Nutrition Counseling

Your Pet’s Good Health Starts on the Inside with the Right Nutrition

Weight issues are something many humans can relate to but tend to overlook or minimize in pets. It is important to note that keeping your pet in a healthy weight range can extend his or her life expectancy by up to 2 to 3 years.

At Community Pet Hospital, we stress the importance of the connection between weight management and optimum health for your pet. We offer nutritional counseling to evaluate your pet’s dietary needs and make suggestions for improvements.

While weight management is the most obvious reason to evaluate your pet’s nutrition, there are a whole host of reasons to do so. A simple thing such as changing your pet’s food can have a dramatic effect on his or her overall health.

There are many diseases that can be successfully treated or managed with diet, such as:

  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • Dental disease
  • Arthritis
  • Skin allergies
  • Food allergies
  • Pancreatitis
  • Canine parvovirus
  • Feline leukemia
  • Immune deficiency viruses

Community Pet Hospital offers two brands of prescription pet foods that are not carried by your neighborhood pet store. These particular pet foods allow us to tailor your pet’s nutritional requirements to his or her physical concerns, and our veterinarians will work with you to determine the best diet to meet your pet’s needs

With a wide variety of inventory available on site, just contact us at 503-670-9707 and we’ll have your pet’s food ready and waiting for you.
