There are several health risks associated with overweight pets including diabetes, heart disease and joint problems. Often weight loss can be achieved with simple steps such as reducing treats and adding in extra walks. Some animals find it more difficult to lose the weight and we may advise starting a prescriptions weight loss diet to aid the weight loss.
Have a look at your pet, is their tummy sagging? Can you see an obvious waist line? Can you fell any ribs? Please come and have a chat with one of our vets or nurses to discuss a weight loss plan. We like to get to know our patients and owners well to come up with the best plan for you. We advise regular free weight checks and chats to monitor progress and give support. As your pet begins to lose weight the benefits can be seen quite quickly with an increase in vitality and energy.
In some cases excess weight may be due to a medical problem such as low thyroid levels. This can be screened for with a simple blood test.
