There are MANY benefits of weight loss as well as serious risks associated with chronic obesity. Obesity in dogs is linked to many diseases, including diabetes, arthritis, respiratory disease, cancer, and heart conditions just to name a few. Also, overweight and obese dogs live shorter lives than dogs of ideal weight. Slimming down your pets will not only extend their life, but increase the quality of their life spent with your family.
Because ideal weights can vary greatly even within breed standards we recommend weigh assessment by body condition scoring and our technicians can even use long bone and head measurements to determine the best weight for your individual pet!
