Weight Management Program

Our hospital offers a specialized Weight Management Program for your pet. Just as in people, obesity contributes to many preventable life-threatening diseases such as diabetes mellitus, arthritis, heart disease and high blood pressure. Weight management is a very important part of maintaining the health of our pets. In fact, pets that maintained their ideal body weight throughout life are noted to live 15% longer than overweight or obese pets.

Please contact our staff or veterinarians for an in-depth evaluation of your overweight pet. First your pet's current weight and ideal body weight will be determined. Next, your veterinarian will create a program unique to your pet and your pet's lifestyle. Changes usually involve a plan for calorie restriction and exercise. It is important you tell your veterinarian about all foods and treats your pet eats as well as their daily opportunities for activity. Your pet's doctor will also recommend a weight recheck schedule to make sure your pet is losing weight at a safe rate and monitoring them for any problems.

If it looks like your pet might need to lose a few pounds, we'll discuss the steps you can take and provide the tools you need for successful pet weight loss. And we'll be there every step of the way offering support and encouragement to you and your pet.
