Nutrition & Weight Management

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little assistance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon offers professional guidance to help keep your four-legged friend in tip-top shape.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your animal family member consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

 

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for a dog or cat, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten your loved one’s life. That’s why making sure that your companion maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet ages, his or her nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying healthy and fit throughout his or her entire life.

Give us a call today to get started. We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.

      When my clinic of many years couldn't get me in with both of my cats who needed to be seen, this clinic took care of me. Both Dr Gass and Dr LaFond were caring and wonderful. A great atmosphere with very kind receptionist and technicians. I am very appreciative and found myself a new clinic.

      Top notch doctors and staff that care about my fur babies as much as I do. I've taken my pets to this clinic for over 30 years and wouldn't dream of taking them any where else. Whether it's a regular checkup, your puppy eating hostas or running into a trailer hitch, they are there to help you take care of your four-legged friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Joy & Tim Hogan, Reeses and Tripp.

      My cat Milo is horrible at the vets office. We hav even had vets not be able to get close enough to examine him in the past. Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon has been great about going out of their way to make sure Milo gets the care he needs without getting as anxious as he usually does. The extra effort is greatly appreciated by Milo AND me!

      Our family has been taking our 4 legged babies to this clinic since they've been open. I remember when they were in the brick building on the corner of Lombardi and Ridge Road. The staff there has always been spectacular, extremely kind and compassionate when our babies are hurt, sick or at the end of their life. Will continue to bring our babies there for the remainder of our days on this Earth.

      Went to the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for the first time today for my dog's check up and for a few shots. Somewhat new to the area and couldn't be happier with the service and care they gave from the second I walked through the door to the second I walked out the door. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and made a point to say hi to my dog and to ask me how our visit was going. Dr. Gass was excellent, very friendly and took time to explain to me the shots my dog would be getting since they were not typical ones we had the last place we lived. First visit but 100% recommend.
