Diet, Nutrition & Weight Management
Get proper nutrition no matter what age.
Regardless of the age of your dog or cat, getting him or her started on a healthy preventative and wellness care routine is critical for long-term health and happiness.
Allow our trusted veterinarians at FAH to recommend the most appropriate diet that fits your pet.
The first step in the process is to determine what your pets specific nutritional needs are. Every pet is different, and what’s right for one animal may not work for another. Our experienced staff will conduct a thorough analysis of your pet’s overall health, taking into account such important factors as the breed, age, weight and the existence of any medical conditions or other health concerns.
Are you sure you’re feeding your pet the right food?
Some dogs and cats require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet.

Most of us remember being told that 1 year of a dog’s life is equal to 7 years of a human.  While this averages out, we must also take into account the size of the animal.

Example; An eight year old Great Dane is a senior citizen while an eight year old Miniature Poodle is only middle aged.

As our pets age there are a number of diseases and conditions that can impact them and shorten their lives and decrease their quality of life.
