Proper Nutrition Makes a Difference

The Mountain View Veterinary Hospital team believes good heath starts on the inside. We know chubby pups and fat cats may look cute, but those extra pounds are very hazardous to an animal’s health. Overweight pets are at a greater risk of experiencing diseases and conditions such as:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Shorter life expectancy
  • High blood pressure
  • Respiratory disease
  • And the list goes on…

A healthy diet combined with an exercise regimen is the best way for your pet to get back to an ideal weight. Our veterinarians are very knowledgeable regarding animal nutrition, and can help you create a weight loss plan for your pet to get them back to a healthy weight. We recommend giving your pet Hill’s Science Diet or Royal Canin pet food. We carry complete lines of both products, and we would be happy to give you more information at your next visit. Prescription diets offered by Royal Canin and Hill’s are great for the support and improvement of a variety of health concerns in cats and dogs, including:

  • Skin and food allergies
  • Digestive Issues
  • Liver issues
  • Diabetes
  • Joint health
  • Urinary issues
  • Heart issues
  • Recovery from illness or surgery
  • And more…
