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.

      Dr. Hunt and Dr. Dunaway have always been so awesome. Front desk girls are also very welcoming. When strays find you on the regular, a good vet is a must!

      Dr. Thompson was so kind and compassionate with our Vessie. He didn’t hesitate one second when we needed him to meet us at the office on a Sunday.

      We usually go to the New Albany office and see Dr Hunt or Dr Childers but our new puppy had gotten really sick during the Christmas holiday and Dr Thompson was the vet on call, if it wasn’t for him, his son Josh and caring staff, our sweet Henleigh wouldn’t be with us. Dr. Thompson never gave up on her and did everything he could to get her well. Everyone at both Willow Bend and New Albany Animal Clinic are wonderful and care for our fur babies as if they were their own.

      Dr. Thompson and Dr. Hunt are both incredible!! The entire staff is so wonderful. I wouldn't trust anybody else with my fur baby's life. My little puppy almost died of an immune disorder, and they saved his life. We are so grateful!! We love Willow Bend ��
