Obesity is a serious issue among pets that causes many health problems. It is currently recorded that 50% of pets are obese. At our clinic, we’ve created a judgment-free zone to get your loyal companion to a healthy weight. We spend extra time working with pet parents to create a lifestyle and diet that will aid the patient’s weight loss journey. To discuss your pet’s weight, please call us at 519-389-2020.
As your pet’s guardian, you can see the difference when they’ve put on some extra pounds. From a veterinary perspective, we determine if your pet is overweight by comparing their current weight to their ideal weight. Each pet has an ideal weight determined by their size, age, and breed.
