There are so many misconceptions about pet nutrition out there. We understand how overwhelming it can be. This is why we offer nutrition counselling for our patients here at Crossroads. Whether your pet is a newborn, senior paw-tizen, pregnant, has allergies/other health conditions, needs to lose/gain weight, we can help you create an appropriate nutrition plan for their specific situation. Call us at 807-939-2616 to start the conversation.
What happens during nutrition counselling for pets?
These are consultations dedicated specifically to your pet’s diet and nutrition. We will ask you questions about your pet’s feeding habits (e.g. portion sizes, feeding style, the specific foods they eat) and any concerns you currently have. With your pet’s medical record in mind, along with a visual check on how they are looking that day, we will set goals and formulate a nutrition plan to meet them. This may include formula recommendations, new feeding techniques, exercise to try and more. We will also set up follow-up appointments to track your pet’s progress.

Is it safe to feed my pet “human food”?
Yes, but it is best to proceed with caution. Many human foods are completely safe for pets to eat, but there are those that are toxic for them. If you are unsure, please reach out to our team. If you think your pet is having an adverse reaction to something they ate, please contact us immediately or proceed to the ER center closest to you.
