Nutrition & Weight Management

Are you certain that the food you’re giving your pet is truly meeting his or her nutritional needs? What about weight? Do you know what range would be best to keep your pet fit and healthy? The subject of nutrition and weight control in animals can be a confusing one. What you need is the help of an expert. At Edgewood Animal Hospital, we offer professional advice and guidance on such topics as what type of food would be ideal for your pet, how much and how often you should be feeding your companion, and what weight range you should be helping your pet maintain for optimum health. Let us design the perfect diet and exercise plan to bring out the very best in your animal friend.

The truth is, unless you’ve received specialized training, the subject of nutrition and weight control in animals can be a confusing one for even the most seasoned pet owner. What you need is the help of an expert.

At Edgewood Animal Hospital, we offer professional advice and guidance on such topics as what type of food would be ideal for your pet, how much and how often you should be feeding your companion, and what weight range you should be helping your pet maintain for optimum health.

We’ll start by conducting a detailed analysis of your pet’s current health status, considering such things as his or her species, breed, age, present weight and the existence of any medical conditions. This will help us to determine precisely what your companion’s unique nutritional needs are. Then, we’ll work with you to develop a customized diet that will help you meet those specific needs most effectively.

Next, we’ll tackle the topic of weight. Did you know that companion animals that are even just a few pounds overweight can be at a greater risk of developing serious, sometimes life threatening medical conditions? Likewise, if your pet is underweight, he or she may be more prone to illness or injury. We’ll help determine exactly where your pet should tip the scales and then advise you on how you can help them achieve that ideal weight and maintain it over time.

Finally, we’ll need to revisit your pet’s nutrition and weight control plan from time to time to make sure it’s still as effective as it was designed to be. As pets age, their health care needs change, as do their requirements for diet and weight management. Our team will evaluate your companion every so often and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that his or her nutritional plan is still achieving the desired results.

Don’t play a guessing game with your pet’s nutrition. Let us design the perfect diet and exercise plan to bring out the very best in your animal friend and help them achieve optimum health for life!
