Nutrition & Weight Management

The nutrient profile required by a adult dog is quite different compared to a puppy or senior, and can be further influenced by dental disease, obesity, and medical concerns such as periodontal disease or allergies. A pregnant female dog will need a food approved for growth, especially once she is nursing as this place’s a tremendous demand on her energy requirements. Let us know if you are interested in a food recommendation so that we can make an appropriate recommendation with your dog’s individual needs in mind.

We always recommend monitoring by BOTH body condition and weight. Every animal is built differently and so we always aim for an ideal body condition when making food recommendations and weight programs. If you are worried your dog is becoming overweight, let us know so we can ensure any weight loss efforts are done safely and that your dog will still receive adequate nutrition.
