At Ark Animal Hospital in Orillia, we’re proud to carry the most respected names in hypoallergenic and other prescription food and treats to keep our furry friends healthy. Choose from respected brands such as:
The Association of American Feed Control Officials - In the US, feed regulations are enforced by state and federal regulatory officials who provide subject matter expertise in animal science, animal nutrition, feed label compliance, field operations for inspection staff and program administration. AAFCO provides a forum for these regulatory officials to come together and create model guidance to ensure that the regulation of animal feeds is as uniform as possible from state to state. AAFCO Membership includes not only US state and federal regulatory officials but has grown to include international membership of Canada.
What to feed your furry loved one can be a confusing and overwhelming question! The importance of high quality nutrition throughout their lives can’t be overemphasized.
There are an enormous variety of pet foods on the market, and reading labels can be baffling and confusing way to try and figure out the best food for your pet. Unfortunately, the information gathered by reading the label does not help determine the nutritional value of the food. For example, the percentage of protein listen in the guarantee analysis on a pet food label refers to a minimum percentage of protein, not the actual amount.
We only recommend foods from companies we trust will provide high quality, consistent products; these companies provide us with all of the nutritional information about their products so we can make an educated recommendation for your pet.
We are pleased to stock Hill’s line of pet foods as our primary line, both therapeutic and maintenance diets.
We also have access to other lines of food if your pet is already on another brand and you would like to continue with that brand, or if the veterinarian recommends a different brand of diet that would be a better fit.
Please don’t hesitate to call or drop in to discuss any concerns or questions about diets; here is a link to Hill’s pet foods website that might be helpful:
We also have a fully stocked pharmacy should your pet require prescription medications.
Pick up routine products such as flea and heartworm prevention medication, as well as the toys that strengthen the bonds between people and their faithful pets. Keep your best friend fit as a fiddle!
