Pets, like people, are unique and individual; their needs are based on their size, age and health issues. No matter what their individual needs are, it’s important that pets maintain a healthy weight, eat a nutritious diet, and receive adequate exercise in order to live a longer life with fewer health issues.
Dogs and cats thrive when they are fed a healthy, balanced diet. Currently, however, pet obesity is a huge problem in the United States. When pets are overweight, it creates a tendency towards diabetes, heart disease, joint problems and other chronic health conditions.
Pet nutritional counseling at Miller Animal Hospital will take the guesswork out of what your pet should be eating and how much. Dr. Miller will design a program for your pet based on the species, breed, age and health. The purpose of nutritional counseling is to provide you with practical advice and simple choices.
Throughout your pet’s lifetime, we can help guide you to age appropriate diets, portion control, exercise programs and dietary supplements. All of this is designed to help your pet live a happier, longer, trouble-free life.
