Prescription Diets and Nutrition Counseling
Pet nutrition has advanced considerably over the last several years. As we learn more about our pets and their nutritional requirements, we have discovered diet can play an important role in disease management.
Heart disease, kidney disease, urinary tract disorders, allergies, obesity, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, liver disease, and even dental tartar can be managed or prevented by specific diets with or without the need for additional medications.
Eukanuba (Iams), Hill's, Purina, and the Royal Canin companies have each developed diets specific to a variety of medical problems. These foods are available only through veterinarians who can tailor a diet to a pet's special needs.
