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 guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, we’re here to help! The professional nutrition and weight management services at Creature Comforts are designed to point you both in the right direction once and for all.

 

A Balanced Diet

What your pet 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. What’s more, some species have special dietary requirements. 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 pet, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten your best friend’s life. That’s why making sure that your loved one 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 in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

 

Give the experienced team at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital 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.

      First visit with Dr. Borba...both Cam and I think she's terrific. She takes her time, answers questions honestly, & has the patience to deal with an anxious dog with a sense of humor. Recommend Dr Borba & this practice highly ��

      Huckleberry loves going to Creature Comforts! He gets excited as soon as we pull in the parking lot. He loves Uncle Mike, Dr. Paul, and everyone! He's a handful and they always take such good care of him and are patient with him even when he a spastic bundle of energy. We have boarded him here several times when out of town and it's always great. We love Creature Comforts!

      Very super nice and caring staff. We went to our local pet store and they referred us to them since our breaded dragon was not eating and acting his normal self. Gave them a call and they sneaked us in just before closing today. They looked at him and assisted us what could be wrong and to do xyz for the next couple days. Becuase we were referred they did not charge us for the exam. The doctor and staff listened and were genuine. Will definitely refer people to this place

      I couldn’t see how my experience could have been better as everyone was very friendly and helpful. The staff is very knowledgeable and also has a vet that knows about rats and how to help keep them healthy and doesn’t try to nickel a dime you.

      I can't say enough good things about this facility. My fur face absolutely loves boarding here. I have a house full of "exotics". Dr Gorman is one of the best in the city for rat care. The ladies at the front desk are great and are very empathetic when it is time to help our loved ones over the rainbow bridge.
