Nutrition and Behavioral Consultations

Nutritional Consultation:

With the amazing array of professional diets now available on the market, how do you know what is truly good for your pet?  If it is expensive, does that mean it is good?  Together we can help you choose the best diet for your cat or dog whether you already have a brand in mind or you really haven’t a clue just what is in that bag.  Since your pet will need diet considerations based on age, activity, breed, and health concerns no one diet will ever be fed for an entire pet’s life.

Many of our support staff have gone through extensive training to help you navigate this often confusing landscape of shiny bags with dogs on mountain tops to cats sailing the seven seas.

Our friends at The Pet Stop located in the Sehome Village are purveyors of great advice too.

Behavioral Consultation:

When there is too much bark, bite or loss of furniture, life with your pet can become difficult. On occasion, some behaviors are medically related and in others they may be linked to training. The best place to start with addressing any “bad” behavior is with a medical consult.  Our staff will help identify the cause and develop a treatment plan or training strategies that would benefit your pet.  In some situations a referral to a certified behavioral specialist may be warranted.  We are here to help!
