An Emphasis On Dog Nutrition

At Broad Ripple Animal Clinic you will find that our veterinarians and staff place an emphasis on the importance of proper nutrition for all phases of your dog’s life. Whether your dog is a puppy, adolescent, adult or senior, each stage of dog’s life comes with some special nutritional considerations. 
Our veterinarians are here to help you understand your dog’s nutritional needs, including:
  • The best canned or kibble diet for the breed, age and activity level 
  • Items ok to add to your dog’s food - ie some cooked veggies
  • Healthy dog snacks
  • What to avoid feeding your dog
We can also help create a custom dog nutrition program taking into consideration things like breed, age, size, physical fitness, allergies and medical conditions. As with humans, proper dog nutrition can be both preventive and sometimes curative, as a balanced diet is essential for both supporting and maintaining optimal health. Of course, your dog cannot choose his or her own diet, and therefore the burden of making good health choices is on you. Understanding the nutritional needs of your dog is an important part of your responsibility to ensure they lead and healthy and happy life for many years to come.
