Our pets' diet is extremely important to their overall health and wellness. At Southern Barker, our animal nutrition counseling in Lexington strives to empower animal owners to provide their animals with a high-quality diet over the course of each period of life. Proper nutrition can help improve many health-related issues including; food intolerances, pet food allergies, substantial weight gain or weight reduction, nutritional deficiencies, pet diabetes, skin and coat disorders, renal disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and poor immune response. Nutritional requirements for pups and cats vary due to many aspects like life stage, size, breed, exercise levels, overall health, and more, thus, a one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition will not do the job. We can advise you on which foods will be ideal based upon your animal's requirements, quantity to feed, and what to look for on pet food labels. Call us to set up a nutrition assessment for your pet.
