Nutrition & Weight Management

What you feed your animal family member plays a significant role in the quality and length of his or her life. With so many options available to you, how can you truly be sure that the food you’re providing your four-legged best friend with is meeting all of their nutritional needs? What about weight? If your fur baby is carrying even just a few extra pounds, he or she could be at a much greater risk of developing a number of serious medical conditions. If you’re confused or unsure about these or any other nutrition or weight-related topics, the team at Lakeway can help!

Our veterinarians and technicians are highly skilled and experienced in all aspects of animal nutrition. We’ll start by conducting a comprehensive analysis of your fur baby, considering such things as age, current health, breed and certain lifestyle factors. This will help us to create a nutritional plan that is customized to your particular fur baby’s needs. We’ll also advise you on how often and in what quantity you should be feeding your fur baby for maximum results.

Next, we’ll tackle your companion’s weight. Once we determine what weight range would be ideal for keeping your fur baby fit, we’ll work with you to develop a customized exercise plan. Physical activity should be an integral part of every companion animal’s daily routine. Even if your fur baby is older or suffers from a medical condition, there are still plenty of options available to keep them active. We’ll help you determine exactly what that activity should be and at what intensity level.

At Lakeway Animal Medical & Surgical Clinic, helping your fur baby achieve optimum health is just as important to us as it is to you! Let us create the perfect nutrition and weight management plan that will set your four-legged best friend on the path to a lifetime of good health!
