Feline health is often closely linked with body condition scoring. Felines who are underweight are often lacking essential nutrients whose absence could lead to major illness and may even prove fatal. Cats who are overweight are at a higher risk of developing serious diseases such as Diabetes and Arthritis. However, nutritional counseling is not only about reaching and maintaining the ideal body weight. It is also about formulating a diet plan that is tailored to your individual cat’s needs.
Prescription Cat Diets Are Personalized
Prescription diets can often assist in this goal as they range from top quality high fiber food to hypoallergenic food to diets that are engineered to combat a variety of illnesses or insufficiencies. Dr. Carnohan works closely with each and every client to ensure that their beloved felines are on the best diet plan available for their specific needs.
The Cat Care Clinic carries veterinary diets from Hills, Royal Canin and Purina. Dr. Carnohan believes in educating cat owners about cat nutrition and how to pick a healthy diet for their kitty. A healthy cat needs a high amount of animal protein with very little carbohydrates. Please see the The-Purrrrrrfect-Diet and Obesity pages for advice on how to choose your cat’s diet and manage their nutritional health.
