The food and treats you feed your pet are essential for maintaining their overall health. As your pet grows older, his or her nutritional needs will begin to change because each life stage requires a specific balance of vitamins, minerals, protein, fats, and carbohydrates. At your pet’s next wellness exam, the Foothills Veterinary Hospital, LLC staff can help you choose the food and treats that are right for your dog or cat.
Our staff can review your pet’s age, breed, daily activity level, eating habits, and existing medical conditions to implement a nutrition plan tailored to your pet. Our goal is to help guide you in selecting the best food options for your dog or cat, and our nutritional counseling services and products will help your pet stay in good health.
Prescription diets are formulated and designed to meet specific nutritional needs required for certain illnesses and conditions including diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, obesity, arthritis, allergies, pancreatitis, cancers, and many more. At Foothills, we understand that every animal is unique, and have done the research to aid our clients in choosing the Brand and diet that is best for their family's pet. We carry Hill’s, Royal Canin, and Purina options.
