Weight Management

Hill’s Reducing Diet | Eukanuba Reducing Diet

Unfortunately the number of overweight pets has increased dramatically in recent times. Latest statistics show that a startling 40% of dogs and 33% of cats are overweight.

An overweight pet is far more likely to suffer from health problems many of which can be serious. These may include:

  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Joint problems
  • Respiratory disorders
  • Increased anaesthetic and surgical risk
  • High blood pressure
  • Constipation
  • Fatty liver

Please contact the clinic if you would like some advice on weight management for your pet. A consultation with the vet is usually recommended first to rule out certain health problems which may cause weight gain.

Once the all clear is given we can formulate a weight loss programme for your pet using one of the prescription weight loss diets.

Hi our names are Arabella, Charlie, Whisky and Gina Roberton and we are all patients of the Abbotts Way Veterinary Clinic. We would like to thank David & Rachael for their outstanding and friendly service over the years. During an emergency the staff have looked after not only us but our parents Anna & David. We have ALWAYS had a follow up phone call to see how we are and we receive personally addressed letters containing treats when our vaccines are due. We are happy to get out of our cages when we arrive as we know that even during injection and worming time we will be pampered. From all of us in chorus, MEOW, MEOW, MEOW, MEOW and a very big thank you for all you have done for us”

-Anna & David Roberton, St. Heliers
