Your Source for Pet Nutrition in Madisonville LA
Pets need the right mix of nutritional elements to meet their individual needs. This is not a challenge on an everyday basis, but it poses specific problems for pets with special health conditions such as obesity or a systemic illness.
Fortunately, Tchefuncte Animal Hospital has the right options to help you help your pet. Our animal hospital in Madisonville LA can provide high-quality products such as Royal Canin prescription dog food to give your pet exactly the nutritional assistance he needs.
Nutritional Challenges for Dogs and Cats
Dogs and cats are similar to humans in many respects, but they diverge somewhat where nutrition is concerned. Many of the foods we enjoy every day, from grapes and raising or garlic and onions, are actually toxic to our pets, while the typical table scraps contain pet-unfriendly levels of fats, chemicals, sugar, and salt. Dogs and cats also differ from each other in their nutritional needs; for example, cats are carnivores who must receive several key amino acids through an all-meat diet, while dogs are omnivores with more food options.
Our veterinarian in Madisonville LA also sees many pets who have specific nutritional needs due to underlying illnesses. The most obvious example is obesity, a dangerous condition that opens the door to many serious health complications.
Other conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney failure, thyroid dysfunction and chronic inflammatory disorders may also call for specific reductions or enhancements of key nutrients and other ingredients to compensate. This is why our animal hospital in Madisonville makes a point of providing specialized nutritional counseling and therapeutic diet pet food products.
