help you find what works best for your pet. To book an appointment, please don’t hesitate to call us at 250-828-2939.
What can I learn from a nutritional consultation?
Think of nutritional counselling as a master class on the ins and outs of your pet’s dietary needs. During a consultation, our team will begin by getting a history of your pet’s current diet and eating habits. We will also examine your pet’s overall health to determine if they have any allergies, nutritional deficiencies, or health conditions. From there, we can create a personalized nutritional plan that works best for your pet. By using a feeding schedule, a well-balanced diet, and supplements, we can get them the fuel they need to thrive.
What foods should I avoid feeding my pet?
When all your pet does is stare up at you in all their cuteness, hoping you’ll slip them a bite of your food, it can be hard to say no. The sad reality is that some human foods can cause serious health problems for your pet. If you’re unsure what to feed your pet, that’s where nutritional consultations come into play. Our veterinarians can guide you through your options, keeping your pet’s allergies and nutritional needs in mind. Some foods you should not feed your pet include:
- Chocolate or caffeine
- Grapes and raisins
- Garlic, onions, and chives
- Milk and dairy products
- Raw meat, fish, and eggs
