Nutritional concerns impact every pet at every age. At Mountain Peaks Veterinary Clinic we explore your pet’s nutritional needs at each wellness visit, determining the proper dietary plan for today and for a healthy future.
Young pets require a combination of protein and nutrients for adequate growth and the proper development of muscles, bones, skin, and more. Adult pet needs include disease prevention and various health demands, depending upon factors such as size, activity level, lifestyle, and overall health. Senior pet concerns revolve around support of the immune system for maintaining health and quality of life, as well as longevity.
Contact the clinic immediately if your pet experiences dramatic weight loss or gain, has continuous diarrhea or vomiting, or is refusing food or water. Any sudden change in your cat or dog’s eating habits or a sudden increase or decrease in weight could be symptomatic of many underlying diseases.
