Here at Lefferts Animal Hospital, we are very excited to offer nutritional counseling for pet owners in Richmond Hill, NY and the surrounding communities.
Nutrition is so important for pets throughout their lives. As animals age, their nutritional needs change. There are puppy, adult, and senior diets to accommodate pets’ changing needs. Then there are also diets made to help pets with certain diseases and conditions. It is important to discuss your pets’ diets with our staff every time you visit our hospital.
A very common problem in pets that needs to be addressed is obesity. Many owners overfeed their pets when they beg. They also like to show their pets their love by feeding them treats. However, obesity can be a real problem. Talk to one of our friendly staff members to get your pets on a diet and exercise plan to get them back on track to a healthier life.
If you are concerned about your pet’s diet, weight, or lifestyle, feel free to contact us today at (718) 849-3000. We would be happy to assist you in any way we can.
