Nutrition and Diet

Cute dog at the park eating his foodAt Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital, we believe proper nutrition and weight control to be important part of your pet’s overall general good health. It is our mission to provide as much support to each pet owner as he or she determines the healthiest diet choices for their pet. During your pet’s wellness exam, we will discuss with you the various food choices and the proper amount of food to feed your pet that are best for your pet’s age, health and weight. Pets that are overweight or underweight are more susceptible to disease and injury. Obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, liver conditions and other ailments.

We can also help you help your pet lose weight and maintain a healthy figure. We have found that the most successful outcomes result from clients who regularly follow-up with us, whether through telephone consultations or return visits, to ensure that their pet is on the right track.

To meet our client’s needs, Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital also carries a wide range of foods that enable us to design a diet that will optimize your pet’s health. Below are some examples of types of diets that we carry:

Prescription Diets: Prescription diets are formulated and designed to meet specific nutritional needs required for certain illnesses and conditions including diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, obesity, arthritis, allergies, pancreatitis, cancers, and many more.

Life Stage Diets: Life stage diets are designed based on your pet’s needs at each stage of his or her life, including puppy, adult and senior diets. As your pet ages, his or her body undergoes significant changes that are often influenced by his or her diet or vice versa.

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 right foods to help your pet maintain the correct body weight determined by factors based on his or her specific characteristics and receive the nutrients he or she needs.
Please give us a call today if you would like to talk nutrition, diet or weight management with one of our staff or to make an appointment for your pet.
