Nutrition & Prescription Foods

Keeping your pet healthy is most likely a high priority, and finding available pet food is relatively easy for most pet owners, but the type of food that is easily found does not always work for every pet. Many pets have special needs. They might suffer from allergies, have problems with their thyroid, and have general weight control issues that go beyond simple portion control, or have issues with their kidneys. If your dog or cat is facing any of these issues, you may want to talk to your veterinarian in Richmond, TX about the possibility of your pet's quality of life improving if you start to feed them therapeutic diet pet food.

The Importance of Pet Nutrition

Hills has also come out with a non – prescription very balanced line of foods called Healthy advantage that is readily available at your veterinarian for cats and dogs that address issues such as keeping at a healthy weight, skin and digestive issues, grain sensitivities, and age appropriate food for puppies or kittens, middle aged dogs and cats, and senior pets. Since prescription pet food in Richmond is more expensive than what is available at the pet store or online.  Eating a healthy diet can prevent small problems from happening, or at least prevent them from becoming big issues.
