Nutrition & Behaviour Counselling

Just as with humans, a pet’s nutritional needs change with age and lifestyle and can also be based on a medical condition. Veterinary nutrition and behavior counseling services are specialized offerings provided by veterinary professionals to address the dietary and behavioral needs of animals.

Dietary Assessment: We can help to evaluate the current diet of the animal, considering factors such as age, breed, weight, activity level, and any existing health conditions.

Customized Diet Plans: Based on the assessment, veterinarians develop customized diet plans tailored to the specific nutritional requirements of the animal.

Weight Management: Nutrition counseling may include strategies for weight management, whether the goal is weight loss or weight gain, to ensure the animal maintains a healthy body condition.

Specialized Diets: In cases of medical conditions like obesity, diabetes, allergies, or kidney disease, we offer specialized diets to manage or alleviate symptoms.

Nutritional Education: Pet owners receive education about proper feeding practices, portion control, and the importance of balanced nutrition for their pet's overall health and well-being.

2. Behavior Counseling:

Behavior Assessment: Veterinary behaviorists assess the animal's behavior, considering factors such as aggression, anxiety, fear, phobias, compulsive behaviors, and inappropriate elimination.

Behavior Modification Plans: Based on the assessment, behaviorists develop individualized behavior modification plans to address specific behavioral issues.

. • Environmental Enrichment: Recommendations may include environmental enrichment strategies to improve the mental stimulation and overall well-being of the animal.

Medication Management: In some cases, behavior counseling may involve the use of medication alongside behavior modification techniques to manage severe behavioral problems.

Combining nutrition and behavior counseling services allows veterinarians to take a holistic approach to animal health, addressing not only physical but also behavioral aspects that contribute to the overall well-being of the animal. This integrated approach can lead to improved health outcomes and better quality of life for pets and their owners.
