Latest statistics

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.
