Feeding the correct amount of an appropriate well balanced diet is vital for the good health of our pets. The type of food required will vary, dependent upon the species of pet you have, its breed, size, age, activity level and any possible special requirements such as pregnancy or particular illnesses e.g. diabetes, kidney disease, food intolerance etc.
Obesity is becoming an increasing problem in our pets, and with it comes a whole range of health related problems, just as it does in humans. Making sure that your pet either maintains or is brought back to a satisfactory weight is extremely important for his or her overall health.
There is a bewildering range of diets currently available for pets, and we have a great deal of experience in ensuring that the diet which is given is appropriate to different animals' nutritional needs. If you would like to learn more about diets for your particular pet, please see our more detailed information sheets about nutrition in dogs, cats and rabbits.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish to make an appointment to discuss any aspect of your pet's nutritional needs with one of our general practice vets.
