If your pet is on a prescribed diet, keeping him on that eating plan is essential for the best possible health and quality of life. Your veterinarian has carefully selected these foods based on your pet’s specific needs, so you shouldn’t make any changes without speaking to your veterinarian. If you see your pet gaining or losing weight unexpectedly, call your vet’s office and you can discuss any potential changes to the feeding regimen or any other health concerns. (And remember, treats are also something you should discuss with your vet.)
Be sure to plan your food refills in advance and ask your vet, or a member of their team, the best way to get your prescription pet food. Remember, delays can always happen when filling any kind of prescription, so it is always a good idea not to wait until the last minute to order your next batch of food.
