Nutritional Counseling

Your pet’s health is our top priority.


Pet diets have become a hot topic.

We will help you decide what choice is best for you and your pet. We carry high-quality diets and prescription diets by Hill’s and Royal Canin.

Prescription Diets
We carry a full line of prescription diets for your convenience including Hill’s, Royal Canin, and Iams brands. We also have a variety of treats, including several weight control, dental care, and hypoallergenic options, for both dogs and cats. Please call ahead to ensure we have the diet you wish to purchase. We are happy to place a special order for you!
Obesity & Weight Loss
It is estimated that at least 40% of our dogs and cats are overweight. Those extra pounds may cause health problems when a pet exceeds 10-15% of his or her ideal body weight. An overweight pet is predisposed to joint problems such as arthritis, respiratory difficulties, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, liver disease, decreased heat tolerance, increased incidence of skin disease, increased anesthetic/surgical risks, increased risk of diabetes, and decreased resistance to infectious diseases, among other problems. At 15% more than his/her body weight, a pet is officially obese. No one likes the “O” word, but there are some things you can do to help your pet shed those extra pounds. Weight loss should be accomplished slowly, with a nutritionally-balanced diet. All members of the family need to work together to help achieve the weight loss goal for the pet. As appropriate for your pet, a moderate weight loss program can also aid weight loss.

We can help evaluate your pet to see if and how much weight loss is needed, help you select a reduced-calorie diet, and also to help calculate appropriate feeding amounts for your specific pet.

Because dogs and cats vary widely in actual energy requirements, your pet’s actual response to a standardized weight-loss program will also vary. Regular weigh-ins will help us make any adjustments.
