Obesity in pets is currently a huge health concern in the Veterinary sector. It can lead to, and significantly influence, a range of health problems including debilitating conditions such as osteoarthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and many others. Achieving a health weight and body condition score can have a positive impact on many of these conditions and greatly enhances your pet’s wellbeing. Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight can even occasionally result in a significant decrease, or in some cases complete elimination, of medication needed for these conditions.
With pets coming in lots of different shapes and sizes it can be extremely challenging to know what to feed them and how much exercise they need. At Aylesbury Vets we’ll advise on your pet’s nutrition and their physical activity whilst working with you to create a tailor made food and fitness plan for your pet so as to help improve their overall wellbeing and longevity.
