Did you know that SICSA has a Paw Partners program, that allows you to take an adoptable dog for a run or walk? This is a great way to provide enrichment and exercise for a shelter pup, support the efforts of a local animal welfare group, and improve your own health and fitness. It’s a win-win-win!

The next orientation for the Paw Partners program is Saturday, May 24th at 11am, in the SICSA training room at 2600 Wilmington Pike, Kettering (45419).

See you there!

About Bigger Road and the Healthy Pet Project

Since 1976, Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic has provided care for pets and their parents in

Healthy Pet Project

The Healthy Pet Project is exclusively for Bigger Road Clients

Kettering, OH. In 2009, we opened a second location in Springboro, allowing us to help even more pets in the Dayton area.

Bigger Road’s mission is the help pets live the longest, healthiest, happiest lives possible. We know that this is best achieved through whole life care – not just quality medical care, but also attending to a pet’s nutrition, behavior, and lifestyle needs.

The Healthy Pet Project was designed to provide this whole life care and strengthen the bond between people and their pets. Certified coaches work with clients and their pets to develop a solid nutrition plan and a schedule of activities to improve or maintain overall fitness. Fun group activities bring clients and pets together to share their successes and stay motivated.

Along with regular preventive care, the guidance provided by our coaches helps ensure that your pet stays healthy and happy. We are happy to answer questions about the Healthy Pet Project by e-mail (nutrition@biggervet.com) or on our web site (http://www.biggervet.com/), or call us anytime at (937) 435-3262.
