Your pet’s fuel is their food. In order to have high energy levels, a shiny and luxurious coat, and a healthy weight, their food has to have the proper vitamins and minerals. For pets with chronic conditions such as diabetes or cancer, their food can be an important tool in the fight against disease, and can either alleviate or aggravate their symptoms in some circumstances.
At our facility, we have clinically-proven, nourishing pet food for the benefit of our clients. We will work with you to recommend the perfect food for your pet based on their age, size, and pre-existing conditions such as disease or obesity.
Approximately one out of every three pets in the U.S. is overweight or obese. And pets that are over their ideal weight are more vulnerable to diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, high blood pressure, skin issues, and more. They also experience a diminished quality of life because they are not able to run and play like their trim counterparts.
If you are worried your pet is overweight, the first thing to do is ask your veterinarian. At Broadway Veterinary Clinic, we will weigh them, and tell you if and how much excess body weight they have based on their height, breed, and other measurements.
Once we have an idea of the severity of the situation, we can begin to create a plan to get them into shape. Some of the factors of a weight loss plan for pets could include:
