Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to overfeed a pet that knows how to beg. But being overweight is a serious problem for animals, and can cause real health problems as they get older. With proper diet and exercise, all pets should be able to meet their dietary needs and be within a healthy weight range.
A pet’s nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for them and their lifestyle. Please contact us if you have any questions, we would love to speak with you.
At your pets wellness visit, we can help formulate a weight management plan for your pet depending on their body condition score. It is important for pets to be at a healthy weight to help minimize arthritis pain, cruciate ligament tears and diabetes.
