Nutrition Counselling for Pets
You are what you eat and the same thing goes for your furry family member. When it comes to pet food and nutrition, it is best to stay away from a one-size-fits-all approach. Each pet has different dietary requirements in order to keep them healthy. Factors such as their age, breed, size, lifestyle and any health conditions must be taken into consideration when choosing their food. Our team will be here to help you make the right decisions, and take the guesswork out of your pet’s diet.
What is offered during a nutritional consultation?
After a conversation with you and after examining your pet, we will recommend a diet specifically tailored for your pet’s unique needs. We may suggest specific brands and formulations. Prescription diets and supplements may also be given if your pet has a health condition that needs extra attention. We will also give you tips on serving sizes, and how to decode food labels. Call us now at 613.543.2812 to schedule your pet’s consultation.
Can I feed my pet human food?
There are certain human foods that are safe for your pet to eat. That being said, there are many that can harm them and that can even be fatal. As much as possible, we suggest that you give your pet food made specifically for their nutritional requirements. It is the safest option for them.
What are some foods that I should avoid giving to my pet?
Certain human foods can cause severe reactions and even death for your furry family member. If you own a dog, you should never feed them foods such as chocolate, grapes, alcohol, onions, garlic, nuts, and bones. For cats, things like bread, dog food, onions, garlic, chocolate and milk (most cats are lactose intolerant) are quite harmful.
