Have a question about young and adolescent pets?

Pet nutrition

Nutrition is essential for optimal growth and development. A complete and nutritionally balanced diet such as Hills vet essentials will support visual and brain development as well as bone and joint development.

We recommend only changing into an adult diet at the age of 1 year in dogs and 6 months or following neutering for cats. We can guide you through the process and adjust the diet to your pet's different life stages.

Remember that the introduction of new diets can be challenging at times so we advise a gradual introduction together with the previous diet.

Ask us more about our nurse clinics. We can give you dietary advice, help tailor diets to your pet and their medical or health needs, help you with weight loss programs and more.
