Pet Nutrition & Diet

With so many brands of pet food and treats on the market, it can be difficult to know if the product you have been feeding your pet is really providing them with the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong. 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 certain balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates. 

At your pet’s next wellness exam, speak with one of our veterinarians about the type of food that will best suit your dog or cat. We are happy to help you choose a food based on your pet’s breed, health, age, and health condition.

Weight Matters!

Pets that are overweight or underweight are more susceptible to disease and injury and can shorten their life expectancy. Obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, liver conditions, and other ailments. Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital can help you manage your pet’s weight or weight-related health problems. We have found that the most successful outcomes in weight loss efforts result from clients who regularly follow-up with us by phone or during return visits to ensure their pet is on the right track.

These diets are specially formulated to address specific health conditions, and we carry a variety of diets that are designed to support any health issues your pet may develop during his or her lifetime.
