Nutrition Counselling for Pets

Nutrition Counselling helps us to provide resources and feedback on the best types of food to support your pet’s wellbeing. Your pet’s diet is an important part of their health because it provides fuel for their growth and development. If you’d like to book an appointment to receive insight into which pet foods would best meet your furry friend’s needs or need general advice, please contact us at 204.488.1843.

What happens during a nutrition counselling appointment?

This is the best time to ask any questions about your pet’s nutrition. Whether you need help choosing from the wide range of pet food on the market or need a diet tailored towards their health needs, our veterinary team is here to help. First, we’ll evaluate your pet’s current diet to assess any gaps that we can help fill. Food is a useful tool to help build your pet’s immunity against infection and target areas of concern in their health, like the advancement of chronic diseases.
