Good nutrition is the key to treating most problems encountered in the pet population today. Many of the conditions we see, such as musculoskeletal conditions, digestive problems, skin conditions, and allergies, can often be relieved with proper nutrition. The holistic approach to healing is to simply help the body heal itself, and a good diet is essential.
Most commercial pet foods simply fall short of properly maintaining the dietary needs of our pets. Pet food labels are required to list ingredients and a laboratory analysis of what the ingredients. Percentages of ingredients listed on labels in no way indicate what nutrients are actually available for digestion and absorption in a cat or dog’s body.
The best nutritional approach is to use wholesome fresh foods, prepared daily, for your pet. We advocate fresh raw meat and vegetables with properly prepared and added carbohydrates. The percentages of each of these three main ingredients vary with species and age.
We would be happy to discuss your pet’s nutritional needs with you and formulate a nutrition plan for their optimum health. Please give us a call if you have any questions or wish to schedule a nutritional counseling appointment for your pet.
