Nutrition and Weight Management
Feeding our pets is something we do every day to help prolong our pets lives. Here at Westview we stand behind foods that have been food trial tested. We recommend these diets because they have veterinarians on staff that formulate these diets and then conduct a food trial test to ensure the levels are correctly balanced. If you would like further information on food trial testing and AAFCO statements and what to look for please let us know.
We do not recommend any grain free diets. The FDA is investigating the link between grain free diets and heart issues, mostly effecting large breed dogs. Please call us if you would like recommendations on what would be the best way to switch off of a grain free diet.
Maintaining a healthy weight for your dog or cat is very important. If you feel that your pet is overweight and would like a detailed feeding guide for your pet to loose weight please give us a call. Below are the questions you may be asked.
● What brand of food are you feeding your pet?
● How much food? And what are you using to measure?
● How active is your pet?
● If your pet is not current with us we will need a current weight and technician may need to assess your pet’s current BCS
We currently offer the Purina line of veterinary diets. If you have any questions about these diets please give us a call. Below is a list of all recommended diets that have been food trial tested.
● Purina Pro Plan or Purina One
