Nutrition & Weight Management

Is your pet getting a little chubby around the middle? Do you need some guidance on what food would best support your companion’s dietary needs?

The topics of pet nutrition and weight management can be confusing even for the most experienced pet parent. Yet what you feed your pet can have a direct impact on his or her overall health and wellbeing. That’s where we can help! Arroyo Veterinary Clinic offers professional, individualized care to support the diet and exercise needs of our patients. We will develop a customized plan that will help your special friend achieve his or her fullest potential.

A complete and balanced diet is essential for your pet. As animals age, their nutritional needs change. Younger pets need diets that support a more active lifestyle, growth and development. Conversely, older pets can benefit from food that is designed to promote good health in the later years. Animals who are carrying a few extra pounds may need special food to help them achieve and maintain a healthier weight. The team at Arroyo Veterinary Clinic can help with all of these needs and more.

The first step is determining which food product would best suit your companion’s unique needs. We recommend choosing foods from reputable manufacturers who specialize in veterinary prescription diets, such as Science Diet and Royal Canin,. Their products as a whole have much more scientific, veterinary research behind them to prove that they are effective.

Once we’ve identified your pet’s nutritional needs, we’ll shift our focus to weight. Maintaining your pet’s ideal body weight will keep them healthy and vital and can even improve life expectancy. If you pet is carrying a few too many pounds, there are many things you can do to help him or her get back into shape. Speaking with us is a great place to start.
