Nutrition & Weight Management

Setting up your pet on the proper diet can lead to a long and healthy life!

Nutrition comes into play every single day of your pet’s life and plays a critical role in their overall health and well-being. Finding the right food for your pet can be a daunting task, especially with so many options out there. We can help.

Starting your pet on the right diet early in life is key to a long and healthy life for them, along with a proper exercise schedule. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for them. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

Have you ever wondered why we weight your pet during every single visit?

More than half of dogs and 60 percent of cats in the U.S. are overweight or obese. Just like humans, animals that carry around excess weight are at increased risk of developing many different health problems, like arthritis, diabetes, and more. Walk your dogs often and enjoy the bonding that comes with it. Find more time to play with your pets at home and you’ll feel great, too!

Like humans, our pets need a proper diet and plenty of exercise to live a long and healthy life. A total weight and nutrition plan from Hometown Veterinary Clinic will set your pet up for success.
