Nutritional counseling is an important part of our jobs here at Hidden Valley Animal Hospital. We are very excited to offer support to our clients in Independence, MO and our surrounding communities.

Nutrition is an important part of pets’ lives. As they age, their nutritional needs change. That is why there are so many different formulas, including puppy, adult, and senior. There are also diets made for pets who have certain diseases and conditions. We recommend discussing nutrition with our friendly staff at every visit.

Obesity is a very common problem because owners like to overfeed their pets. Many also feed treats as a way to show their pets how much they love them. However, obese animals can have many health problems, so it is important to get your pets on a diet and exercise program. The sooner you start, the sooner you can get your pets on a healthier path.

Feel free to contact us today at (816) 795-7387, if you are concerned about your pets’ diet, weight, or lifestyle. We would be happy to assist you in any way we can.
