Nutrition & Weight Management
Good nutrition and a healthy weight are things you should strive to help your pet achieve over the course of their entire life. Without the right nutrition, your pet may be missing out on feeling his or her very best. What’s more, if your companion is carrying even just a few too many pounds, they could be more susceptible to various illnesses and diseases, such as arthritis and diabetes. The staff at Noah's Animal Hospital at Wheaton is well versed and experienced in every aspect of animal nutrition and can help get your pet on the right track to optimum health.
Our nutritional counseling begins with a comprehensive analysis of your pet’s overall health and well-being. We’ll look at everything from age and breed to weight, activity level and the existence of illness or disease, all of which will allow us to determine precisely what your pet’s nutritional needs are. We’ll then use this information to develop a customized plan that will have your pet feeling his or her best. We’ll also advise you on how much food and how often to feed your companion to avoid potential weight gain.
Next, we’ll assess your pet’s activity level. Exercise should be a part of your companion’s daily routine, even if he or she is older or suffers from a medical condition. Our experienced staff will work with you to determine which types of activities, and at what intensity level, would be best suited for your particular pet. We’ll then incorporate that into our nutritional plan to provide you with a customized diet and exercise program that will help your pet achieve and maintain his or her ideal weight and satisfy all of their nutritional and dietary needs at the same time.
You want what’s best for your pet, and so do we! Let us develop the perfect plan to help bring out the very best in your four-legged friend!
