How can I help my pet lose weight?

Weight problems are common in cats and dogs and can be successfully managed through a few simple changes in lifestyle, feeding or a nutrition program.

Feed the healthy pet inside

Do you know how much your pet should weigh to be healthier, happier and more active?

We are offering free weight assessment by your veterinarian and staff for a limited time to establish IDEAL weight rather than CURRENT weight. For weight loss to occur, pets may need to consume fewer calories than the amount required to maintain their ideal body weight. Following your veterinarians feeding plan based on an accurate estimate of ideal body weight will ensure you don’t overfeed.
