Weight Management

Weight management is key to ensuring your pet lives a happy and healthy life. Just like humans, obesity in pets can lead to many life-threatening diseases. At our hospital we offer a wide array of specialized treatments for weight management. Failing to maintain a healthy weight can lead to arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes mellitus. Pets who have a healthy weight can live up to 15% longer than pets who suffer from obesity.

Do you think your pet could be overweight? Contact our veterinary staff to schedule a comprehensive weight evaluation. Your vet will calculate your pet’s ideal body weight and design a custom program to fit you and your pets unique lifestyle. This program usually involves diet and exercise changes. If in fact your pet does need to shed a few pounds, you and your vet can discuss the necessary steps to take to bring your pet back into a healthy weight range. We will provide all of the tools and support necessary for reaching success, we will be by your side through every step of the journey.

Make sure to keep your veterinarian up to date on all of your pets feeding habits and exercise routines. You will work together to create a schedule to monitor the changes in your pets weight and ensure they are losing weight at a safe pace.
