Nutrition & Weight Management

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! Lakewood Animal Clinic provides comprehensive, professional pet nutrition and weight management services to help keep your loved one healthy and fit for life.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your pet consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. 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 him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

 

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for a companion animal, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’s life. That’s why making sure that your loved one maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Give us a call today to get started. We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.

      I've taken my pets to Dr. Sandler for years. The staff is amazing & so is Dr. Sandler. The office is always clean, there is no horrible odors & they've always treated my furry ones with the kindness & love they deserve to be treated with!

      The staff here are excellent!
      We have two dogs, a 12 year old Maltese-Poodle mix and a 5 year old Maltese-Yorkie. Both have received excellent care. When our 12 year old injured her rear leg with an ACL tear we thought she may need surgery.
      Laser therapy was a treatment option and I'm so glad it was. After several months of therapy our little girl is back to normal activity. Dr. Sandler is wonderful!

      Very happy with our most recent visit where our Italian Mastiff needed to have his nails trimmed, ears cleaned and blood drawn. Everyone had a smile on their face (as well as sweat) after wrestling with our beast as he is not one to sit idly by...The Dr was observant and was frank and honest which we appreciated.
