COVID-19 Update

Is your cat or dog overweight

Did you know 45% of all U.S. pets are overweight or obese? While the best treatment is prevention, it is never too late to help your pet get & stay in better shape. If you can’t feel your pet’s ribs, your dog or cat is definitely obese. Let us confirm and rule out other diseases that may cause or look like obesity. If your dog has a thyroid problem, that slows down the metabolism, so they gain weight. Fluid in the abdomen from a variety of diseases or a mass in the abdomen can also make your pet look like it has gained weight.
