Nutrition and Weight Management

Investing in your pet's nutrition is an investment in their health and happiness.

Nutrition and Weight Management

Health Transformed, Life Extended

At Petzoic Vet Hospital, we believe that every pet deserves a diet as unique as they are. Our nutrition and weight management services are a commitment to enhancing your pet’s well-being, calculated one calorie at a time.

Our individualized nutrition plans are carefully created for pets who are:

Kittens or Puppies:

Supporting optimal growth and development.

Geriatric:

Adjusting to the changing nutritional needs of aging pets.

Eating Home-Cooked Diets:

Ensuring balanced nutrition for pets on specialized diets.

Managing Specific Medical Conditions:

Tailoring diets to aid in the management of gastrointestinal, liver, kidney, bladder, heart, thyroid or joint disease and minimizing clinical signs.

Overweight or Obese:

Initiating a health-focused weight reduction journey.

In Canada, an alarming number of pets face weight-related challenges, with statistics showing that 50-60% of dogs and cats are either overweight or obese. This is a health crisis, as excess weight can lead to serious conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and joint issues, significantly impacting the quality and length of their lives.

"It’s going to be hard to top the amazing care at Petzoic! The team is amazing, knowledgeable and when you are all finished, you are confident that your pet had the gold standard of Veterinary care. The prices are very reasonable. I was SHOCKED to find out that it is privately owned by a group of Calgary residents! It’s nice to support local instead of a huge corporation. Highly recommend this Hospital! OH, and check out Petfinity too! These folks have literally thought of everything! 5 Stars!"
