Does being overweight affect my pet’s health?
When all you see is how adorable your furry friend is, it can be difficult to tell if your pet is overweight. But that extra bit of weight can shorten your pet’s lifespan and put them at risk of developing serious health issues. Some common diseases we work to prevent include:
- High blood pressure
- Heart and respiratory disease
- Joint injuries
What can I do to help my pet lose weight?
The burden doesn’t have to fall on your shoulders alone. Our veterinarians will work with you to create a weight management plan specific to your pet’s medical and lifestyle needs. Weight management is more than finding the proper diet for your pet. Our team considers their age, breed, lifestyle habits and health status, so we can recommend nutritional foods and techniques to help them maintain a healthier weight. A great way to start is by sticking to a feeding schedule or swapping out treats for healthier alternatives.
