NUTRITION & WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Are your animal friend’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients are listed there. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be downright confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you could use a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono offers professional pet nutrition and weight management services to get you both on the right path.

A Balanced Diet

The food your pet eats can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different products to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. What’s more, some species have their own special dietary requirements. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can evaluate your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll also advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for a companion animal, it can lead to a host of serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’s life. That’s why it’s so important that your loved one maintains a healthy weight. We can help by determining the ideal weight range for your special friend and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal trimmed down in no time!

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight management needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must ensure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll revisit our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Give us a call or text us today to get started. (570-839-8116) We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal family member.
