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, we’re here to help! Pendleton Veterinary Clinic offers complete animal nutrition and weight management services to keep your loved one fit and healthy.

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. Furthermore, some species have their own special dietary needs. 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 a pet, it can lead to serious health problems. Obesity can even shorten a companion animal’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 pet and then developing a strategy for achieving that goal. Through things like proper diet, exercise and calorie control, we’ll get that little guy or gal fit in no time!

Ongoing Maintenance

As your pet ages, his or her 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 our dedicated team 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.

      Watching our daughters dog while she is on vacation. Her dog got sick, and since he has a history of pancreatitis we felt he needed seen ASAP. Her regular vet was closed so we got in to see Dr Crabtree. We had not been there before. Dr Crabtree was so thorough and compassionate. He had to deliver bad news to us, and to our daughter on the phone. He offered help in making the dog comfortable until our daughter can get home. You can tell he truly cares for his patients and will go the extra mile to help. He is exceptional.
