Nutritional Counseling

catfoodThe right food can make a big difference in your cat’s health. That’s why we offer a wide variety of specialty and therapeutic diets for all life stages and disease conditions. We also carry special supplements for general wellness and for acute and chronic disease conditions.

The pet food isles can appear very intimidating when trying to decide on the right food. Not all of the foods in the grocery store or even the specialty pet supply stores have been adequately tested and meet AAFCO guidelines for nutritional support. Holistic, natural, grain-free and even organic on the label does not ensure these foods meet your cat’s nutritional requirement. Although a food may sound very healthy to us, as people, remember cats are carnivores. Carnivores have very little need for fillers and plant materials such as kelp, berries, carrots and other vegetables. Many of these ingredients can upset the delicate balance of a cat’s urinary system and can lead to urinary crystals or stones. Prescription urinary foods are the types of foods most prescribed once a cat experiences either crystals or stones. Prevention is always easier and less expensive than treatment once a condition  is diagnosed

We’d be happy to recommend a diet for your pet. Veterinary consultation is required for our prescription diet foods and our supplements. Stop in  today to  discuss your cat’s nutritional needs.
