Pet Nutrition Guide
Our Mechanicsburg Vets Share Helpful Diet Tips for Your Pet
Feeding your pet a nutritious diet is essential for them to lead a happy, healthy, and long life. With so many options on the shelves today, choosing the right food for your pet can be overwhelming. When trying to make this decision, it is important to visit your veterinarian so they can perform a complete nutritional assessment. Your vet will be able to determine the appropriate food you should be buying.
Because nutrition is so important, we have hand-selected just a few brands to be sold in our hospital. If you’re looking for a specialized diet, call us and ask if we carry it. If we don’t, we can order it for you. We also carry certain prescription diets for those pets with even more stringent dietary restrictions.
