NUTRITION

A complete and balanced diet is one of the fundamental keys to optimizing health and longevity in companion animals. Feeding a healthy diet is a common goal among pet owners and veterinarians but can be difficult to attain for animals with special needs. Pets that require nutritional support during critical illness or that have chronic diseases are at a higher risk of malnutrition, which can lead to undesired complications and a shortened lifespan. The Monument East Veterinary Hospital Clinical Nutrition Department is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the quality of life for dogs and cats.

Services offered by the Monument East Veterinary Hospital include:

• CUSTOMIZED WEIGHT LOSS PLANS
Studies have shown that dogs that maintain a lean body weight live longer, healthier lives. Weight loss plans tailored to the individual pet will help maintain lean muscle mass and help minimize negative behaviors for both dogs and cats.

•    HOME-PREPARED DIET EVALUATION AND FORMULATION
Whether a home-prepared diet is required for management of chronic diseases or is desired for a healthy dog or cat, the staff can give a comprehensive evaluation of the current diet and/or formulate a complete and balanced home-prepared diet to meet the individual animal’s metabolic needs.

•    NUTRITION EDUCATION
Nutritional modifications and strategies for prevention and management of specific diseases can be discussed during in-person appointments with owners.

•    CRITICAL CARE NUTRITION
Recommendations for nutritional support of patients with assisted feeding devices. This may be the selection of commercially-available therapeutic diet to use through an enteral feeding.

Manifestations of nutritionally related diseases can mimic other medical conditions and we recommend a thorough physical examination and evaluation by the patient’s primary care veterinarian.
