Nutritional counseling and weight management
Pet obesity is an epidemic—affecting over half the dogs and cats in the United States. And this extra weight is more than an aesthetic concern. Overweight and obese pets are at an increased risk for life-altering conditions including arthritis, cancer, orthopedic disease, kidney disease, respiratory problems, and more.
If your pet is overweight, our nutritional counseling can help. After ruling out a medical cause, we’ll closely review your pet’s current eating habits, feeding schedule, and lifestyle. We’ll record your pet’s body weight and assess their body condition score (BCS) to determine their ideal weight. Then, your pet’s veterinarian will design a safe weight loss plan to restore your pet’s health and vitality—and we’ll support you along the way with regular check-ins to ensure success.
