Nutritional Counseling and Rx Diets for Dogs and Cats


Perinton Veterinary Hospital Pet Nutrition Services

Appropriate nutrition is the foundation of a long, healthy life for our pets. Perinton Veterinary Hospital offers nutritional counseling and prescription diets for your dogs and cats.

Nutritional Standards

Nutritional standards for pet food are established and maintained by the Association of Feed Control Officers (AAFCO). This organization ensures that pet foods contain balanced nutrition and the right amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates.

Your pet’s dietary needs change as they age. It is very important to make the right choices in diet for your pet’s stage of life. Puppies and kittens have different nutritional requirements than senior pets.

Nutrition for Disease Management
Specific disease conditions can be better managed through appropriate nutrition. Specialized diets are now available as part of a treatment plan for allergies, arthritis, cancer, gastrointestinal, heart, liver, kidney, urinary tract disease, dental care, diabetes, and weight management.

For questions regarding nutrition and your pet’s health, please contact your Perinton veterinarian.

Education and Awareness
Our complete in-house pharmacy gives you the benefit of starting your pet’s medication as soon as you get home. We are stocked with a broad spectrum of pharmaceuticals used commonly in veterinary medicine that can help your pet recover from an illness or surgical procedure.

Often ready at checkout, our trained staff is knowledgeable and gives instruction on appropriate administration techniques as well as daily recommended doses. Refills are easy and can be called in for quick and efficient pick-up. We also offer home delivery through Perinton’s website pharmacy.

Many pets have dietary needs that can only be met by prescribed nutrition. Our hospital carries a number of prescription diets that are often part of a total health care plan for your pet. Our veterinary staff is able to tailor individual nutrition plans based on your pet’s health needs.
