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.

      We had an emergency with our 10 week old German Shepherd puppy, Diesel. I called. They waited for us to arrive. Dr. Dunaway was fantastic! He informed us every step. Explained what we needed to do for our boy. He did not just go for the most expensive treatment 1st. I will definitely recommend them and use them again. Thank you for saving our Diesel.

      Been bringIng my 4 legged babies here for years and have loved everyone we’ve ever seen. Today we saw Dr. Dunaway for the first time. Him and his sweet assistant ( didn’t get her name 😞 ) was so patient with Ryder. See Ryder gets way too excited and nervous, even after taking a few chill pills. They got on the floor with him and did everything they had to right there and todays visit was by far the least stressful we have ever had. He is home now and finally feeling the effects of his chill pills. 😝

      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.
