Choosing The Right Food

Many pet parents pick their pet's food simply by choosing a flavor that their dog or cat will enjoy, and a price point that works for their budget.

But the best diet for your pet should be formulated to meet all of your cat or dog's nutritional needs based on a number of key factors including their overall health, breed, age and lifestyle.

Whether you are looking to help your pet achieve optimal health, look their very best for competitions, relieve allergy symptoms or treat serious illnesses such as kidney disease, nutritional counseling with our Ankeny vets can help. 

Nutritional Counseling provides pet parents with the information they need to help their cat or dog achieve optimal health.

Veterinary Nutrition & Health

Many health conditions seen in cats and dogs can be treated wholly or in part with a nutritionally balanced diet that has been specially formulated to address your animal's specific issue.

Our vets at Creature Comforts Veterinary Hospital in Ankeny can provide you with specially formulated prescription diets and nutritional advice to help treat the following conditions in cats and dogs. 

  • Obesity
  • Kidney Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • Skin and Coat Disorders

Nutrition, Age & Lifestyle

There are hundreds of pet food brands lining store shelves, making it challenging for pet parents to find a food that's nutritionally matched to their pet's needs. Nutritional counseling can help you navigate through these complicated choices and decode pet food labels. 

Our veterinarians will provide you with the facts you need to make you make informed decisions about which diet is right for your pet. We can recommend foods that we believe will be most appropriate for your dog or cat based on your pet’s needs and your financial considerations,

Nutritional counseling also includes guidance on how much to feed your pet based on a calculation of your pet's caloric requirements.
