A Comprehensive Approach To Canine Veterinary Medicine

We understand that a dog veterinarian is only as good as his or her ability to successfully prevent, diagnose and treat whatever ailment a dog may be facing. Equally as important is our ability to listen and communicate well with owners to make sure they understand their dog's health concerns and how to make the best choices for their dog. This is why our veterinary hospital is capable of handling any procedure including preventive care, medical diagnosis and emergency surgery.

An Emphasis On Dog Nutrition

At Animal Hospital of Springfield you will find that our veterinarian 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 a dog's life comes with some special nutritional considerations.

Our veterinarian is here to help you understand your dog's nutritional needs, including:

  • The best diet for the breed, age and activity level
  • Items ok to add to your dog's food - ie some cooked veggies
  • Healthy dog snacks
  • What to avoid feeding your dog

We can also help create a custom dog nutrition program taking into consideration things 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, and 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.
