Is your pet eating the right food?

There are lots of choices when it comes to pet food. So how can you know if the product you’ve chosen is right for your pet? Every animal is different, which can make managing your companion’s unique nutrition and weight control needs a challenge.

We’re here to help make things just a little bit easier for you! With the professional nutrition and weight management services at Winchester Veterinary Clinic, you can learn exactly what your loved one’s needs are. More importantly, you can receive the ongoing guidance and support needed to keep that special little guy or gal happy and fit for many years to come.


Nutritional Advice

If you’ve ever read the back of a pet food package, you probably already know how confusing it can be. There are literally dozens of ingredients, many of which are difficult to pronounce let alone understand. The good news is, with the right team in your corner, you don’t have to travel this road alone. Our nutritional services begin with a detailed analysis of your pet’s unique needs. We will use this information to help us determine what food product would best support your loved one’s ongoing health and wellbeing.


Weight Management

Next, we’ll approach the subject of weight. While there is arguably nothing cuter than a chubby pet, those extra pounds could actually be placing your companion at risk. Overweight animals are more likely to develop a number of serious medical conditions. Pets who are underweight are also more susceptible to health problems. We’ll identify what weight range is best for your particular pet and help get him or her on the right path toward becoming more fit. Through calorie management and physical activity, we’ll have your loved one in tip-top shape in no time!


Life Stage Management

Just like humans, as pets age, their needs change. This includes their nutrition and weight control needs. At certain intervals during your companion’s life, we will go over the current plan we have in place to make sure it’s still adequate. Any changes that need to be made can be implemented at the appropriate time, ensuring that your loved one continues to achieve optimum health, year after year.

You want your pet to enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. It starts with a balanced diet and healthy weight. Give us a call today and let us design the perfect plan for your pet!
