Weight Loss Guidance

Working as a team with your regular veterinarian, we can devise a safe weight loss program that can include a calorie-restriction plan, advice on appropriate treats and rewards for your pet, an exercise program either in-house or home-based, weigh-ins as needed, and lots of support and encouragement. Just as with humans, overweight pets are at risk to develop serious illnesses and die at a younger age than those pets that are at optimal weight. With added weight pets are also more likely to develop painful arthritis which leads to less mobility and a decrease in ability to do the things they love. A comprehensive weight-management program can significantly decrease pain in these pets and increase their quality of life as well as yours.
