Whether your pet is a newborn puppy, a senior cat, 100% healthy or is dealing with some sort of condition, their diet makes a huge impact. We are happy to provide customized nutritional counselling for all our patients to ensure they have the best diet possible to support their development and unique lifestyle needs.

What happens during nutritional counselling for pets?
You will have a one-on-one conversation with one of our veterinarians to discuss your nutritional goals for your pet. We will assess your pet’s current diet, including the formulations of food they eat and their feeding type. After a physical evaluation, we will make recommendations on ways to improve your pet’s diet. Nutritional plans vary from patient to patient.
