Dietary Advice

Learn more on how to feed your pet

Dietary advice is available from all of our Veterinary Surgeons and qualified Veterinary Nurses

Lifestage diets

Lifestage diets are so called because they are tailored to your pet's stage in life. Growing puppies and kittens have very different nutritional requirements from a fully grown adult. Similarly, an older pet will benefit from supplements for joint health and may require different energy levels.

Our pets are all individuals and some diets are more appropriate for some than others so please feel free to discuss your needs with a member of staff.

We only recommend top quality foods for your pets that we have carefully chosen for their content, quality and production method.

Dogs and cats

For dogs and cats we stock Royal Canin Lifestage. The 2kg bags are generally available in the surgery. Please come and have a look! For a larger bag, please contact us to order your personal bag by calling 0114 233 4673 (Halifax Road) or on 0114 274 7605 (Abbey Lane).

Prescription diets

Food is a very important part of treatment in many diseases. These include kidney, bladder, skin, intestinal diseases as well as pets with mobility issues and weight problems. Your Vet will prescribe these special diets if appropriate. Prescription diets are delivered to us daily by our suppliers and many are held in stock.
