Bentley, a majestic Airdale Terrier, came into our lives soon after we lost Boomer and quickly became our constant companion and filled the void we felt with our loss. I made the mistake of showering him with a constant assortment of treats as well as overfeed him and he continued to gain weight until he reached 101lbs in November 2017.

Dr. Thompson placed Bentley on a Healthy Weight Program which required changing the food he was consuming, reduce the daily servings, and placed him on reduced and lower carb treats (he loves apples). Although it was a life changing experience for Bentley and I (more difficult for me), Bentley quickly adapted to the program and now he is down to a healthier 78lbs. His level of energy is great and now he can keep up with his younger sister Marlee. It is nice to see him enjoy life every day. We definitely recommend the program to any pet owner.


About six months ago I found my little chihuahua had really gained a lot of weight. Dr. Thompson suggested their healthy weight program. So, we were off to the race. The team and staff are wonderful and the results even better! He has lost 35% of his body weight . Down from 9.6 to 6.2! Looks and feels great. I would highly recommend the program.

“We adopted our golden retriever, Jackson, from a local rescue organization in 2011. He quickly became a member of our family, and to show our love, we showered him with toys, treats, left-overs, and more! The result- In just 3 years, his weight ballooned to over 100lbs. As the weight came on, our once energetic and happy puppy became more lethargic and started having mobility troubles. In just 6 months on the weight loss program, Dr. Thompson and the staff at North Alabama Animal Hospital were able to help us lower Jackson’s weight by almost 25%. He is now a svelte and happy 76lbs., and his energy levels are higher than ever. It is our hope that maintaining Jackson’s healthy weight will add years to his life, but one thing is certain, it has already added life to his years! We cannot thank Dr. Thompson (and his staff) enough for all of his help and would recommend the program to anyone.”

“When we started this weight program Sadie embarrassingly weighed over 90 pounds. We started this because she had bad knees as it was and could tell she wasn’t happy at all. The pounds fell off with ease and now she weighs a healthy 68 pounds and is more active than ever! Her knees are better and she is now a healthy happy pup. Me and my mother both would recommend this to anyone!”

“Almost 10 years ago, a precocious black lab pup named Oscar became a member of our family. Five moves, 4 states, 10 years, and more treats than he should have had later, he was a 9-year old ‘pup,’ who weighed in at a far too heavy 120 lbs. After our move to Florence, our big boy became the patient of the North Alabama Animal Hospital, and at one of our early visits, we signed Oscar up for the weight loss program under the supervision of Dr. Thompson. We began counting his calories, and using the food recommended for him. Since then, our 120 pound monster has lost more weight than his pet-siblings weigh combined, and is now a more active, and healthier looking 79-pound almost 10-year old lab. We couldn’t be happier with the results, and with the excellent care and encouragement Oscar (and his family) got during the weight loss program.”
