Nutrition Facts for Dogs and Cats Through Every Life Stage

To keep their pet in excellent health, pet owners must skip past the bright packaging and bold claims to find the nutrition information on their pet’s favorite foods. Dogs and cats both require the perfect vitamins of carbohydrates, fat, protein and micronutrients to remain in great health. Here at the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County, we aim to help pet owners find the best combination of food for their furry friends. We assist with dietary changes as cats and dogs move through their early months to well into old age.

Nutritional Needs of Dogs and Cats

Dogs and cats have wildly different nutritional needs when it comes to remaining in top condition. The macro and micronutrient levels of vet-approved pet foods are designed with the species’ needs in mind. Cats, for example, need food that has a high percentage of protein and little to no fiber. Dogs, on the other hand, require fiber in their food to maximize the efficiency of their gastric system.

Health Concerns Caused by Poor Nutrition

Cats and dogs can develop serious health problems from a lack of adequate dietary intake each day. Vets may diagnose vitamin deficiencies, nerve disorders or degenerative diseases in pets that are not placed on the proper food for their breed, size and activity levels. The amount of food given to each pet also matters as high feed allotments can lead to obesity and related medical conditions.  

How Your Ferndale, NY Vet Can Help

Veterinary professionals are skilled in helping pet owners find the best diet for their furry friends. Vets utilize key nutrition information to find foods formulated with the right combination of ingredients. Your vet may suggest different ways to help your pet eat more or less to boost nutrition in smart ways. You can utilize the tips from your veterinarian at the Animal Hospital of Sullivan County to maximize the health of your pets.

Testimonial

Dr. Barbara Bodolosky is a very talented and professional veterinarian and we chose her to be our vet for our new rescue pup, Sweetie. We are lifelong residents of Sullivan County and have had many vets treating our pets over the years. We picked Dr. B because we had read many glowing and thankful reviews on various websites and noted that her practice is listed as #2 in the Top Ten Vets in Sullivan County. We were instantly drawn to her warm, calm, caring and practice approach to animal care which is also evident in her interaction with us on each visit. Dr. B is willing to spend lots of time with us as we learn about our newest companion and discuss the best care and training for our wonderful, Sweetie – no question is too small. She has been practicing in Sullivan County since 2001 and caring for animals since 1993 after leaving the military. {Note: Recently friends of ours needed to have a very large fishhook removed from their toy Yorkie’s stomach and they report that Dr. B provided instant help and was a skillful surgeon – all went well. Another friend of ours told us that several groomers had tried and failed to clip her Shih Tzu’s nails due to his crazed behavior and his painfully long nails were now impacting his gait – Dr. B and her team accomplished this taking 45 slow and gentle minutes and only charging $16} All of her office staff are friendly and always helpful – happy to meet and greet your pets too. It should also be noted that the practice is bright and clean and modern – even the grounds are kept immaculately and are free of any “messes”! Animal Hospital of Sullivan County is open most days until 5 or 6 pm and offers on-call emergency services 7 days a week from 7:30am to 9pm. They also board pets and maintain the only local crematorium if such services are ever needed. (Dr. B had been most kind and beyond supportive when we were faced with the illness and eventual loss of our beloved dog after 18 years of being a most important member of our family.) We cannot recommend Dr. B more highly and we thank her for her service and care.
