Nutrition

We believe that a premium diet is not just food but a preventative.

Nutraceutical: a term combining the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”, is a food or food product that provides health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease

Nutrition is highly important in your pet’s life. Pets require a fully balanced nutrition plan according to their breed, weight and age.

Here at Pet Doctor we highly recommend tailoring a nutrition plan for each individual animal. Dogs and cats have life stages where their nutritional requirements differ dramatically. As young animals they are required to be on a puppy/kitten food to assist with growth and organ development. Adult animals require a maintenance diet and senior animals require a nutrition plan to assist with the ageing process, health issues associated with seniors such as joint problems, oral care, kidney disease and many others.

Nutrition is a very simple preventative medicine. We offer a variety of dog and cat foods in tinned and dry formulations.

We stock and advise on “prescription” diets, which are specifically prescribed to an animal with diagnosed condition Eg Diabetic animals, would be given a food especially formulated for the diabetic patient.

Pet Doctor provides a wide range of Nutraceuticals from the premium range of pet foods from the following companies:

  • Royal Canin
  • Hills Science Diet
