Is your pet overweight?
Obesity is very common in domestic pets and we are seeing the effects daily.
Obese pets have a greater risk of developing arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, bladder problems and many other illnesses. Being overweight can also reduce your pet's quality of life and shorten their life expectancy. Unfortunately at the practice we regularly see obese dogs, but increasingly we see obese cats, rabbits and reptiles. Two factors contribute to obesity in animals too many calories fed and too little exercise.
Our veterinary nurses will weigh and measure and weigh your dog or cat and produce a feeding and exercise plan specifically tailored for them. We will then invite you back for regular appointments to monitor their progress, once target weight has been achieved we can offer advice on how to remain at target weight.
