Nutrition counseling for both dogs and cats!
Your veterinarian services in Peoria, IL
Our nutritional counseling services help your pet live longer!
In today’s fast-paced world, we often times overlook the importance of good nutrition. The same is true of the importance of nutrition for our pets. That is why Prairie Animal Hospital offers Nutritional Counseling Services for your pet.
From the time you bring a new pet home, all the way up to your pet’s final days, nutrition is important to your pet’s health and well-being. Even well-intended pet owners that pay attention to nutrition can easily take for granted they are buying the correct food for their pet, not realizing a pet’s nutritional needs change with age, and or activity levels.
The reason for choosing the correct diet for your pet is so important, is that it can assist your pet in avoiding or lessening the effects of various medical conditions. These conditions can include everything from diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, and arthritis.
The nutritional counseling services at Prairie Animal Hospital are your first and best defense against your pet experiencing nutritional deficiencies that could contribute to other medical conditions. Likewise, if your pet has an existing condition, our trained staff can recommend specially formulated diets to assist in managing that condition.
There are a variety of reasons to talk to a trained consultant. Pet owners can be overwhelmed by the huge selection of products on the market. There may also be concerns about calorie intake, and overfeeding or underfeeding your pet. Our nutritional consultants can evaluate your pet, any pre-existing conditions it may have, the age of the pet and its activity level, and then select the most appropriate diet for your pet.
Wellness Memberships FAQs
What is a Wellness Membership?
A wellness membership is an annual package of services that includes the optimal preventive health care services that your pet needs to stay happy and healthy. Our wellness memberships are based on the age and the specific needs of each individual pet. Your veterinarian will make a membership recommendation after conducting a comprehensive examination of your pet.
Does My Pet Need a Wellness Membership?
Absolutely. From the time your pet is a puppy or kitten to her most senior years, providing your pet with annual preventive healthcare is the very best gift you can give them. Keeping your pet on a wellness membership helps prevent diseases, and because our memberships include two annual preventive care exams and diagnostic testing, if your pet does get sick it will be detected early on, which results in faster, more effective treatment.
What Is the Next Step If I want to Purchase a Wellness Membership for My Pet?
Call us to schedule an appointment for your pet, and let the receptionist know that you are interested in a wellness membership. Based on the veterinarian’s examination, age, and any other relevant factors, we will recommend the membership that best meets the preventive care needs of your pet. If you decide to purchase the membership that day, any services that were performed which are included in the wellness membership will be covered under the membership. You will be responsible for paying the membership fee and first month’s payment at that time. After that, all monthly payments will be electronically debited from the account of your choice (of course, you always have the option to pay in full).
