We believe that a premium diet is not just food but a preventative.

Nutraceutical: a term combining the words “nutrition” and “pharmaceutical”, is a food or food product that provides health and medical benefits, including the prevention and treatment of disease

Nutrition is highly important in your pet’s life. Pets require a fully balanced nutrition plan according to their breed, weight and age.

Here at Pet Doctor we highly recommend tailoring a nutrition plan for each individual animal. Dogs and cats have life stages where their nutritional requirements differ dramatically. As young animals they are required to be on a puppy/kitten food to assist with growth and organ development. Adult animals require a maintenance diet and senior animals require a nutrition plan to assist with the ageing process, health issues associated with seniors such as joint problems, oral care, kidney disease and many others.

Nutrition is a very simple preventative medicine. We offer a variety of dog and cat foods in tinned and dry formulations.

We stock and advise on “prescription” diets, which are specifically prescribed to an animal with a diagnosed condition. For example, diabetic animals would be given a food especially formulated for the diabetic patient.

Pet Doctor provides a wide range of Nutraceuticals from the premium range of pet foods from the following companies:

  • Royal Canin
  • Hills Science Diet
