Most people understand how important proper nutrition is for humans, but did you know that your pet’s diet is equally important? Obese pets face the same challenges as overweight people, including joint pain, limited mobility, increased risk of certain types of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. The experienced veterinarians at Tipton Ridge Veterinary Medical Center in Pulaski will develop a nutritional program specifically designed for your pet’s unique needs, along with portions that are appropriate for them.
The dietary needs of our pet companions will change as they age, and our compassionate doctors will help them transition to each phase of their lives. Active puppies and kittens require diets that are higher in protein to provide food for their growing muscles and bodies. Once our pets reach adulthood, their needs will change based on their lifestyle and activity level. Finally, mature and senior pets will have unique needs based on their overall health, which may include diets for kidney health, diabetes, special allergy diets, and diets specific to most common issues found in older pets.
Regardless of the current age of your pet, bring them to Tipton Ridge Veterinary Medical Center to ensure they are receiving the nutrition needed for their specific needs. For your convenience, we carry most specialty diets right here at our clinic. Contact us today at 540-980-0186 and schedule a nutritional counseling appointment for your precious pet!
