What can be done to control my pet's weight?

Working with a veterinarian is the best way to help your loyal companion lose weight. It's more than just cutting back their meals as you want to make sure your pet still gets the nutrients they need to be healthy. Our veterinary team can create a weight loss plan for your pet that includes the following:

  • Special diet: Removing certain items from their diet and feeding them foods that help them shed weight.
  • Exercise: Adding activities to their routine can help them burn calories.
  • Change feeding plan: Minimizing snacks/treats and schedule their meals at certain times.
