An Emphasis On Dog Nutrition

At Northeast Animal Hospital and Downtown St. Pete Vet Clinic, you will find that our veterinarians and staff place an emphasis on the importance of proper nutrition for all phases of your dog’s life. Whether your dog is a puppy, adolescent, adult, or senior, each stage of your dog’s life comes with some special nutritional considerations.

Our veterinarians are here to help you understand your dog’s nutritional needs, including:

  • The best canned or kibble diet for the breed, age, and activity level.
  • Items that are okay to add to your dog’s food, i.e. some cooked veggies.
  • Healthy dog snacks
  • What to avoid feeding your dog

We can also help create a custom dog nutrition program that takes into consideration aspects like breed, age, size, physical fitness, allergies, and medical conditions. As with humans, proper dog nutrition can be both preventive and sometimes curative, as a balanced diet is essential for both supporting and maintaining optimal health.

Of course, your dog cannot choose his or her own diet. Therefore, the burden of making good health choices is on you. Understanding the nutritional needs of your dog is an important part of your responsibility to ensure they lead a healthy and happy life for many years to come.

Dog Surgery Options When Necessary

An important aspect of operating a dog hospital is being fully equipped and prepared to perform dog surgery for all kinds of situations. We realize that no one wants to think about their dog needing surgery.

However, if such an unfortunate situation arises, rest assured that Northeast Animal Hospital is well prepared to guide you and your dog through:

• Pre-surgery protocols

• Surgical procedures

• Post op pain management and nursing care

• Aftercare and rehabilitation
