Is your dog or cat overweight? FREE weight assessments @ Bakenkop Animal Clinic
Pet obesity is becoming a more common problem seen in general practice. Many pet owners mistakenly think that their pet’s size is normal, even when they are overweight. I would say that about 60% of the patients that we see weigh more than their ideal weight.
When a pet is overweight we strongly advise pet owners to enroll them into a weight-loss program.
For a successful weight-loss program, you need some motivation and perseverance. With our program at Bakenkop Animal Clinic we are able to help pet owners choose the perfect diet for their pets, help with feeding guidelines, give them advice on how to incorporate this diet into their lifestyle and schedule regular weigh-ins to monitor their pet’s progress.
When a pet is enrolled into a program, it keeps the owners motivated and goal focused.
Our Clinic also offers hydrotherapy exercise sessions to speed up weight loss.
