Is your pet looking a bit round?

Is your pet looking a bit round?

Has your dog or cat put a little too much weight on over the winter? Or do you need a helping hand to shift those few extra pounds from your pet? Well if that was ‘Yes’ Mandy is here to help!!

We all know how hard it can be to stick to a good diet and this is no different for your cat or dog, especially when they give you the big sad eyes at the dinner table! But with the right help and advice we can help you get through the first few weeks, which are always the hardest, and then be there to support you through the rest and get your pet to their correct, healthy weight.

Being overweight can cause health problems, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart conditions
  • Joint problems
  • Pressure sores on bony areas such as the hock
  • Poor coat due to under grooming
  • Poor exercise tolerance

Weight clinics are free and run throughout the morning with Mandy, your pet will be weighed and diet and exercise will be discussed. Once you have gone through all of the above a personal plan will be tailored to yours and your pet’s requirements, meaning we can fit your pet’s weight loss into your families life style.

To book your free weight clinic, or just a weight check please call the practice on 01952 506360 or call in and speak to reception.
