Chronic Disease Management for Your Furry Companion

Much like humans, pets can suffer from chronic diseases requiring careful attention and management. Whether it’s diabetes, arthritis, or heart disease, these conditions often affect your pet’s quality of life. Dr. Blaylock and our dedicated team focus on understanding and managing these conditions to help your treasured pet live a comfortable and fulfilling life. It is important to keep up with regular exams, as recommended, to ensure we stay ahead of changes in your furry friend's health.

Veterinary Nutritional Counseling for Your Pet's Unique Needs

Proper nutrition is essential to support the unique needs of your beloved companion at any stage of life. Your pet's nutritional needs may vary based on specific health concerns, including chronic diseases or obesity. 

Here are some key aspects of nutritional counseling:

  • Puppy and Kitten Nutrition: Puppies and kittens usually require diets high in calorie count and rich in proteins, vitamins, and minerals to support their rapid growth. Dr. Blaylock will recommend a diet with the nutrients needed for healthy growth and a robust immune system.
  • Adult Nutrition: Adult dogs and cats require complete and balanced diets that provide them with rich nutrients and support their overall health. Their foods typically contain a healthy balance of animal-based proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and fibers.
  • Senior Nutrition: As pets enter their golden years, their metabolism and dietary needs may change. Diets specifically formulated for senior pets can help promote joint health, maintain a healthy weight, and lower the risk of age-related health concerns.
  • Weight Management: Weight management is critical to preventing and alleviating a range of chronic health concerns in cats and dogs. Nutritional counseling focuses on helping your pet maintain a healthy weight through healthy, balanced diets and portion control.
  • Specialized Nutrition for Chronic Diseases: Certain chronic conditions, including arthritis, kidney disease, or diabetes, may require specialized nutrition. We will help you select foods and supplements that support your pet's health needs, relieving their symptoms and enhancing their overall health.
  • Allergies and Food Sensitivities: Pets are sometimes allergic to certain foods, impacting their health and quality of life. Dr. Blaylock may recommend a specialized diet to help your beloved pet thrive.
  • Exotic Animal Nutrition: We offer nutritional counseling for exotic animals, including reptiles and pocket pets. We will help you determine the type of food and ideal feeding schedule to provide your pet with the essential nutrients needed for optimal health.
