Nutritional Counseling for Your Pet in La Quinta
What to feed your pet can be a difficult decision as there are so many choices these days.
The doctors at Village Park Animal Hospital strive to partner with you to pick out the best diet for your pet. We feel that the best food for your pet revolves around what the pet will eat, as well as which food is best for their individual needs. These individual needs are very diverse… Some pets have medical needs that require lower protein and phosphorus, which is needed if there is kidney disease, and some pets need lower fat, if they are prone to pancreatic disease or obesity. Some dogs become allergic to certain components of their diet and need a unique protein diet. Getting your doctor’s opinion can be crucial to knowing you are feeding the food that will help to maintain a long healthy life.
Please allow us to assist you in this important decision. We have numerous resources to choose from:
Hill’s Food Company has introduced a new line of food called Ideal Balance; they have formulas that are weight friendly and very nutritious, as well as grain free options and formulas for growing puppies and kittens. This line is available in dry and canned food for cats and dogs.
We also have contacts available for more home cooked options from Just food for dogs who have Rx and over the counter formulas and from Rayne Pet nutrition which has a good selection of limited antigen diets for dogs with food allergies. Balance It , which is a website to help you formulate a Balanced diet for your pet.
