Preventative and Therapeutic Nutrition

 

As much as we love our pets and care for them, we also appreciate the value and importance of a healthy and balanced nutrition to prevent illnesses and diseases. Appropriate nutrition plays a far more significant role than commonly realized in prevention and treatment of the most commonly seen diseases in pets. In the same context, it is known for fact that prevention is always more efficient and less costly as compared to treatment.

  

We consider the below mentioned as the top five common issues with pet nutrition which need to be addressed between our clients and us:

  • Over feeding/too much food
  • Too many treats
  • Free choice (making food available at all times)
  • Poor quality food
  • Human food/feeding table scraps

With hundreds of brand names and options on the market for pet food it becomes increasingly important to find a reliable source for a healthy and balanced choice. At Unionville South Pet Hospital, our veterinary clinic trusts only the most reliable producers of cat and dog food. We know that, at their facilities, the pet food we are prescribing has gone through considerable scientific research and development processes and has been tested and undergone strict analyses before being placed on the market.

 

We carry many of the fine products from Hill’s Pet Nutrition

 

Another very crucial point is to check the reliability of information available through the internet before letting this information shape your decision-making process. It is of the utmost importance to obtain guidance from your veterinarian who bases their decisions on scientific evidence when it comes to pet health.

In many cases, incorrect and inappropriate feeding instructions provided by non-qualified sources may lead to:

  • Obesity and related long-term disorders such as heart disease, arthritis, pancreatitis etc.
  • Allergies resulting in skin, ear and other organ disease
  • Imbalanced nutrition with serious consequences due to lack of minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids and other nutrients

Trust the information you get from scientific sources, your veterinarian and your veterinary clinic first.

In a nutshell, the prevention of a significant number of diseases in pets is as easy as choosing a tailored approach to your pet’s individual nutritional needs.

When it comes to the treatment of diseases, nutrition plays a remarkable role in ensuring smoother and quicker recovery. We cannot stress enough that relying on sources with scientific proof will make a significant difference in the outcome of your pet’s treatment.

Our veterinary hospital will be delighted to provide you with the best food choices available for your pet when they need it the most. We place our trust on pet food sources that can provide us with proven facts in order to grant you peace of mind.

We are proud to serve Unionville, Markham, Richmond Hill, Stouffville, and Scarborough, Canada and their surrounding areas.
