General Nutrition

General Nutrition

There are the high quality foods carried at Manitoba Road Animal Hospital. Each is formulated for the specific life stage of your pet! From puppyhood to senior days, provide the best nutrition and extend the healthy and longevity of your beloved dog or cat.

Lifestage nutrition is the practice of feeding foods designed to meet a pet’s optimal nutritional needs at a specific age or physiologic state. The concept of lifestage nutrition recognizes that feeding either below or above an optimal nutrient concentration can, over various timeframes, adversely affect health-sometimes irreversibly.

Lifestyle nutrition is based on the premise that some dogs and cats have special needs. Also, some pet owners interact with their pets differently than others, or simply prefer different foods. For example, a pet owner who runs six miles daily with her dog may need to feed a food that provides more energy than an owner who has a more sedentary dog.

And remember “the Golden Rules for the Golden Years”

  • Balance fat and calorie intake to energy output to avoid unhealthy weight gain
  • Limit salty foods and treats
  • Gently increase healthy fibre

We can also get any of these formulas in a can variety too so you can add some variety to your pet’s daily feeding schedule.
