The foods that our pets eat form the foundation of their health. So, to keep your cat or dog healthy, the best way to start is by providing a complete and balanced diet with high-quality pet food, treats, and nutritional supplements. However, choosing the right food, supplements, and treats for your pet isn’t always so straightforward. Each pet is different, and when it comes to pet foods, the options are endless.
At South Meadow Animal Clinic, our Fort Worth veterinarian can help you determine the best dietary choices for your unique pet.

Pet Diet Plans for Weight Loss and Weight Management
Obesity is a major health concern for both cats or dogs. Even being just a couple of pounds overweight can lead to serious health problems like diabetes, arthritis, and respiratory issues. Obesity can even shorten your pet’s lifespan. When a pet is overweight, we can help you work with your pet to achieve a healthy weight goal with recommended lifestyle, exercise, and dietary adjustments.
Individually Recommended Nutrition Plans
Different species, breeds, and ages of pets have slightly different dietary needs. Additionally, certain medical conditions can also affect nutritional needs. As pets grow, develop, mature, and age, their daily dietary needs change along with them.
From puppy or kittenhood through their senior years, our veterinarian can help you make sure your pet is eating an age-appropriate food and has the nutritional supplements that can help them develop well, avoid chronic disease, and manage age-related health concerns.
Prescription Pet Foods
While most pets don’t require a prescription diet, others can benefit greatly from these kinds of scientifically formulated pet foods. Prescription diets have been developed to address problems in pets with a variety of health concerns such as diabetes, food allergies, gastrointestinal diseases, urinary tract problems, and more.
