As a veterinarian's office, we see firsthand that many pet's health problems are caused by obesity. Because this is such an easily avoidable issue, we are glad to talk about proper pet nutrition with you. It is very important that your furry family member establishes good eating and exercise habits early on and continues them throughout his or her life.
Always remember not to over feed your pet! Pet obesity can have serious consequences on your pet's health. Being overweight increases your pet's risk for diabetes, heart disease, joint problems, complications from anesthesia, and may decrease your pet's life expectancy by one to two years. Feeding your pet the right kind and amount of appropriate pet food from the first day he or she joins your family will help to prevent these serious health problems.
The DPC Veterinary Hospital staff are proud to offer nutritional counseling to each of our valued clients. We strive to educate each owner on the individualized needs of their pet. Our clinic conveniently stocks a wide range of prescription pet food from the reputable brands Hill's Science Diet, Purina, and Royal Canin. We encourage pet owners in the Hollywood, Davie, and greater Fort Lauderdale, Florida area to bring your furry family members by for a nutritional consultation today!
