Pet Nutrition & Diet

With so many brands of pet food and treats on the market, it can be challenging to know if the product you are feeding your pet is providing the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong.

Pet nutrition and diet

What you feed your dog or cat is essential to their overall health and well-being. As pets grow older, their nutritional needs may change. Each life stage requires a particular balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates.

Maintaining a Healthy Weight

Central Valley Animal Hospital offers weight loss and weight management services for overweight dogs and cats with weight-related health problems. These services help your pet achieve and maintain a healthy figure. Pets that are overweight or underweight are more susceptible to disease and injury; obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, liver conditions, and other ailments.

Speak with our veterinarians during your pet’s next wellness exam to determine the best type of food for your dog or cat. We are happy to help you choose a food based on your pet’s breed, health, age, and health condition.
