Nutritional Information

Good nutrition is very important and nutritional supplements can help provide your pet with a happier, safer, and longer life. Supplements are not just intended to fight against disease, but also promote the overall well-being of your pet.

We can recommend numerous nutritional supplements to help treat and/or prevent arthritis, joint problems, skin and coat ailments, as well as intestinal disorders. Many senior pets – like humans – need arthritis and joint supplements. It is important to keep our pets on a joint supplement year-round, not just in the colder months.

Skin and coat supplements are a great way to keep your pet's skin and coat looking their best. Spend time brushing and massaging your pet. This will enable you to detect changes in their coat, hot spots, unusual growths, or subcutaneous tumors. Early detection can help prevent costly treatment at a later date. Look for changes in behavior or motion.

Our staff will help your pet battle unhealthy weight gain. We will counsel you on nutritional options that are available.
