Pet Nutrition Advice

for Optimal Dog & Cat Health

Manage your pet’s weight and health with a nutritional counseling session with a Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic veterinarian. Several common ailments can be better managed by modifying your pet’s diet; sometimes, it’s the most critical element of treatment.

By maintaining your dog’s or cat’s healthy weight, you give your pet the best defense against weight-related diseases and a wonderful chance to lead a longer, happier life. At Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians recommend Hill’s Science Diets, including Hill’s Science Diet Metabolic for weight loss and Healthy Advantage for maintenance and preventive nutrition. Metabolic and Healthy Advantage foods are a big part of our practice at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic, as are all Science Diet Prescription Diets.

Help your pet live a leaner life by making an appointment with our veterinarians for nutritional advice. While three extra pounds might have minimal consequences for you, they can be devastating for your cat or dog. Three extra pounds on a Boston terrier is equal to 30 extra pounds on a 150-pound human.

Maintaining your cat or dog’s optimal weight important, which is why your pet’s wellness evaluation includes nutritional counseling at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic. Feeding the wrong type of food or too much of the right kind of food can lead to problems. This includes obesity and arthritis as well as other metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, that can shorten the life of your pet or make him or her uncomfortable with age. Proper nutrition improves quality of life.
