Nutritional Counseling

You are what you eat! We here at Victoria Road Animal Hospital believe that proper nutrition provides solid building blocks to preventive health care. Providing our furry family members with a highly palatable, nutrient rich diet right from puppy-hood allows for proper bone and organ development. Continuing to provide quality nutrition though out your pet's lifetime helps preserve their health, allowing them to live longer and live better! Each one of our patients receives nutritional counseling upon a visit and physical examination. We believe in tailoring to your pet's individual nutritional needs.
