Veterinary Office with Staff Specializing in Pet Nutrition

Always remember not to over feed your pet! Pet obesity can have serious consequences on their health.

Being overweight increases your pet's:

  • Risk for diabetes
  • Risk for heart disease
  • Risk for joint problems
  • Risk for complications from anesthesia
  • Risk of losing life expectancy by one to two years

Feeding your pet the right kind and amount of appropriate pet food from the first day he or she joins your family will help to prevent these serious health problems.

The Importance of Feeding Your Pet a Healthy Diet

A healthy diet is not only important as a preventative measure; but can also aide in the treatment and maintenance of a number of diagnosed medical conditions. There are many to choose from, and our doctors are always ready and eager to discuss your options when making the importance decision of choosing a prescription diet for your pet.

During the annual exam, your veterinarian will assess your pet's body condition and discuss your pet's current diet. A specialized nutrition may be recommended. DPC Veterinary Hospital carries a number of prescription diets that are used to treat and/or prevent different conditions and diseases.
