A healthy lifestyle is just as important to our pets as it is to us humans. Keeping your pet active, good nutrition and reducing treats will keep them at a healthy weight and could help lower the risk of things like diabetes, joint damage and heart disease. Did you know diabetes affects 1 in 200 cats and 1 in 300 dogs?
Could there be a problem?
If you answer yes to any of the questions below you may want to talk to us about weight management:
- Do you have difficulty feeling your pet’s ribs?
- Is there little or no ‘waist’?
- Is your pet reluctant to exercise?
- Does your pet seem to tire easily with activity?
- Does your pet keep eating so long as there is food in the bowl?
At Parish Lane Vets we can offer advice on exercise, nutrition and weight management. If you suspect your pet may be overweight, please give us a call and book a health check with one of our experienced vets.
Our vet will perform a comprehensive nose to tail and weight check, and will discuss a diet and exercise plan tailored for your pets lifestyle and nutritional needs.
We will be with you offering support and advice every step of the way!
