At Bellevue Animal Hospital, we take a holistic view of your pet’s health, and that includes what they eat and how active they are. Both of these factors play a huge role in an animal’s wellbeing, and each may contribute to or be influenced by underlying health issues.
- At every wellness exam, we’ll discuss your pet’s overall activity levels, including any changes you may have noticed recently. We’ll take note of any changes to their weight or body composition since the last time we or another veterinarian examined them. We’ll also ask what kind of food they’re eating, including whether they eat hard kibble or wet food, if they receive treats on a regular basis and if there are any human foods they might have access to. It’s helpful to have feeding amounts and brands of food on-hand during a wellness exam.
