It should come as no surprise that a pet’s nutrition is a key pillar of its overall health and well-being. Here at Aliso Beach Animal Clinic in Laguna Beach, CA, our veterinarian team aims to help pet owners to provide their pets with a high-quality diet that not only prevents conditions like pet obesity but also helps them live a fuller life. Proper nutrition and preventative care can help to reduce or even eliminate many diet-related health concerns such as food allergies, skin conditions, and weight gain.
Finding the Right Nutrition for Your Pet
Our vets can help you get the most benefits by helping you not only plan regular wellness visits and other preventative care but also the appropriate dietary regimen for your unique pet. We believe that an active, healthy lifestyle is supported best by a well-balanced diet of high-quality foods.
Proper nutrition is closely linked to a cat’s overall wellness, helping to improve a wide variety of health issues common in felines. Pet obesity is an issue that can cause a multitude of serious conditions in cats. If you’re looking for a diet that meets these needs while also catering to existing health conditions, or preventing them in the first place, our staff can work with you to find the nutritional plan that best meets these goals.
Dogs come in a massive variety of shapes and sizes and their dietary needs reflect that. Small dogs often require far fewer calories to function day to day, especially when they lead a less active life. On the other hand, large breeds need a diet that supports their unique nutritional requirements for muscle growth and calorie usage. Furthermore, working dogs fare best when fed heavy food as it much more closely supports their lifestyle.
Nutrition for Senior Pets
As your pet gets older, it’s common for nutritional habits and needs to change. Just like with humans, age slows the metabolism and reduces activity levels, meaning a high-calorie diet from years past may not be the best choice anymore. A pet’s ability to chew and properly digest food might change as well. Our team can assess your pet’s needs as they age to ensure they are always getting the ideal nutrition.
