Nutrition & Weight Management

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! Live Oak Veterinary Hospital offers professional nutritional counseling along with weight management services to keep your companion fit for life.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your pet consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. What’s more, many species of companion animal have their own special dietary requirements. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

 

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for a pet, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten your loved one’s life. That’s why making sure that your companion maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Give the team at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital a call today to get started. We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.

      We LOVE Live Oak and Dr. Lloyd! I took our Welsh Terrier, Noki, to Live Oak a couple of years ago when she was having skin issues when we were at Atlantic Beach for the summer (referred by another Welsh owner) and we were so impressed by the attention and care received there. We live in FL 8 months of the year, but summer at Atlantic Beach and will be at there permanently in a few years; we have Dr. Lloyd (she's the BEST) as our regular vet now, coordinating Noki's checkups and wellness care with our trips to NC from FL. Highly recommend this practice!
