It’s Time To Talk About Pet Obesity

An article about pet obesity from the New York Times

Helping pets live a longer, happier, healthier life is our motto.  We’re sharing this wonderful article from the New Your Times to help inform and educate you about the dangers of pet obesity and hopefully help start the conversation about your pet’s ideal weight and diet.

It’s a difficult, tough topic to discuss sometimes. We know everyone loves their pets and would never dream of hurting them.  The adverse affects of pet obesity don’t show up right away and often times are very subtle, making it hard to realize or see there’s a problem.  We know some folks may be unaware about how much their pet should weigh or how to go about helping their pet lose weigh safely.  We also know some folks may be aware their pet needs to lose a few pounds and struggle with putting a plan in motion because it’s so fun and rewarding to see your pets do their happy dance when you offer a tasty treat and delicious table scraps.

If you’re worried about you’re pet’s health and weight or would like to learn more, please call us to make an appointment.  Our doctors will help you come up with a plan that works for you and your pet.  We’ll be sure to let you know how your pet is doing and if your pet is the ideal weight at every annual exam too.  So enjoy the rest of the summer, get lots of exercise with your pets, and we’ll be happy to share some good ideas and tips for helping you and your pets stay happy and healthy.
