Pet Dietary Counseling in Saugus

Addressing Your Pet’s Nutritional Needs

From the very first day you bring a new pet home through the final days of their life, nutrition plays a critical role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. Many pet owners take nutrition for granted, in part because there are so many nutritionally complete commercial diets that have taken the guesswork out of choosing a suitable diet for a pet.

However, did you know that your pet’s nutritional needs change with age and activity level? Did you know that specially formulated diets can help manage various medical conditions, including kidney disease, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease? Do you know how many calories your pet should have each day and whether you are over- or underfeeding? Are you comfortable reading and interpreting pet food labels?

Whether your pet has special dietary needs or simply needs to shed (or gain) a few pounds, our nutritional counseling services can help you accomplish your goals and keep your pet in good health. We offer counseling in diet selection and feeding practices for pets during various life stages, such as growth, pregnancy, nursing, and the “golden years.” If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet to suit your pet’s needs.

We will provide guidance regarding your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage, including dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance.
