Nutrition & Weight Management

Is your pet really eating the best diet?

Pets, just like people, require a healthy diet in order to thrive. Unfortunately, many of the pet food products on the market today either lack adequate balance or are simply produced with inferior ingredients. As a result, many otherwise caring pet parents are feeding their furry family members unhealthy diets that aren’t supporting their nutritional needs. What’s more, obesity is becoming a serious problem amongst companion animals in the Naperville and Bolingbrook communities.

At Animal Health Care, we are experts in pet nutrition and weight management. More importantly, we’re prepared to partner with you in keeping your loved one healthy and fit for life.

Nutritional Counseling

Ever read the back of a package of pet food? Some of those ingredients are hard to pronounce, let alone understand what they are or how they’ll impact your pet’s health. That’s why it’s so important to have a Naperville vet in your corner who can guide you in the right direction. We’ll help you choose the ideal diet for your loved one based on his or her unique needs, including age, breed, weight and medical status. We’ll also provide advice on exactly how much and how often you should be feeding your pet.

Weight Management

A chubby pet may look adorable, but that extra body mass could lead to serious and sometimes even deadly medical issues. The good news is, with the right strategy, helping an overweight pet slim down isn’t hard at all. If your furry friend is getting a little thick around the middle, our Bolingbrook veterinary team will develop a plan to shed those excess pounds and help him or her maintain a healthier weight.

A Lifelong Commitment

As a pet ages, his or her body changes. That includes dietary, nutrition and weight control needs. For example, what’s required for a growing kitten is entirely different than that of an adult cat. Likewise, as dogs and cats transition into their senior years, they require a different diet and activity plan in order to stay healthy. As part of our commitment to your loved one’s ongoing wellness, we’ll monitor and adjust his or her nutrition and weight management strategy as needed.
