How do I know if my pet is overweight?
Every pet is different. A healthy weight can look different for every breed and at different ages. If you’re unsure if your pet is overweight, the best option is to bring them to see one of our veterinarians. We can assess and determine the ideal body weight for your loyal companion and create a weight management plan to maintain it.
What are the risks of being overweight?
Obesity is one of the most common but preventable conditions in pets. Extra body weight can shorten your pet’s lifespan and put them at risk of developing serious diseases. On your own, it can be difficult to find ways to help your pet maintain a healthy weight. That is why we recommend routine checkups so our veterinarians can work to meet all your pet’s nutritional and medical needs. Some common diseases we would work to prevent include:
- Heart, kidney, and liver disease
- High blood pressure
