Frequently Asked Questions

How Nutritional Counseling Can Help:

Many common diseases can be prevented by changes in diet, and therapeutic diets can also be used in the treatment of many health conditions. This is why we offer nutritional counseling for your pet at Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital. Some of the nutritional topics that we can go over with you include:

  • Basic nutrition and feeding practices
  • Nutritional recommendations according to your pet’s stage of life
  • Home-cooked diets and ensuring proper nutritional balance for them
  • Determining your pet’s daily caloric needs
  • Interpreting pet food labels
  • Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) and its link to grain free diets in dogs

Your pet’s weight, physical activity, medical history, and genetic predisposition are just some of the many factors we consider when tailoring a nutritional plan for you to follow. We have a variety of diets available for pets in all stages of life, including diets for maintaining overall health and for meeting specific therapeutic needs. Our staff can help you find the right one for you and your pet. Nutritional counseling is included as part of the wellness exam, but you can schedule a consultation anytime.
