Nutrition & Weight Management

 

Are your pet’s nutritional needs really being met?

If you’ve ever read the back of your pet’s food package, you know how many ingredients there are. Many of these things are hard to pronounce, let alone understand. Let’s face it: the topics of nutrition and weight control can be confusing, even for the most seasoned pet parent. If you need a little guidance in this area, you’re not alone. More importantly, Willow Bend Animal Clinic is here to help!

 

A Balanced Diet

What your pet consumes can mean the difference between simply surviving and truly thriving. Yet with literally hundreds of different foods to choose from, figuring out which one is the right fit can be challenging. What’s more, different animals often have their own special dietary requirements. Our team is knowledgeable and experienced in identifying the unique nutritional needs of each patient. We can assess your pet and determine just what food would be perfect for him or her. We’ll even advise you on how much and how often you should be feeding your pet for optimum results.

 

The Right Weight

A few extra pounds for a human may be no big deal but, for an animal, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a pet’s life. That’s why making sure that your loved one maintains a healthy weight is so important. We can help by determining which range would be ideal for your particular companion and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that guy or gal fit in no time!

 

Ongoing Maintenance

As animals age, their nutritional and weight control needs will inevitably change. In order for us to continue achieving the desired results, we must make sure that our approach also evolves. At certain life stages, such as the transition from youth into adulthood, we’ll evaluate our plan and make any necessary adjustments. This will improve the chances of your companion staying in tip-top shape throughout his or her entire life.

Give the Willow Bend crew a call today to get started. We can design a customized diet and exercise plan that will bring out the very best in your animal friend.

      As most of my family knows I had to make a sad decision on December 23, 2017 to have my sweet baby girl Meia put to sleep because we found out after she got sick all of a sudden that she had Cancer. I took her to Willow Bend Animal Clinic because that is where she had gone for the past 11 years and I wanted to say that the staff that work there is such caring kind hearted people, each and every person we came into contact with there just loved on my baby girl and put there personal lives on hold to allow me time to make such a difficult decision. They gathered in the room with Chris and I and were loving and talking to Meia during the process of putting her to sleep right along with Chris and I and it meant the world to me because from the time Chris bought Meia for me she was strictly my baby girl. Today when I came home from work I received the sweetest condolence card in the mail and it melted my heart. I want Dr. Childers to know what such caring employees he has at his office. Thank you for caring for my Meia and for treating her like she was a princess. I will never forget your kindness.

      Very compassionate and caring. Pet care is treated with the same respect as patient care. Even when the unfortunate happens, I have been 100% satisfied with the love and compassion expressed.

      Wonderful people, they are truly caring and do an excellent job with all my critters!! They go that extra mile for me and my four legged critters, horses, dogs, goats and the cattle!! And......and this is a HUGE bonus, whenever I have been in a true emergency situation, after hours, a phone call is all it takes unlike some clinics/vets out there. Willow Bend Vets answer their phones day or night!! Keep up the great work!!
