dog_cat-share-foodHere at West Houston Veterinary Medical Associates, we are very excited to offer nutritional counseling for pet owners in Houston and the surrounding communities.

Nutrition is important for pets throughout their lives. They need the right nutrients when they are young to grow big and strong. An adult diet is needed to keep grown pets healthy and at the right weight. As animals age, they need a senior diet to meet their changing nutritional needs. Then there are also diets made to help pets with certain diseases and conditions.

The best way to make sure your pets’ nutritional needs are being met is to discuss their diets and eating habits with our friendly staff at every visit.

A very common problem in pets that needs to be addressed is obesity. It is very easy to overfeed pets because they are good at begging. Also, many owners show their pets they love them by feeding them treats. Obesity is a big problem, and we are here to help you.

Obesity can cause real health problems for your pets, especially as they age, so it is very important to monitor your pets’ weight and diets. If your pets are overweight, now is the time to start a diet and exercise program to make them healthier.

Be sure to discuss any concerns about your pets’ weight with one of our friendly staff so you can get your pets on track for healthier lives.

If you are concerned about your pets’ diet, weight, or lifestyle, feel free to contact us today at (281) 493-4712. We would be happy to assist you in any way that we can.
