Northwest Pet Clinic Supports Education

Northwest Pet Clinic was proud to be the Hamster Ball Races sponsor for Harelson Elementary’s annual Fun Fest.

The Fun Fest was designed to bring the community together in a fun and healthy way while raising funds to support the educational needs of the students and teachers at Harelson Elementary.

Our sponsorship helped to allow Harelson the opportunity to provide a quality education to all of its students.

Previous sponsorship funds went towards the purchase smart boards for the classrooms, hiring a reading room coordinator, and hiring a school counselor. In addition, monies were used to fund classroom supplies for every class room; including art, music, and physical education.

Northwest Pet Clinic is proud to be able to give back to the community. We thank our clients for their support in helping us make a difference in the future of our children.

Could You Be Overfeeding Your Pet?

Royal Canin training at Northwest Pet Clinic At Northwest Pet Clinic, we continuously invest in the professional development, training, and education of our team. Whether it’s through continuous education courses, breakfast seminars, private one-on-one training, or other outside sources, our team is continually enveloped in training. This not only makes them a greater asset to us but to you as well. When you bring your pet to Northwest Pet Clinic, you can be confident that our knowledgeable team is well prepared to handle your questions and concerns, or that they can help point you to the correct resources.

We are very fortunate to have Rocco Pelino, from Royal Canin, come educate our staff about the importance of pet nutrition. Did you know that you may be overfeeding your pet and not even know it? For example, if you give your dog 2 slices of ham, that’s the equivalent of you eating a chocolate glazed donut with sprinkles. If you gave your dog 3 oz of bacon strip treats, that’s the equivalent of you eating FOUR chocolate glazed donuts with sprinkles! So if you’re already feeding your dog 100% of the amount of food that he or she is supposed to be getting on a daily basis AND you’re adding treats on top of that, you may be overfeeding your dog and not even realize it.

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, an estimated 54% of dogs and cats in the United States are overweight or obese. We know that you are a responsible pet owner and implore you to continuously develop and grow in your knowledge and understanding of the care that your pet requires. We encourage you to have a conversation with one of our vets about the importance of a healthy and well-balanced diet and how to achieve it. Let’s learn and grow together, aiming towards a common goal: providing a lifetime of compassionate, high quality care for your pets.
