What is the importance of a balanced diet and the presence of a diet?
About the balanced diet
A good example is “taurine”, a very important and essential amino acid that is obtained through nutrition. Without it, cats can develop heart disease.
But when you have a complete and balanced diet, you don’t have to worry that your pet is deficient in nutrients. The right food is really all they need!
About the healthy weight
Of course, there are many factors – including exercise and lifestyle – that contribute to your dog’s or cat’s weight.
But nutrition is one of the key factors. The type of food you eat – as well as how much of it you eat – can have a significant effect on your four-legged friend’s weight.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new patients?
How many calories does my dog or cat need?
We will then turn it into a certain amount of wet food or dry food (or both, if they prefer a mixture) for eating. We will also help you consider the treats – because the treats in moderation are perfectly suitable for most pets!
The importance of a balanced diet
Sometimes, with lower quality foods, your pet may miss something. A good example is “taurine”, a very important and essential amino acid that is obtained through nutrition. Without it, cats develop heart disease.
But when you have a complete and balanced diet, you won’t have to worry that your pet is deficient in nutrients – and you won’t have to give them any vitamins. The right food is really all they need!
Does my pet need supplements?
Common examples include glucosamine (for joint health) or probiotics and prebiotics (for digestive and immune system health) – coenzyme Q10 for a healthy heart and energy in older patients, as well as omega 3 as a protector against oxidative stress.
We will let you know if this is recommended based on your pet’s age and medical history.
My pet has an allergy. What can I do?
Unfortunately, food sensitivity is a common problem for dogs and cats.
This often causes skin symptoms (such as itching, redness, hair loss, oily or smelly hair, and infections), but can also occur in other ways.
Most dogs and cats are sensitive to the protein in food, such as chicken.
But they can be allergic to almost anything, and often finding the culprit requires eliminating foods on a schedule. If this is recommended for your pet, we’ll explain exactly how it works.
If you suspect that your pet may have a food sensitivity or want to learn more about it, contact us to help.
