Any sudden change in your cat or dog’s eating habits or a sudden increase or decrease in weight could be symptomatic of many underlying diseases. A good balance of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats is essential for maintaining your pet’s overall health.
The nutritional needs of our animal family members vary depending on their age, weight, and activity level. At Ulysses Veterinary Hospital, we are happy to answer your questions about the dietary needs of your canine and feline friends.
Pet obesity is also a growing problem that puts the health of your canine comrade or feline friend at risk. Obesity contributes to a host of pet health conditions including osteoarthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, breathing problems, kidney and heart disease, and a life expectancy shortened by up to 20%.
