Nutritional Counseling

Pets, like people, are unique and individual; they have different needs based on their size, age, and health issues. But no matter what their individual needs are, it is important that pets maintain a healthy weight, eat a nutritious diet and receive adequate exercise in order to live a longer life with fewer health issues.

As a pet owner, however, figuring out the best nutritional plan for your pet is not always a simple task. There is an abundance of information and advice, but how do you know who to listen to or what to believe?

Nutritional counseling services at Animal Hospital of Onslow can take the guesswork out of what is best for your pet. You will receive information and direction from our knowledgeable veterinarians that will be designed specifically with your pet in mind based on his or her species, breed, age, and health.

Dogs and cats thrive when they are fed a healthy, balanced diet. Currently, however, pet obesity is a huge problem in the United States. When pets are overweight, it creates a tendency towards diabetes, heart disease, joint problems and other chronic health conditions. Through our nutritional counseling service, our veterinarians will simplify what your pet should be eating and how much. Save on vet bills later by feeding your pet wisely today.

The purpose of nutritional counseling is to provide you with practical advice and simple choices. Throughout your pet’s lifetime, we can help guide you to age appropriate diets, portion control, exercise programs and dietary supplements. If you live in Jacksonville, Midway Park, or Hubert, contact us today to see how we can help your pet live a happier, longer, trouble-free life.
