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.

      This was our 1st experience with CCAH. What can I tell you? This is the first time since we have been in LV that we feel like we mattered, our fur babies mattered. The staff is WONDERFUL. Dr. Perry is AMAZING. Eragon & Zephyr went in to be neutered. They got their shots updated, blood work, exam and then hea told us his surgery time also. He called us after the boys were done and in recovery. When we picked up the boys then then told us everything. How to care for them. I can not give them a five star rating for they truly deserve more than that. We are excited to have a place for our pets to go to. We will be bringing the girls next. They take care of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, exoctics; just not horses..

      Dr. Paul is my favorite! She performed two surgeries on me, saw me at minimum of once a month during my puppy years (hey, it doesn't have to edible for me to consume it) and was very compassionate and concerned with pain management.

      Dr. Paul understood my breed (min-pin) and explained in depth how my personality is a factor in my unhealthy habits (like eating princess rings, rubber bands, whoopee cushions). She made sure, in spite of my tenacious breed that I was able to "just rest."

      She has always gone above and beyond explaining the options available and making sure the best possible solution was opted for, both cost effectively and health wise.

      My partner and I just started taking our fur family due to bad experiences elsewhere. We have been helped by 3 different vets and their respective nurses/assistants and I cannot say enough of their genuine kindness and concern for our animals. For many our dogs and cats are our “kids” and their health and wellness is paramount. Everyone here seems to understand that. They are patient and listen to you without interrupting and provide you with the information you need to care for you pet. I wish I could remember everyone’s name, because they all deserve recognition. We saw a lovely vet soon to go on maternity leave on October 27th for our new kittyand her nurse was unbelievable. We came back on the 28th with the other 2 kitties. The vet on duty, her nurse, and the tech were so kind with our feral kitty. Nearly made me cry. Came back today with my dog for a follow up on treatment from another vet. We saw Dr. Gorman and her nurse Jen and a trainee Giselle. They were phenomenal! Please could you check who was working on all these days? I would like all of them to be recognized for their kindness! Thank you so much!
