Veterinary Dietary Counseling


Veterinary Dietary Counseling

Nutrition management is vital to avoid diseases for all pets as for humans.

Most people feed their dogs kibble or wet food. These foods contain all the necessary nutrition our beloved dogs need to stay in perfect health. Quality commercial dog foods are regulated and vetted with safe testing by veterinary specialists. But what's in these dog foods?

Dogs are omnivores with a preference for carnivores, unlike cats, which are pure carnivores. Meat must make up a large part of their diet, but domestic dogs must also derive nutrients from grains, fruits, and vegetables. These non-meat-only foods are a source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber essential to their health. Good dog food must contain, in different portions, just meat, vegetables, cereals, and fruit. The best dog foods contain high-quality versions of these ingredients that are appropriate for your dog's digestive system. 

We would teach you how to help and manage your pet's diet to make its life free of nutrition-related diseases such as obesity. 

We will provide guidance regarding your pet's nutritional needs for each life stage...
