We Offer Nutritional and Behavioral Pet Training

Since we opened our doors to the pets of East Nashville and their owners in 2011, 5 Points Animal Hospital has been providing a wide variety of veterinary services with an emphasis on compassionate care, prevention, and education. We feel strongly that routine wellness and preventive care appointments are the best way to ensure that your pet lives a long, healthy, and happy life. Our staff is devoted to giving you and your pet personalized treatment to take care of specific needs your pet may experience over the years. We place a high importance on education, and we are proud to provide nutritional and behavioral pet training as part of our comprehensive wellness care services. We would like to tell you more about why your pet may need these services and how we can help your pet stay happy and healthy.

Nutritional Counseling

One of your most important responsibilities as a pet owner is to provide your pet with a well-balanced diet that will give him all of the nutritional requirements he needs to be healthy. With so many options to choose from, it can be challenging to pick the right food for your pet. As part of our comprehensive wellness and preventive exams, 5 Points Animal Hospital will give your pet a nutritional assessment with a recommendation of a specific type, brand, and amount of pet food. Our nutritional counseling services also include pet obesity preventive practices, natural pet food diet plans, and many other resources to help you provide the healthiest diet for your pet.

Behavioral Counseling

If you are hesitant to bring your dog out to the dog park because you are afraid he may act out aggressively towards other dogs or people, 5 Points Animal Hospital can help you with our pet behavior training services. When your pet has developed a bad habit such as aggressive or anxious behavior, the pet experts at WebMD recommend that you bring him into your veterinarian to make sure there is not an underlying medical issue that is causing the problem. Once our veterinary staff has checked out your pet, we can then talk about how certain behavioral therapy methods can help. We can work with your pet to eliminate unwanted behaviors and to correct the problems that occur as a result of those behaviors.

To make sure your pet lives a long, healthy, and happy life, it is important to bring him to his regular wellness checkups. Contact 5 Points Animal Hospital today to schedule an appointment for a comprehensive wellness and preventive health care examination.
