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.

      After receiving denials of same day “urgent” appointments from our current vet (of 6 years) twice in a 6 month period, Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon took care of us and saw our dog in both times of need. We officially will never go anywhere else .

      We have always had excellent care, got in for appointments when needed and very accommodating around my work schedule. I have gotten test results back quickly and appreciate getting the results via phone calls from Dr. Gass.

      We’ve been bringing our fur babies here through many generations of kitties and personnel. They treat us and our cats as though we are family and friends. And who wouldn’t love a vet named Dr.Barker!?
      Last visit had our wonderful Casey Cat with a dental issue. As I’m in dentistry myself I was very pleased that my first encounter with Dr.Jesse Hermès had her explaining in detail what the issue was and the remedy she had to render. It was easy to tell she loves her work and our furry friends!
      Drs. Gass and Lafond are also high on my list of caring vets through the years of advice and kindness they’ve displayed caring for our furry companions. And the fact that their staff has been there for years is a testament to it being a great place to work! Thanks to you all and many Happy Purrs sent your way!
