We Are Here To Serve You

Nutritional counseling is important because malnutrition or the wrong kind of foods can cause illnesses in all animals. Regular nutritional assessments at your wellness check exams are a key component in preventative care. Good nutrition helps maintain weight, keep hair and skin healthy, and can even be used to combat systemic illness such as kidney and liver disease, Diabetes, and hyperthyroidism.

The Good Shepherd team will walk you through what your pet should eat, how to feed them, how this changes through the stages of life, and will give you specific recommendations designed for your breed. Our nutritional counseling also helps in specific situations like improving your dog’s agility or ensuring prenatal health for breeders.

  • what your pet should eat
  • how to feed your pet
  • nutrition changes throughout life
