Maintaining a healthy, nutritional diet and overcoming weight challenges are not only problems for people! It is extremely important to the staff at Perky Paws Pet Hospital to provide as much support as possible for each pet owner as he or she determines the healthiest nutrition and diet choices for a beloved pet. Determining those best choices grows more confusing each day due to the overwhelming number of available pet food brands and conflicting online information.
The nutritional counseling that we provide at Perky Paws Pet Hospital extends beyond food choices; it also includes analysis of your pet's breed, daily activity level, eating and drinking behaviors, existing medical conditions, current life stage (such as infancy through senior stages, pregnancy, nursing, etc). Lastly, we invite your input and home observations of your pet's eating and drinking habits and fluctuations in weight and/or appearance to help build the best nutritional and diet plan for the longevity of your pet.
Our comprehensive nutritional counseling approaches your pet's nutrition and diet needs from several angles. We evaluate your pet as an individual who deserves nutritional analysis tailored to his/her lifestyle and health needs.
To meet our clients' needs, Perky Paws Pet Hospital carries a wide range of foods and nutritional supplements that enable us to design a diet that will optimize your pet's health! Below are some examples of diet types that we consider for our clients' pets:
Prescription Diets: Prescription diets are formulated and designed to meet specific nutritional needs required for certain illnesses and conditions. We offer a variety of prescription diets to help manage health diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, obesity, arthritis, allergies, pancreatitis, and many more.
Life Stage Diets: Life stage diets are designed based on your pet's needs at a particular stage of life. During the ageing process, your' pet's body undergoes significant changes that can be influenced by diet. Other examples of major life changes that occur throughout life may include pregnancy and nursing. We want your pet to live a long, happy, and healthy life, and nutrition is an important factor in achieving this!
Weight Management Diets: Weight management diets aim to maintain a lean body weight in order to help your pet live a longer, healthier life. We will help you choose the appropriate food to help your pet achieve and maintain the ideal body weight
Nutraceutical Supplemented Diets: Nutraceutical supplemented diets are those that utilize nutraceuticals, which are nutrients that have been isolated from foods, are sold in medicinal forms, and contain therapeutic agents. Well-known categories of nutraceuticals are anti-oxidants, botanical and herbal extracts, minerals, and vitamins. These products are known to provide a variety of specific health and medical benefits and may aid in supporting live health, minimizing inflammation in joints and conditioning the coat and skin.
