Proper Pet Nutrition

 

Nutrition for your pet is one of the most important aspects of keeping him healthy and avoiding potential health problems. The number one nutrition issue we see is overweight. We encourage you to walk your dog. Not only it is good exercise for both of you, it is also fun social time. By following our advice on diet and exercise your pet may avoid joint problems, diabetes and arthritis.

Birds and reptiles have special nutritional needs. We will give you nutritional counseling as part of every regular wellness examination. Over feeding will result in obesity and may not resolve nutrition deficiencies. El Camino's veterinarians will advise you on the right diet to feed your exotic pet.

Feed the right foods, refrain from over-feeding, and your pet will thank you.
