Weight management seems to be a huge (no pun intended!) issue. Some people are literally killing their pets with love. According to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), half of our cats and dogs are overweight. Excess weight can cause or contribute to:
  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Lipomas
  • Pancreatic disease
  • Chronic pain
Not only is this one of the easiest things to remedy, but in doing so you can save yourself hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in vet bills, as well as add years to your beloved pets' life. There are new foods that not only use calorie restriction, but actually boost metabolism enabling your pet to get back to "goal" weight faster.

We can help you evaluate your pets' diet and weight. Please talk to us about getting your pet in shape, it is easier than you think!
