Veterinary Nutritionist in Coon Rapids, MN

Let’s discuss your pet’s diet and lifestyle. Diet plays an incredibly important part in your pet’s health. It’s not just a matter of having a tubby tabby or a flabby fido, although being overweight can affect their quality of life. The wrong kinds of food can have a wide-ranging effect on your dog or cat’s well-being. We’ll outline a diet based on the age of your pet, their lifestyle, and any medical issues they may have. Maybe we’ll even make room for a treat or two.

We’ll provide the best diet plan for your pet’s nutritional needs.

Your pet’s diet is an essential factor in their overall health, and we want to help guide your family in the right direction. According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 53% of adult dogs and 55% of adult cats in the US are obese or overweight. On top of that, 22% of dog owners and 15% of cat owners thought their pet’s weight was healthy when they were actually overweight!

Our team of experienced veterinarians at WellHaven Pet Health Coon Rapids understands that each pet is unique. Every cat and dog has their own nutritional needs. So we provide a personalized approach to fit their health goals. We’ll evaluate factors such as breed, age, weight, existing health conditions, and activity level to recommend the most suitable diet.

Our nutritional counseling services will give you the guidance you need to keep your pet in good health. We’ll work closely with you on food selection and feeding practices for your pet’s different life stages. If your pet has a medical condition, we can help you select the most appropriate diet.

Comprehensive Pet Nutritional Assessment and Advice

During a nutritional counseling session, our veterinarians conduct a thorough assessment of your pet’s current diet and health status. This evaluation helps us identify any deficiencies, excesses, or imbalances in their nutrition.

We’ll provide recommendations on:

  • Proper portion sizes and feeding schedules
  • Essential nutrients such as proteins, vitamins, and minerals
  • Special dietary requirements for specific health conditions or life stages
  • Transitioning to new diets or addressing dietary allergies and sensitivities
