What your pets eat affects their overall health –and their diet may need to be tailored to their health concerns.

Pet Nutrition in Lake Oswego, OR

An animal’s diet plays a big role in their overall health. From obesity to allergens and gastrointestinal problems, the type of food we feed them can either help or hurt them.

Excess weight is a serious health problem for dogs and cats, and it’s unfortunately quite common. Too much food and too little exercise are the main factors in those extra pounds, just like in humans though there may be additional hormonal or genetic factors to consider. It’s important to discuss proper food and feeding habits with one of our veterinarians if your pet is overweight.

If your pet has chronically itchy skin, rashes, or tummy problems, it might be time to consider a different food for them. Allergies and sensitivities to ingredients are common in many animals. We can work together to find the best diet to keep your pet feeling their best.
