FAQ

There are a lot of pet food choices these days. What should I be feeding my pet?

There’s certainly a lot of hype surrounding different types of pet food, but not all the new foods are what they are cracked up to be. Depending on your pet, cats, dogs, and others have specific needs based on their bodies. Talk to a veterinarian to know which food your pet needs in order to live a healthy life.

Can I feed my pet human food?

Veterinarians warn against a diet based in human food, often leaning more towards prepared pet foods (kibble) for reasons of safety, and of course cost. A good rule of thumb would be to consider human food as “treats” and not a staple food source for your pet. Treats being 15% or less than their daily consumption of food.
As your pet’s owner, you may find that your dog likes to eat certain items that don’t disrupt their digestive cycle, like peas or a slice of roast beef from your sandwich. Cats often like to eat raspberries, blueberries, canteloupe and zuchinni. All good for snack time.
Your cat or dog are still officially considered carnivores (meat eaters) so grains like oats, soy, millet, rice and wheat are inflammatory foods for your pet. Also some foods ARE TOXIC to feed to dogs and cats such as grapes, raisins, macadamia nuts and onions. Want to learn if chocolate is poisonous, or what houseplants to avoid?

This is the BEST VET I have ever taken a pet to!
I took my 12 week old puppy for a "vet check up" and they treated him like he was their own! Dr. Susan was very helpful and answered all of my questions and made sure I understood, she gave me suggestions on how to crate and potty train my new little friend too. I was very happy would refer this practice to anyone that asked. I am taking my puppy back in two weeks for sure!

My dog stayed for just over a week and I couldn’t be happier with the service I and my pup got. Immediately upon entering we were greeted and they knew exactly who we were, even though we had never been there. The check in process was smooth, and I felt very comfortable leaving my pup. When picking up I received a report card telling me how my pup did, she made herself right at home! The check out process was seamless and quick. Before evening checking me out they called back for my pup to be brought up so it was fast and easy. Would highly recommend, and we will surly be back!

They were wonderful. The place is very clean. They are reasonably priced. They should let future customers know ahead of time more about the feeding situation. For example, the customer should know to bring in his or her own wet food, if that is the daily intake. Dry pet food is supplied. I would recommend.Tip to Tail. Correction, Tipp to Tail.

I was amazed by everything that everyone did. When I wanted to check up on my 2 Boys when they were there, the were very prompt about letting me know how they were doing. Now, I did have 10 year old Basset with hip and back problems, and 3 yrs old Siberian Husky who can be a handful too. They sent pictures of my boys letting me see they were doing well. They let me know when my Husky wouldn't eat and if they could try other options for feeding due to his anxiety. They are very helpful!! I would refer anyone here, as I was thoroughly happy with the service I received. 😊
