Home • Services • Nutrition and Diet
With so many brands of pet food and treats on the market, it can be difficult to know if the product you give your dog or cat is really providing them with the nutrition they need to stay healthy. What you feed your pet is essential to their overall health and well-being; each life stage requires a particular balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates. As pets grow older, their nutritional needs may change. Speak with our veterinarians during your pet’s next wellness exam to determine the type of food that is best for your dog or cat. We are happy to help you choose a food based on your pet’s breed, health, age, and health condition.
Maintaining a Healthy Weight
At Alberta Veterinary Care we offer weight loss and weight management services for overweight dogs and cats. Our staff can help you address any weight-related health problems to help your pet achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Pets that are overweight or underweight are more susceptible to disease and injury; obesity can lead to conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, liver conditions, and diabetes.
Prescription Pet Foods
Our facility carries top of the line prescription dog and cat foods. These diets are specially formulated for the optimal balance of pet health and nutritional support. We carry diets designed to support a variety of health issues; from diabetes to food allergies, we can provide the right prescription pet food tailored to your pet’s needs.
Please give us a call today if you would like to discuss diet, nutrition, or weight management with one of our staff or to make an appointment for your pet.
