Helping people give pets their best®
Veterinary Nutrition Care can help you get your puppy or kitten off to a great start.
Puppies and kittens have a lot going on.
It’s easy to see that they’re busy learning about their world and into everything!
What’s harder to see is that every second of every day, they’re growing. Until kittens are about a year old, and until puppies are one (smaller breeds) to two (giant breeds) years old, they have nutritional needs that are very different from that of adults.
Meeting these needs can be a challenge. Feeding too much or too little can lead to big problems later on, and while there are many commercially-available puppy and kitten diets that can do the job, providing your youngster with something that seems more wholesome than a packaged diet may sound like a good thing. It can be problematic though. At this age, puppies and kittens are highly susceptible to growth defects caused by improperly-balanced diets. These early choices can have severe and lifelong consequences.
Veterinary Nutrition Care can help you to develop a nutrition plan that meets your puppy or kitten's needs, know how to keep things on track as they grow, and make sure you're happy with the choices you make for hem.
