Small Animal Nutrition
One of the main concerns we see in small animals (dogs and cats) is obesity. Research has shown that obese pets live 2 years less than pets of an appropriate body weight. One of our jobs as veterinarians is to provide research based recommendations regarding what and how much to feed your pet. Many different factors play into food recommendations. This includes assessing what your pet feels like (body condition scoring), what the scale reads, age and life stage, and underlying medical conditions such as kidney function.
There is a lot of “Hype” and marketing about the “right” thing to feed your pet. A lot of what people are seeing on TV is just that: MARKETING. It is our job as veterinarians to assist you in determining what food best meets the needs of your individual pets.
