Our staff is dedicated to working with you and your pet family to ensure they lead a happy and healthy life. One of the most common health problems we see stems from improper nutrition. Not all pet food is created equal, which is why we offer nutritional counseling as part of our wellness exam. Developing and maintaining a balanced diet is paramount to good health. Your veterinarian will work with you to tailor the best nutritional plan for your furry friend. This might range from a special post-surgery diet to a diet that helps combat or prevent disease, but rest assured that we have the right plan for your animal. With our weight management programs we can get your pet to its target weight, but we can also give you a lot of advice and tips on proper feeding, healthy snacks, and exercise.
Did you know that maintaining a pet at his or her ideal body weight can improve life expectancy by up to 20%? That means a 10 year old dog could live an extra 2 years at the right weight! When we examine your pet, we will evaluate their nutritional status and make specific recommendations regarding proper nutrition for your pet. We have a variety of prescription diets for each life stage and medical condition that we may be faced with. When we start your pet on a nutrition program, we counsel you on a continuing basis. We encourage monthly counseling sessions with our trained nutritional counselors.
