Thank you from the Doctors and Staff at Companion
At Companion Animal Hospital we strive to provide the best
care for your pet in the most cost effective way possible to our clients. With
the skyrocketing cost of pet food ingredients, the pet food manufacturers have
been forced to pass this increase on to the veterinarians, pet stores and
consumers in order to maintain the high quality of foods they make for our pets.
Because of these rising costs and in order to keep our boarding fees reasonable,
we will be feeding only the Purina Pro Plan Adult or the Purina EN
diets to all of the pets in our boarding facility. Beginning on January
all pets with special dietary needs or those on a prescription diet will need to
have that food provided for them by the owner. We apologize for any
inconvenience, but believe this is the best way we can continue to provide
boarding services for your pet without significant increases in our fees.
