We know you always want what’s best for your companion, and we believe it starts with a solid foundation of good nutrition and a healthy weight. What you feed your pet can either support a lifetime of good health, or it can fall short, providing nothing more than basic sustenance and empty calories. Yet, with so many options available, choosing the right product can be challenging, just as determining what weight is ideal for your pet can be. If you are feeling uncertain or just need a little guidance, you can trust the team at Cambie Animal Hospital. Our professional nutrition and weight management services will help bring out the very best in your four-legged friend.
Our team of qualified veterinary professionals is well-versed in all aspects of animal nutrition and can help develop a customized diet and exercise plan that will provide your pet with precisely the right nutritional balance and also help them achieve and maintain a healthy weight. We’ll start with a detailed analysis of your pet’s unique needs and lifestyle, considering such things as age, breed, weight and current health. This information will help us determine precisely what his or her nutritional needs are, and the best approach to meeting those needs.
We’ll also assess your pet’s weight. This is particularly important because animals that are even just a few pounds overweight are at a much greater risk of developing serious, sometimes life threatening medical conditions such as diabetes and arthritis. To prevent this, it’s important that we determine what weight range is ideal for your pet. We will then work with you to establish a plan to get your pet more active to help them trim down and maintain that ideal weight over time.
Good nutrition and a healthy weight make for a happy pet. If you’re not sure whether your companion is getting the most out of his or her diet and exercise, we can help! Let us get your pet on the path to a lifetime of good health!
