Pet Nutrition Counseling
Proper nutrition is important for preventive care, because it strengthens your pet's natural defense systems against disease. At Banfield, nutrition goes beyond what is fed to pets and how much. It also includes practical advice on exercise routines, how to switch foods, create an exercise regiment and how to encourage your pet to drink and eat.
Our nutrition counseling starts with a veterinary exam to determine your pet's body score. Your local veterinarian will then work with you throughout your pet’s life stages to determine the best diet and exercise routine to keep your pet at a healthy weight and protect him against disease. This advice will be based on your pet's breed, gender, temperament and any pre-existing conditions.
