Therapeutic diets are specially designed dietary formulas shown to improve or treat specific health conditions. Nutritional therapy delays symptoms of illness or offsets the need for medications.
A wide array of therapeutic pet diets are available for conditions such as liver disease, kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, digestive conditions like pancreatitis or colitis, and even osteoarthritis and allergic skin disease.
Because therapeutic diets are indicated for pets diagnosed with a certain health condition, they are available limited to purchase through veterinary hospitals or with a prescription. Only feed a therapeutic diet to the intended pet under veterinary direction.
At Lone Mountain Animal Hospital we routinely carry therapeutic diets from companies such as:
- Royal Canin Veterinary Diets
- Hill’s Prescription Diets
- Eukanuba Veterinary Diets
