Maintaining a pet’s nutrition can be a big factor in the fight against illness. Your vet is the best resource for a recommendation, but the best foods typically support some key dietetic goals:
- Encourage an enthusiastic appetite & food intake with tasty ingredients and easy-to-chew kibble
- Help maintain muscle mass with highly digestible protein and an adequate amount of essential amino acids
- Support healthy digestion with proven digestive support
Your veterinarian may prescribe medication to help your dog with related health issues, such as digestive care, pain management, etc.
Depending on your veterinarian's recommendation, supportive medication, radiation, surgery, and other treatment for dogs may be considered.
