Nutritional Consultations

It is estimated that 70% of chronic disease is nutrition related. Our background in biochemistry gives us a unique perspective on  nutrition- the cornerstone of preventative medicine. We will help you select the best diet for your pet- whether it is grain free, home made or  "raw", for muscle maintenance,  weight gain or weight loss. Please be sure to bring the food you are currently feeding, as well as ALL the treats. 



Figuring out if your pet is suffering, or living a good quality of life is often not easy nor black and white. Our pets live much shorter lives than we do, and we often face one of the most difficult decisions of our lives when chosing to end theirs- to prevent the pet's pain and suffering. Some pet owners know when it is time to put their pet to sleep;  others find the decision much more wrenching and stressful. Though nothing can make the pain and grief disappear, having said good bye to our own beloved companions and patients, allows us to  relate to your feelings and helps us guide you through the process.
