Does my pet need a different food after their spay or neuter surgery?

In general, we recommend that puppy or kitten food be fed until your pet is finished growing—at which point they can transition to adult food.

However, in some cases, we may recommend changing to adult food soon after your pet has recovered from their spay or neuter surgery. That’s because metabolism may be affected by hormonal changes, possibly leading to weight gain.

Since obesity is a growing health concern that leads to diabetes, arthritis, heart and lung conditions, and other health problems in pets, maintaining a healthy weight is crucial—and your pet’s food is an important factor in terms of weight maintenance.

Every pup or kitty is an individual with unique needs, so please check with the Fromm Family Foods customer service team for a recommendation of whether to feed puppy/kitten or adult food after their spay or neuter surgery.
