Why is dog nutrition important?
Feeding a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight can increase life expectancy, quality of life, decrease the risk of many diseases (such as arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease) and help manage chronic medical conditions. We include a nutritional assessment and a weight evaluation in every health evaluation for every pet. We will also evaluate trends in your pet’s weight, as weight gain or weight loss can be signs of an underlying disease or may indicate a need to change your feeding regimen.
Latah Creek Animal Hospital carries Royal Canin and Purina for your canine’s specific dietary needs. Our diets include, but are not limited to, diets specific to kidney disease, gastrointestinal disease, dental disease, urinary disease, and weight loss.
