Nutritional Counselling

Giving your pet the right balanced diet is one of the most important ways to ensure that it stays healthy.

Pet diet recommendations will depend on a variety of factors, such as:
  • Species/breed
  • Age of your pet
  • Lifestyle
  • Your pet’s health
  • Weight of your pet and whether it needs support to gain/lose weight
  • Whether it has vitamin/mineral deficiencies

When you register your pet with us, we will discuss its diet with you when you come in for his/her first health check.  At Cambie Village Vet we are lucky to have Technicians that are certified to guide you the best food for your pet.

There are a number of contributory factors in pet obesity; they include:
  • Not following or understanding pet food feeding guidelines
  • Feeding pets human food which has a much higher calorific content than its pet equivalent
  • Providing too many treats and snacks
  • Lack of exercise

We do both visual and physical checks with your pet to establish whether it is overweight. Sometimes, it is not always obvious. Please do contact our team if you have any concerns or to book an appointment.

You can bring your pet along, and our technicians will be happy to weigh them for you – and let you know if your pet’s weight needs extra care and attention.
