AAHA Releases Nutritional Guidelines for Dogs, Cats

AAHA Releases Nutritional Guidelines for Dogs, CatsThe American Animal Hospital Association today released its Nutritional Assessment Guidelines for Dogs and Cats.

The guidelines were developed on the basis that good nutrition enhances pets’ quality and quantity of life and is integral to optimal animal care.

“Incorporating nutritional assessment into the routine examination protocol for every patient is important for maintaining optimal health, as well as their response to disease and injury,” said Michael Cavanaugh, DVM, Dipl. ABVP, executive director of AAHA. “The goal of the new guidelines is to provide a framework for the veterinary practice team to help make nutritional assessments and recommendations for their patients.”

The guidelines were, in part, prompted by results that AAHA found through its compliance study, which was published last year. The study found that 7 percent of pets that could benefit from a therapeutic food were actually on such a regimen.

“The compliance discrepancy along with the many factors considered in assessing the nutritional needs of a healthy dog or cat, as well as the pet with one or more medical conditions, led to the development of the AAHA Nutritional Assessment Guidelines for Dogs and Cats,” the organization said.

The guidelines break down nutritional assessment into “screening” and “extended” evaluations. As AAHA described it, screening evaluations are performed on every animal. If a pet is determined to be healthy and without risk factors, it is cleared from additional nutritional assessment. When one or more nutrition-related risk factors are found or suspected based on the screening evaluation, the pet should undergo an extended evaluation.

The factors to be evaluated, as outlined in the guidelines, include the animal, diet, feeding management and environmental factors. AAHA noted that certain life factors, by themselves, may not call for an extended evaluation if the animal is otherwise healthy.

The guidelines outline what to look for in healthy animals...

Hill’s Launches Weight Reduction Program for Dogs

Hill’s Launches Weight Reduction Program for DogsHill’s Pet Nutrition Inc. of Topeka, Kan., today launched a weight loss program aimed at improving pet owner feeding compliance.

The Hill’s Prescription Diet Therapeutic Weight Reduction Program, available only through veterinary clinics, is recommended for dogs requiring clinical nutrition such as overweight, obese or obese-prone dogs.

The program was designed with four principles in mind, according to Hill’s. They are:

• Convenience and efficacy – Each starter kit contains pre-measured Hill’s Prescription Diet r/d Canine Weight Loss-Low Calorie Dry brand pet food and low-calorie biscuit packets customized to help dogs reach their target weight. The kits are available in a small breed size (target weight of 10 pounds – 35 pounds) with an up to five-week supply and a medium/large breed size (target weight of 36 pounds – 105 pounds) with an up to four-week supply. Home delivery for clients can be coordinated through a Hill’s representative. Replacement cartons to refill both the meals and biscuits are also available.
• Support – Pet owners are given a Therapeutic Weight Reduction Guide which includes the health care team feeding recommendation, instructions and tips. Pet owner online support is also available at PetFit.com. Veterinary staff can access support materials from HillsVet.com/weight.
• Taste guarantee – The kit comes with a 100 percent “great taste guarantee.”
