Good nutrition is a critical component of your pet's comprehensive wellness plan. Your veterinarian will work with you to establish a nutritious diet that meets your pet's individual needs based on his or her activity level, age, weight, and any special medical condition.

Changes in your pet's eating habits may be a sign of a change in his or her health and should be reported to your veterinarian, as this is a critical component of early detection.

Prescription and Non-Prescription Diets

We offer a wide variety of prescription and non-prescription diets available both on-site and online, including:

  • Hills
  • Purina
  • Royal Canin

Nutritional Counseling for Your Pet

Cordova Veterinary Hospital's staff has training as nutritional counselors, and we will be happy to assist you in any of these nutritional areas:

  • Diets for various life stages—Just like humans, pets have different nutritional needs as they age. We will work with you in establishing a nutritious diet for your pet as he or she travels through the various stages of life.
  • Nutritional counseling and education—Our staff will evaluate your pet's current diet, taking into account any special medical conditions he or she may have and will assist you in selecting a food that meets your pet's individual needs. Take a minute to talk with us about diseases and disorders that can be prevented with a healthy balanced diet.
  • Special needs diets—Several medical conditions require a specialized veterinary diet, including allergies, dental disease, gastrointestinal disease, joint disease, sensitive stomach, and urinary tract disease. Our staff will help you find a food that best meets the needs of your pet.

Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight is just as important for your pet as it is for you. Obesity can lead to a variety of health concerns, including diabetes and joint problems. Our veterinary staff can help you select a nutrition diet plan to ensure your pet maintains a healthy weight.
