Did you know?
In the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention’s 2017 clinical survey, 56% of dogs and 60% of cats were classified as clinically overweight (body condition score (BCS) 6-7) or obese (BCS 8-9) by their veterinary healthcare professional. That equals an estimated 50.2 million dogs and 56.5 million cats are too heavy, based on 2017 pet population projections provided by the American Pet Products Association (APPA).
The first step in the process is to determine what your companion’s specific nutritional needs are. Every pet is different, and what’s right for one animal may not work for another. Our experienced staff will conduct a thorough analysis of your pet’s overall health, taking into account such important factors as the breed, age, weight and the existence of any medical conditions or other health concerns. This information will help us to pinpoint exactly what your pet needs to achieve optimum health. We’ll also advise you on how much food and how often you should be feeding your pet to avoid overdoing it.
Next, we’ll work on your pet’s weight. We’ll use the information we gathered during our nutritional analysis to determine your companion’s ideal weight range. Then, we’ll discuss with you your pet’s lifestyle, habits, and preferences. Exercise is something that should be a part of every animal’s daily routine, even those that are older or that suffer from medical conditions. Our skilled staff will work with you to figure out which types of physical activities would be best suited for your pet to help them slim down and maintain their ideal weight range.
You want the very best for your companion, and so do we. Let us develop a customized diet and exercise plan that will meet all of your companion’s nutritional needs and help keep them fit and strong for life. Let us help bring out the very best in your animal friend!
