Ensuring Healthy Nutrition for Your Pet

One of the most important aspects of healthy pet care is maintaining proper nutrition, so the veterinarians and staff at Godspeed Animal Care provide pet nutrition counseling as part of your pet’s wellness exam. During your dog, cat, or exotic pet’s annual or semi-annual checkup, we discuss your animal’s lifestyle and recommend the best food to meet his or her needs.

When it comes to ensuring a balanced diet for your dog or cat, our staff recommends nutritionally balanced pet food, specifically Hill’s Science Diet; Hill’s Ideal Balance, which is an all natural pet food; Hill’s Healthy Advantage; and Hill’s Prescription Diet foods. Knowing that animals can be finicky, we offer this taste test guarantee to our clients: if after purchasing that first bag of Hill’s food you find that your pet refuses to eat it, you are welcome to return the bag for a full refund.

We also carry a full line of Science Diet prescription foods that cater to the unique needs of your dog or cat. At times, your animal may also need to take vitamin supplements. We carry Standard Process Whole Food Supplements and other over-the-counter vitamins.

Maintaining your dog or cat’s weight improves your pet’s quality of life and can increase his or her lifespan. For weight management, the veterinarians at Godspeed Animal Care consult with you as to the proper diet, including Hill’s Metabolic Food, and set up a specific exercise regimen. At St. Francis Pet Resort & Rehabilitation Center, we offer an underwater treadmill making the exercise easier on your dog’s joints.

Godspeed Animal Care wants your animal to live a long and healthy life. Call or stop by to learn more about everything we have to offer you and your pet.

The best there is. Makes me wish I was a dog so I could get treated there!

Best Vet and Pet Resort in Hampton Roads. I live 45 minutes away and only take my dog here. They are always so friendly and definitely take care of your pet! I always feel like Butter is getting taken care of when I am gone. I highly recommend both Godspeed Animal Care and St. Francis Pet Resort!

I found out that my dog had a hot spot, and was able to be seen that day. They are very caring people, from the receptionist to the doctor!

Wonderful place! Crockett was there for doggy playcare. He was happy when I saw him at the end of the day. He came home ate dinner and went to bed! It was a good tiring day !! Thank you!

I always get excellent service from the employees at Godspeed Animal Care. Everyone is helpful and kind, and they treat all animals well. They will get answers to questions I have about my cat and his special diet. Thank you for being my cat's veterinary office.

Everyone was so very friendly and treated Ruffles and Wrinkles like little queens. They mean the world to us, and to see the service and treatment they received only confirmed that Godspeed Animal Care will be their permanent veterinarian service. Thanks to all!
