“We are what we eat” applies to our pets too

Our pets must rely on us to provide and maintain a healthy, nutritional diet for them.  Nutrition is one of the most important factors in maintaining your pet’s good health.  Proper nutrients are necessary for every organ system in the body to function properly.  Providing a healthy diet is a component of strengthening the human-animal bond between you and your pet.

Happy Tails Pet Hospital wants to work with you to provide the healthiest, nutritional choices for your pet

We will help you chose the best nutrition and food plan for your pet.  We evaluate your pet as an individual who deserves nutritional analysis tailored to his or her breed, age, lifestyle and health needs.

If your pet is overweight, please call us

A pet that is overweight or underweight may be experiencing an illness and may be more susceptible to disease and injury. Obesity is a complicating factor in heart conditions, arthritis, liver conditions and other ailments.  If you pet is overweight, there are many things you can do to help him get back into shape. Speaking with us is the first place to start. For some pets, feeding a diet formulated for weight loss and carefully selecting lower calories treats can help. Increasing exercise as appropriate for your pet may be helpful.  Most often, simply learning the correct volume of food to offer works wonders.

We have a brochure on weight management for your dog.  Feel free to download and read the brochure at your leisure.

Prescription pet foods and nutritional supplements

Our pharmacies carry a wide range of prescription foods and nutritional supplements that are formulated for the optimal balance of health and nutritional support for your pet.  Therapeutic dies are formulated to address specific health conditions and dental needs.  Talk to us about your pet’s nutritional needs.

Determining those best choices grows more difficult each day due to the overwhelming number of available pet food brands and conflicting online information.  Please call us today to schedule an appointment for your pet.

We love Dr. Jess and staff! As a breeder it is very important to have a good connection with the vet you work with on a regular basis. Dr. Jess always makes it a priority to have a great connection with you and your pet, she gets down on their level and interacts with them making the visit a very positive experience for both the owner and pet. She is very knowledgeable and I fully trust the advice she gives is what's best for my pets. Dr. Jess really has a passion for what she does and it shows every time we are in the office.

No other place better to take your dogs. We’ve taken all of our 24 dogs over the years there! Never had a problem. Vets are compassionate and the techs show nothing but love to your animals, as if they were taking care of their own.

I have nothing but great things to say about HT. We first started to bring our new dog out there after being referred to them by a friend. They have helped our dog through many issues (that were/are caused by overbreeding). And they even saved her life when she fell deathly ill and had to have emergency surgery.
