Nutritional Counseling

Optimizing Your Pet’s Health Through Proper Nutrition

At West Orange Veterinary Hospital, we recognize that nutrition plays a fundamental role in your pet’s overall health and well-being. Proper nutrition provides the foundation for an effective immune system, strong muscles and bones, and a healthy coat, helping your pet live a long and vibrant life.

Our experienced veterinary team is here to guide you in selecting the right diet for your pet’s unique needs, from puppies and kittens to adult dogs and cats, and even senior pets.


Tailored Nutrition Plans for Every Life Stage  

Just as humans have different nutritional requirements at different stages of life, so do our pets. Puppies and kittens require a diet that supports their rapid growth and development, while adult dogs and cats benefit from a balanced diet that helps them maintain a healthy weight and energy level.

Senior pets may have specific dietary needs to support their aging bodies and manage age-related health conditions. Our veterinary team will work with you to develop a customized nutrition plan that meets your pet’s specific life stage, health status, and individual preferences.


Quality Nutrition for Optimal Health  

Not all pet foods are created equal, and choosing the right diet for your pet can be overwhelming.

Our veterinarians recommend high-quality commercial pet foods that meet the nutritional standards established by organizations such as the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and the World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA).

These foods are formulated to provide the essential nutrients your pet needs to thrive. 


Specialized Diets for Health Conditions

In some cases, pets may require specialized diets to manage chronic health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, or food allergies.

Our veterinary team is trained to prescribe therapeutic diets that are specifically formulated to support your pet’s health needs and improve their quality of life.

These diets may be designed to promote weight loss, regulate blood sugar levels, support kidney function, or eliminate potential allergens from your pet’s diet.

We will work closely with you to ensure your pet’s dietary needs are met and their health condition is effectively managed through nutrition.


Nutritional Guidance for a Lifetime of Health  

Our veterinary team is here to provide ongoing nutritional guidance and support to help you make the best choices for your pet’s health throughout their life.

Whether you have questions about selecting the right diet, transitioning your pet to a new food, or managing a specific health condition through nutrition, we’re here to help.
