Prescription Diets

As a pet parent, it is incredibly important to pay attention to your dog or cat’s diet. That is why our team at Bristol Veterinary Hospital is happy to assist in suggesting a prescription diet tailored to your companion’s health needs.

What Are Reasons Why a Pet Might Need a Prescription Diet?

There are a variety of reasons why a dog or cat might need a special diet. In some instances, weight control is the main catalyst for selecting a certain type of food. Other animals might have a bit of an intolerance to certain ingredients or need special additives to ensure optimum health. Also, senior pets often require different nutritional needs than very young puppies and kittens.

Usually, a recommendation for food brand and formula is made at the animal’s regular wellness visit. This is also a perfect time to review with our team what your dog or cat is currently eating and see how it compares to their unique needs. We will be happy to answer any questions and make a recommendation.

What Prescription Pet Foods Does Bristol Veterinary Hospital Offer?

A few of the most common prescription diets we offer at our veterinary clinic are Hills, Royal Canin, and Purina. However, we periodically add to this list making it important to check back at your next wellness visit to determine which one is best for your pet.
