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, the experienced professionals at Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital are here to help!

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. 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 loved one for optimum results.

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for your four-legged family member, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’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 best friend 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 us 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.

      Dr. B is great, dogs liked him! Recently had my English Bulldog neutered and it was ent very well. He’s healing great, staff was great dropping off, picking up and they even called the next day to see how he was. Made it a much less stressful experience.
      Thank you!!

      The Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital and staff are wonderful. Dr. Bunnell and staff are friendly, caring and understand that a pet is truly part of your family. The care and compassion that we received when we had to put our 15 year old cat down was more than we could have ever asked for. Dr. Bunnell and staff are accommodating and will work around your schedule to make sure your pets needs are met. They have been wonderful to our new kittens that had health problems when we adopted them from the shelter. With their help, our new cats will lead a happy and healthy full life. We are very thankful for everything that they have done for us and our cats over the years. We wouldn’t trust our cats at any other veterinary hospital.

      The first experience was not the best. I made Dr. Bunnell aware of the issue and he was extremely apologetic and made my second experience much better! I feel confident that he knows what he is talking about when it comes to the allergies my dog is experiencing. He isn't pressuring in making you buy all sorts of products that may not help the problem which I definitely appreciate.
