Dietary & Nutritional Counselling

Proper nutrition is an important part of your pet’s wellness regime. Boundary Animal Hospital vets will help you make healthful adjustments to your pet’s diet based on his or her age, weight, activity level, and the existence of any special medical conditions. Observing your pet’s eating habits and fluctuations in weight and appearance are critical in the early detection of medical conditions and any significant changes should be reported to your veterinarian.

It’s all about nutrients! Canada’s Food Guide recommends eating a variety of foods from each food group to ensure each person meets their daily nutrient requirements. Pet food formulators use a combination of ingredients, each providing a specific set of nutrients to complete the total nutritional profile of the food. By consuming a formula that is complete and balanced, dogs and cats can meet their nutrient requirements without the need of supplements, top-dressing, or rotating diets.
