Obesity is a common problem in both cats and dogs and can contribute to several health problems such as arthritis, diabetes, heart and respiratory conditions. We all know how important it is not to allow our pets to gain weight but sometimes the waistline of your pet can increase over time and it’s these slow changes that are less easy to spot. Most overweight patients simply need a more suitable diet in order to lead a slimmer, healthier life. At the Practice we offer a weight clinic, to provide advice on suitable diets, target weights, and a timescale for losing weight. Regular weigh-ins will encourage and support your and your pet’s efforts to slim and trim. The clinics are free of charge, so why not book in for a weight check. There’s nothing to lose but your pet’s "spare tyre"!
