Pet Nutritional Counseling with our Glen Allen Veterinarian

Dog eating nutritious food

The entire staff at Short Pump Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing your pets with the care that they need to enjoy a healthy and active life. Proper diet and nutrition can help them to live longer and healthier lives, especially when coupled with the right level of activity, socialization, and mental stimulation. Many mass-produced pet foods contain fillers and other ingredients that offer nothing of nutritional value to your pet, and may even be harmful in some cases.

Your pets deserve the very best, and if you are concerned about their weight or nutritional profile, please discuss these topics with your vet at your pet's next health and wellness visit.

Nutrition Counseling as Part of Your Pet's Wellness Care

Overweight pets are more susceptible to developing unwanted medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Any additional weight that they carry can also make the pain and discomfort of conditions such as arthritis even more debilitating. Your pet deserves an active and healthy life and our veterinarian staff can help you to find the right nutritional and diet regimen to meet all of their body's needs while maintaining a healthy weight level.

We can help your pet lose weight with special veterinarian-formulated food that restricts calories while still providing the nutritional ingredients that they need. Exercise is an important part of maintaining a healthy weight level, and regular exercise also helps to keep your pet mentally stimulated. Once your pet has reached a healthy weight level we can help you determine the best way to maintain this weight level while giving them all of the nutrients that they require for healthy living.
