New Year's Resolution #3: Fit Feasting

Feeding your pet a healthy diet is one of the best ways to support lifelong health and well-being. If you've ever scratched your head over a nutritional label, though, you know how hard putting together a nutritionally balanced diet can be.

Your pet needs the right mix of vitamins, fats, carbs and minerals - and that mix depends on breed, age, and activity level. If you've opted to feed your pet homemade food, getting that mix right can be even harder. The days of one-size-fits-all pet foods are behind us.

As part of your pet's well visit, we'll analyze nutritional needs and make recommendations that address your pet's individual requirements.

Make sure your pet is getting the necessary nutrients to live a long and healthy life. Contact our office today to schedule a well visit appointment!

Remember: you can get 15% off a New Year's Wellness Exam if you scheduled by January 31, 2014!

New Year's Resolution #2: A Pill-Popping Pet

Remembering your pet's medication can be a chore. Sometimes that chore is daily, sometimes monthly. For some regimens - such as insulin treatment for diabetes - the effects of missed doses are easily and readily apparent. For other regimens - like heartworm prevention treatments (yes, cats and dogs both need it!) - the effects of a missed dose are not so obvious. Just because we can't easily see those effects, however, doesn't mean they aren't there.

Start your pet's year on the right paw. Resolve this year to consistently remember your pet's pills.

Then, contact us about setting up a well visit for your cat or dog to review any current or necessary medications. There are many new products on the market that might even make your life a little easier!

New Year's Resolution #1: Well Visits for Well Pets

Our pets depend on us to protect their well-being. They can't tell us when their tummies hurt, they can't tell us when their joints start bothering them, and they can't tell us when their blood sugar is out of whack.

Paying attention to the behavior of our furry family members can help our pets stay healthy.

Attentiveness isn't the only tool we have to preserve and protect the health of our pets: regular wellness exams are another. These exams allow us to discover potential health issues before your pet beings showing symptoms - and before any issue becomes life threatening.

This year, resolve to keep your pet healthy and happy. Contact our office TODAY to schedule a routine wellness visit. Schedule before January 31, 2014, and get 15% off a New Year's Wellness Exam!
