St. Francis Veterinary Clinic is excited to offer nutritional counseling as a service to pet owners.


Nutrition is so important for pets throughout their lives. As animals age, their nutritional needs change. There are puppy, adult, and senior diets to accommodate pet’s changing needs. There are also diets made to help pets with certain diseases and conditions. It is important to discuss your pet’s diets with our staff every time you visit our hospital.

If your pet needs the support of our veterinary staff, we can recommend a specialized diet and exercise plan for them, building a custom plan that will cater to their individual health. Veterinary support is especially helpful for pets that are experiencing weight gain caused by illness. In these instances, medication can be prescribed that will suppress the appetite and help stop fat absorption.

Nutritional counseling is a great way to educate and inform pet owners about the importance of maintaining a healthy diet for their pet. We will tailor the counseling and nutritional plan to meet your pet’s lifestyle, needs, health problems, and age.
