Animals have various nutritional requirements depending on their age, breed, and health status. Decisions regarding your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian . Dr . Stephanie Baldry has had formal nutritional training to learn what specific recommendations should be made during the lifetime of your pet.
For example, geriatric animals have significantly different requirements than young, growing puppies or kittens. A diet that claims to work for all life stages is not one of our recommendations.
Animals with diabetes or kidney disease also have specific nutritional requirements. It is not uncommon for your pet to be moved through five different diet choices throughout the various stages in their lifetime, depending on age, lifestyle, and possible disease processes!
If you think about it logically, would you feed your newborn baby the same food as you'd serve to an adult? Would you feed the same portion of food to a senior citizen as you would an active, growing teenager? For this reason, Dr. Stephanie feels each animal should be assessed on an individual basis. Baldry Veterinary Services will arrange to do an nutritional diagnosis in the comfort and convenience of your home .
