HEALTH MAINTENANCE CARE

Nutritional Care

Pets are living longer, healthier lives than ever before and a big part of why that is happening is our expanded knowledge on the importance of proper nutrition to overall health.  This fact is not lost on the doctors of Millwood Animal Hospital. During your pet’s comprehensive physical examination we evaluate his or her body condition and give recommendations based on what we see.

For most pets these recommendations will include information on proper serving size and other feeding strategies to maintain optimal body weight and nutritional health. However, some pets have more serious nutritional challenges or chronic conditions such as diabetes or renal issues that require veterinary treatment. This can include more intensive feeding strategies, specialized foods, and prescription diets.

We also carry a diverse inventory of prescription foods and high-quality nutritional products. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you. We can also offer advice and provide information about diets that benefit specific medical conditions such as liver disease, bladder and kidney stones, renal failure, food allergies, diabetes and other conditions.
