Canine Nutritional Counseling

Your dog’s diet is an important part of the foundation of your dog’s good health and longevity.  We will work with you to create a nutritional plan appropriate for your dog’s age, weight, health, lifestyle, and activity level.  By assessing your dog’s history and current health conditions, we can assist you in keeping your dog healthy and active. With all the dog food brands on the market, talk to one of our veterinarians about your pet’s nutritional needs.  

Does your dog experience any of these problems? 

  • Sensitive Stomach
  • Skin allergies
  • Overweight
  • Nausea  
  • Persistent diarrhea

These symptoms could be a result of nutritional deficiencies or a poor diet.  There are many different diets on the market for dogs, and we can help you decide on the best diet for your dog.  During your dog’s wellness exams, we will discuss your dog’s weight and nutritional needs with you and guide you on the best food and treats that would be ideal for your dog. 

If your dog needs a specialized or prescription diet, The Animal Medical Center at Fort Sheridan carries a wide range of foods and nutritional supplements for your dog:

  • Prescription Diets: Prescription diets are formulated and prepared to meet specific nutritional needs required for certain illnesses.  We offer a variety of formulations and brands to assist in managing diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease, obesity, arthritis, allergies, pancreatitis, cancers and many more. We routinely stock prescription diets by Royal Canin. 
  • Vitamin Supplements and Nutraceutical Supplements: Vitamins and nutraceutical supplements are non-medicinal and are used to help support your pet’s overall health and well-being. Examples include omega 3 fatty acids, glucosamine/chondroitin, iron supplements, and multistage vitamins.

Nutritional diets and supplements can change throughout the stages of your dog’s life.  Please talk with us to find out which nutritional food and/or supplement is recommended for your dog’s healthy lifestyle.

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
