Nutrition & Behavior

PET NUTRITION

Your pet’s health begins with proper nutrition – feeding your pet the right food at the right time to insure optimum growth and development. There are lots of different pet foods on the market and choosing the right one for your pet can be a challenge, so we are here to guide you through the "pet food supermarket" to find what’s best for your pet. When your pet goes through the various stages of its life, the nutritional requirements change and it’s important to adjust the diet accordingly.

In addition to nutritional counseling for healthy pets our doctors can make recommendations for feeding pets with illnesses. Whether your pet suffers from allergies, diabetes, kidney or liver disease, obesity, etc. – making a nutritional plan part of the medical program is often the best way to successfully treat these disorders. At BVH we use Science Diet, Purina, and Royal Canin brand prescription diets in order to provide a wide range of nutritional therapies.

BEHAVIORAL COUNSELING

"Sit", "Stay", "Down", "Good Dog" – does your dog speak "Human"? Having a well behaved pet is a delight, but it requires effort on the part of the owner. Both cats and dogs respond well to patient and consistent training, resulting in a strong bond between you and your pet. Our doctors and staff have many years of experience in pet behavior and etiquette, so let us help you raise a "Good Pet".
