The veterinarians at Martensville Veterinary Hospital take special interest in veterinary nutrition, and pride themselves on providing a professional, educated recommendation for your pet’s nutrition. Nutritional consults are available for those animals which may require additional nutrition guidance outside of a routine appointment. All of Martensville Veterinary Hospital’s registered veterinary technologists take additional courses and certification in nutrition. All staff attend seminars in nutrition as well.
During a nutrition consult for your pet you will be asked to provide a complete dietary history, and a detailed outline of your pet’s lifestyle. After reviewing this information, your veterinarian will create nutritional plan that is best suited for your animal including diet type (preformulated or homemade), caloric requirements, amount to feed daily, optimum weight for your pet, and exercise requirements. The plan can also be tailored to meet your own personal philosophies about food, without compromising the health of your pet or household. Our veterinary health care team will teach you how to body condition score your pet so you know when they reach their optimum weight and when the calories need to be adjusted.
