At Countryside Veterinary Hospital, we believe that the best medicine is preventive medicine. It is our number one goal to keep your pet healthy, which we accomplish by providing annual wellness visits, through the use of preventative vaccines and medications, and by providing the best nutrition available for your pet.

Cat and Dog Eating and DrinkingYour pet's diet and weight play an important role in his or her health and longevity. The right nutritional balance and a healthy weight can bring your pet from a state of merely existing, to achieving his or her optimum performance. It can even help manage existing medical conditions in a way that improves your pet's quality of life. Our veterinarians, along with specially trained employees called Nutrition Advisors, can help you choose a diet to support your pet's health throughout every life stage.

To help you feed your pet appropriately for their size, we can help you choose a food that is not energy dense, or high in calories, as well as suggest an amount to feed each day to keep your pet at their healthy weight. We recognize that it can be difficult to know how to help your overweight pet lose weight. Sometimes it is not easy to follow a diet plan or get out and get moving. To help, we offer Weight Loss Consultations, along with Exercise Plans designed by our Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practioners.

Let us get your pet on the path to a lifetime of optimum health, one meal at a time. Call us at (978) 256-9555 and schedule a Nutrition or Weight Loss Consultation, or just stop by to have your questions answered by our staff.
