We think everyone can agree that nutrition is an important aspect of a pet’s health. When it comes to answering the question “What food is best for my pet?”, there is no single right answer. Our goal is to educate our clients, without judgement, about all aspects nutrition, while taking into account their pets health status, so they can make an informed decision. A diet recommendation for a growing patient will be different from a recommendation for an adult or a senior patient with concurrent diseases. Furthermore, we understand that a thorough diet history can help reveal an association between diet and health concerns, prompting us to look for alternative options. The information on which we base our recommendations can change over time, depending on what current science and studies are telling us. Our hope is that we can work together in evaluating what diet is best for your pet - This starts with an open conversation. We understand that it the internet can be a valuable resource for our clients, but the information may be confusing or inaccurate. Ideally, we want our clients to visit sites that provide objective information based on science opposed to opinions, testimonials, or clever marketing. The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has some excellent and reliable resources. These resources help to answer important questions, such as how to evaluate a pet food, how to read a nutrition label and how to navigate the internet for reliable sources.
