"In 2001 a very special little kitten came to stay at our house named Emma. She weighed in at a whopping 2 ½ pounds. When she was about 9 months old she began vomiting and wouldn’t eat. The doctors at Piney Creek Square Veterinary Clinic took x-rays, but nothing showed up on them. She was losing weight, and she was thin by nature anyway, so everyone was worried about her. Dr. Behrns came to the rescue and performed emergency surgery on our little girl. She found an almond trying to pass into Emma’s stomach. Of course, it would not have shown up on an x-ray. Thank you, Dr. Behrns, for saving Emma’s life."
Diet and nutrition are the foundation of your pet’s good health. We consult on a number of diet options for our patients, realizing that there is no one perfect diet for every pet.
Each pet is unique in its needs depending on its age, constitution and health conditions. We will discuss possible nutritional supplements including nutraceuticals and herbs. Various dietary options can be explored including high quality commercial diets, as well as the pros and cons of the raw diet and home cooking.
With a little education about the benefits of optimal pet nutrition you can greatly enhance your pet’s health and longevity.
