Healthy Pets Northwest – The natural alternative for Pet Food and Supplies

We would like to congratulate Laura Amiton, owner of the Alberta Street Healthy Pets Northwest store. As of April 1st, she has changed her Healthy Pets NW Alberta over to her own brand The Filling Station Pet Supplies. Laura opened the first installment of The Filling Station in Tigard three years ago. It’s bittersweet losing a member of the HPNW family, we are excited for Laura and grateful for the many years we have worked with Laura and her awesome employees. If you have a frequent buyer card at one of our stores or The Filling Station on Alberta Street, you will not lose any credit for product purchased. 

Going forward, we can no longer assigned credit for purchases made at The Filling Station and vice versa. If your card is at one of our Healthy Pets Northwest store and you would like it sent to The Filling Station, please let us know and we will gladly take care of that for you. If you received a gift certificate from Healthy Pets Northwest Alberta, we will honor it at any of our Healthy Pets Northwest stores. If the gift certificate came from Healthy Pets Northwest Alberta, Laura will also honor it at The Filling Station. Healthy Pets Northwest gift certificates purchased at other Healthy Pets Northwest locations should be redeemed at one of our Healthy Pets Northwest stores.

Healthy Pets in Union City, CA with Reviews

Even though you’re not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Speak to your friends and family about vets who’ve treated their pets. Look for a vet who’s close to your house, as many animals don’t like being in the car for a long time. Whether you have pet health insurance or not, it’s still worth checking what the regular costs for typical procedures are at the vet’s office. The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. 

Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Regulatory medicine: These vets work closely with diseases rather than animals themselves. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet’s behavior or habits. The vet will then take your pet’s vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. 

Keep note of your animal’s shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you’ll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for.

Oregon Veterinary Medical Association

Just as obesity is a problem in human health, obesity in our pets is a serious health issue. Extra pounds place an extra burden on virtually all of an overweight pet’s organ systems, as well as its joints and ligaments. Joint problems can lead to an inactive lifestyle, which only perpetuates the problem. Sometimes we give our pets treats just because we love them. We may even give them some of our food, or make sure that our dog or cat never has an empty food bowl. 

Simply cutting back on the amount of food you feed your pet may also decrease the amount of essential vitamins and minerals it receives. Your veterinarian can help you choose the right food for your pet. A small change in your pet’s weight can have big consequences. Treats should be given sparingly and should not make up more than 10% of your pet’s daily calories. Just as in humans, obesity is sometimes a symptom of an underlying medical problem and may not be successfully addressed until any medical issues are dealt with. 

If you think your pet is overweight, talk with your veterinarian, who can give you advice on a proper diet and exercise program. Your veterinarian will determine if there are any other medical problems contributing to your pet’s obesity and give you advice on how fast your pet should lose weight.
