As one of the leading Brooklyn veterinary hospitals, Clinton Hill Animal Clinic is a thriving business catering to the demands of loving pet owners in our home borough and surrounding areas. Our staff is committed to providing the highest quality of pet care in a relaxing, friendly environment, ensuring peace of mind for you and peak health for your pet – one of the most important aspects of which is pet nutrition.
If you’re concerned about proper pet wellness, it’s important to speak to a veterinarian in Brooklyn. We can help you determine the healthiest diet for your pet, taking into account such aspects of pet wellness as the stage of life, activity level, weight, health conditions, food brand and more. Only when your veterinarian in Brooklyn is regularly monitoring your pet can you ensure top-notch nutrition.
Pet diet varies by how old your animal is. For puppies and kittens, the diet is rich in fats and nutrients to help them grow quickly, put on mass and develop healthy tissues. For adult animals, maintenance is most important, so balanced nutrition is the name of the game. Even healthy, normal-weight pets, however, sometimes aren’t getting the right nutrition or exercise, so you should discuss this with a vet.
Older dogs and cats often have health problems and a greater chance of weight problems, so a healthy pet diet for them usually looks different: perhaps a specialized diet or supplements. In some cases, an animal’s diet may need to be modified for kidney trouble, joint problems or an injury.
Sometimes you have an overweight pet that needs special attention to get them back down to a healthy level. In this case, your vet can help you determine not only the best diet but the proper calorie count (number of scoops, etc.). Overweight adult dogs and cats may need adjustment in their activity levels as well, something we can discuss when you come in to see us.
Sometimes, animals are allergic to mainstream foods. This can cause skin conditions, tummy trouble, and other reactions, so if you’ve noticed unexplained malaise or health concerns, diet could be the problem. Some congenital conditions can also cause similar results, so talk to us today about the best nutrition for an overweight or otherwise sensitive pet.
Here at your Brooklyn veterinarian, we put your pet’s needs first, whether that means talking you through dietary changes or making house calls (on an appointment-only basis) to fit your busy schedule. Call us at 718-623-3999 or request an appointment through our website today!

To Dr Dendtler and Staff, I cant begin to tell you how impressed I am with the loving care you have given to my cat Baxter, before and after the much needed surgery. Baxter is so pleased with the outcome; he goes around purring all day.
Dear Pamella, We want to thank all of you so much, not only for the loving care and consideration you showed us last Thursday when we had to say goodbye to Gericho but also for all the years of check-ups and other crisis' that we went through with him. We know it was your good efforts that allowed him to live a full and vigorous 16 years that gave us so much pleasure. Please know that we have always found your staff to be so courteous and helpful all these years.
Dear Dr. Dendtler, You were very thorough and caring in treating Buddy. You explained clearly how to protect my dog. I have been to many clinics but you are the best. You were very professional and compassionate. Buddy and I are very grateful. Thanks ever so much to you and your staff.
Hi Dr Dendtler, Thank you so very much for fixing my eye. I can see clearly now…I can see all obstacles in my way! Love Vernell R
