Fairview Veterinary Hospital Pet Nutrition Services: Beyond the Standards
The simplest and most effective step towards maintaining your dog or cat’s health is to keep them on a healthy diet. At Fairview Veterinary Hospital, our staff can help you create a customized diet for your pet. We also carry a full range of specialty foods to address any special or prescription nutritional needs that your pet may require.
Nutritional standards for pet food are established and maintained by the Association of Feed Control Officers (AAFCO). This organization ensures that pet foods contain balanced nutrition and the right amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.
Your pet’s dietary needs change as they age. It is very important to make the right choices in diet for your pet’s stage of life. Puppies and kittens have different nutritional requirements than senior pets.
Disease Management Through Nutrition
Pets who suffer from illness or disease may have specialized dietary needs for conditions. These include allergies, cardiovascular disease, liver and kidney issues, and urinary tract and other problems. We stock prescription foods designed to meet these specialized needs.
Education and Awareness
At Fairview Veterinary Hospital, we value education as much as we value healthcare. We pride ourselves on educating pet owners to maintain their pet’s health and wellness at home. Whatever your pet’s special conditions may be, our veterinarians and staff will educate you on the health and nutrition needs that your pet requires.
