Nutritional Counseling and Weight Management

Today’s pets are living longer much like people. As you grow older your pet enters many life stages, which require special nutritional needs. Many disease processes, like diabetes or renal disease can be controlled or eliminated just on diet alone. The number one nutritional problem today with pets is obesity. A 13-year study done by Purina concluded that obese dogs had a shorter life expectance than those of normal weight. We at Ark Animal Hospital can council you on pet nutrition and cater a plan that fits the health and nutritional needs of your pet.
