Weight Management

Help your pet achieve a balanced weight with our weight management program.

Maintaining a healthy weight is essential to your pet’s well-being and quality of life. Our weight management service can help your pet achieve and maintain an optimal weight for a happier and more active life.

Why is weight management important for my pet?

Weight management is key to your pet’s overall health. Excess weight can lead to many health problems such as joint issues, diabetes, heart problems, breathing difficulties, skin problems and more. Maintaining a healthy weight helps to prevent these problems while improving your pet’s quality of life.

How can I tell if my pet is overweight?

It can be difficult to recognize when your pet is overweight. Signs that your pet may be carrying excess weight include reduced physical activity, difficulty walking or running, heavy breathing, noticeable weight gain or a layer of fat around the ribcage and abdominal area. Our veterinary team can assess your pet’s weight and determine whether they need to lose weight based on size, age and overall health.

How does the weight management program work?

Our weight management program is adapted to the individual needs of each animal. We start by assessing your pet’s overall health, current weight, level of activity and diet. Based on this information, we will develop a customized weight management plan that includes a balanced diet, appropriate exercise and regular follow-up.
