Weight management is an important part of your pet’s health care. Obesity in animals is linked to an increased risk of conditions such as osteoarthritis and diabetes mellitus as well as impacting on their ability to exercise and breath. Conversely pets that seem unable to gain weight can often have an underlying medical condition.
If you are unsure if your pet is of a healthy weight, please feel free to pop in and speak to one of our nurses who can advise on diet and exercise. Alternately follow the link below to see WSAVA Body condition score.
