Nutrition and Weight Management

Good nutrition is so important for your pet’s health and wellbeing. There is a vast range of diet options for your pet and with information coming from all angles it can be hard to know what to feed. An good quality diet will improve energy, skin and coat, dental health and stool consistency.

Pet obesity is also one of the biggest problems facing dogs and cats today. Nine times out of ten this is because of more calories going in versus out. Being overweight predisposes cats and dogs to many medical issues including diabetes, arthritis and heart and lung conditions, not to mention slowing your pet down and leaving them lethargic.

If you are struggling to get your pet to lose weight, get in touch with us. We can rule out underlying metabolic conditions causing weight problems and advise on an appropriate diet to help your pet lose weight safely.

We stock a full range of Royal Canin diets, who have examined the needs of cats and dogs according to their size, age, activity levels and lifestyle as well as for specific medical conditions.

As a result, they have developed dozens of diets so that your pet receives the right levels of energy and nutrition, no matter what stage of life they’re at. There are a number of health conditions in which a specialised diet is a vital part of treatment, such as kidney, bladder or liver disease as well as skin and gastrointestinal conditions.

Given all this variety there is no one size fits all! We would be happy to discuss your pets individual dietary requirements with you.
