You Are What You Eat
& Your Pet Is Too

We know how cute pets are. They have funny, furry faces and sometimes we are tempted to spoil them a little with extra treats. But at Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital, we know that proper nutrition is one of the most important ways to keep your pet healthy.

Many pet health problems are caused by obesity. Because this is such an easily avoidable pet health problem, we are glad to talk about nutrition issues with you. It is very important that your furry family member establishes good eating and exercise habits early on and continues them throughout his or her life. Feeding your pet the right kind and amount of appropriate pet food from the first day he or she joins your family will help to prevent health problems caused by either nutritional deficits or being overweight.

Some pets with health problems benefit from special diets. Because there are so many to choose from, we will gladly give you guidance about the right nutritional choices to help treat:

  • Allergies
  • Bladder stones
  • Some skin conditions
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Bone and muscle problems

Animal Kind’s veterinarians will continue to work with you as your pet grows from a puppy into a healthy adult and eventually a faithful senior pet, so that the food you are offering is always appropriate.
