Pet Nutrition and Exercise From Your Alexandria Pet

Naturally, you want to keep your beloved pet by your side for as long as possible and provide the very best quality of life for her. Keeping your pet healthy can be easy and fun because it means spending quality time with him. It also means doing basic things that should make you both healthy and happy in the long run.

Pet Nutrition and Exercise

Make Sure Your Pet Stays Healthy in Alexandria

In order to help your pet live a long and healthy life, follow these basic steps:

  • Pet Nutrition: Providing the best possible nutrition helps extend your pet's life and keep him in excellent health, too. Your vet is the best advisor about the proper diet for your specific pet. If your pet ever becomes overweight or needs a special diet for conditions like diabetes, your vet can ensure s/he gets the right pet nutrition for ideal health.
  • Pet Exercise: Exercise is just as important for your dog, cat or other pet as it is for us humans. Ensure your pet gets daily exercise with you, and if possible, has a safe enclosed outdoor area they can access whenever they want for pet exercise. 
  • Nurturing and spending quality time with your pet: This is extremely valuable in maintaining your pet's good health. Playing with your pet regularly shows you care and helps your pet stay emotionally and physically healthy. 
  • Veterinary Health Care: Your veterinarian is your guide to keeping your unique pet healthy over time. Your vet also provides expert pet dental care. Every pet is slightly different, with a different health and genetic history, different breed, gender, and "personality". Let our vet get to know your pet in detail with regular pet wellness exams, from birth through old age.

Early on, your vet helps ensure your pet develops properly, spays or neuters your pet at the right time, provides necessary protective vaccinations and helps to catch any illness or disease early. Pet health conditions are most successfully treatable when discovered and diagnosed as early as possible. Many diseases are preventable with regularly scheduled vet care in Alexandria. We call it pet wellness care or preventative veterinary care.

I have been using Ft. Hunt Animal Hospital for about 30 years and have always found the doctors and staff to be very caring. I appreciate the time spent explaining specific findings and answering questions. I never feel rushed.
