How do I know if my animal needs to lose weight?

Our veterinary team conducts a body condition assessment to determine if your cat or dog needs to lose weight. Revealing signs include decreased activity, difficulty moving, or changes in appetite. Excess weight can lead to health problems, so if you observe these signs or have concerns, feel free to schedule a consultation. Our team will assess your pet’s current weight relative to its breed, size, and activity level, providing personalized advice for optimal health.

What are the risks associated with obesity in pets?

Obesity in pets carries several health risks, including:

  • Diabetes: Excess weight can contribute to the development of diabetes, affecting glucose regulation.
  • Joint Disorders: Excess weight puts additional pressure on the joints, increasing the risk of arthritis and joint injuries.
  • Heart Diseases: Obesity is associated with an increased risk of diseases affecting cardiac function.
  • Respiratory Problems: Overweight pets may experience breathing difficulties, especially during physical activity.
  • Reduced Life Expectancy: Obese pets generally have a shorter life expectancy due to associated health complications.

These risks underscore the importance of maintaining a healthy weight to ensure long-term vitality and well-being for your cat or dog. If you suspect a weight issue, our veterinary team can help you develop a management plan tailored to your pet’s specific needs.
