Nutrition Counselling

Ensuring your pet gets the nutrients they need through their various life stages.

Perhaps one of the most hotly debated topics in veterinary medicine is nutrition. With more diets out there than ever before, the myths and misconceptions continue to multiply – making it confusing to know just what food is best for your pet. Roncy Village vets and our highly trained and experienced team can help you sort out facts from fiction and truth from myth (including highly questionable advertising claims). This way, you can choose the best diet for your pet's long-term health and vitality. Due to ongoing advances in veterinary diets, we are witnessing pets staying healthier and living longer than in the past.

What happens during a nutritional counselling session?

We will assess your pet's weight, overall health, current diet (bring the food with you), and any specific nutritional needs. Before we can recommend a nutritional program for your pet (to target weight loss, weight gain, or any other health issue), a thorough examination with one of our veterinarians is required. This allows us to determine any underlying medical conditions. Armed with that information, we can suggest the best diet for your pet, along with proper feeding amounts and times. Four to six weeks later, we will re-weigh and determine if adjustments are needed, if your goals have been reached, or if your pet needs to continue on the prescribed plan a little bit longer.

Do I need to bring my pet's current food to a nutritional consult?

It is a good idea to bring your pet's current food diet to a nutritional consult. It can help the veterinarian in assessing your pet's current needs and establish new goals for the future.

Do you have an in-clinic store selling pet food?

Yes! We stock a wide range of dog and cat diets in our clinic. We're your one-stop shop for all your pet's dietary and nutrition needs. We are consistently educating ourselves to keep current on all the latest dietary advances and health information.
