Diet & Nutrition

Maintaining a healthy body weight is a very important aspect of a pet’s overall physical health. Good nutrition can help provide your pet with a happier, safer, and longer life. There are many nutritional supplements that can help fight against disease, maintain a proper weight, and promote the overall well-being of any animal.

Discussing Diet & Nutrition with our Veterinarians

Proper nutrition is just as valuable in maintaining your pet’s health as it is for your own well being. Your New England Animal Medical Center primary care veterinarian will discuss diet with you during some office visits. In particular, we spend time on nutritional counseling during pediatric visits as well as geriatric visits. Some of our clinic technicians are also specifically trained to answer your questions about diet and nutrition.

"Rx" Diets & Why We Offer Them

The New England Animal Medical Center does not sell conventional dog and cat food since clients can obtain these less expensively at supermarkets or pet store outlets, however, we do offer “Rx” diets. These are foods that are formulated to treat specific medical conditions in dogs and cats. There are foods for pets with kidney disease, heart disease, and gastrointestinal disease to name a few. These therapeutic diets can help keep your pet comfortable while increasing life span when utilized with appropriate exercise programs and appropriate medications when indicated.

Diet & Nutrition services at NEAMC are offered to our current General Practice patients. If you have questions about setting up a new patient visit, please reach out (508) 583-1600!
