Weight Management Solutions for Pet Obesity
Even if you’ve chosen the best diet for your pet, without proper exercise, they can still gain weight. Obesity takes a huge toll on your pet’s quality of life, as well as their overall health. It affects their bones and joints and their internal organs, too. Obese dogs and cats often have a shorter lifespan due to the complications obesity can cause. At every wellness exam at North Kenny Veterinary Hospital, we perform a weight check and a body condition score to ensure your pet is at a healthy weight.
If we find your pet is overweight, we’ll work with you to develop a weight loss program, which may include:
- An exercise regimen
- Portioned meals
- Fewer treats
- A change in diet
- Use of puzzle feeders, etc.
