Many pets are referred to this clinic by a vet, however, if you feel that your pet is overweight and would like some advice, please contact us and we will be happy to make an appointment for you. These clinics are provided free of charge to our clients but places are limited so we advise that you make your appointment as soon as possible.
Our Healthy Weight Clinics are managed by registered veterinary nurse Kyrstie Bright, who has a special interest in canine and feline nutrition. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire about your pet’s food intake and eating habits and to keep a food diary for your pet over a week or so, which will enable Kyrstie to make a weight loss plan that is based on your pet’s lifestyle and individual requirements. She will then be able to advise you on the best way for you to help your pet lose his or her excess weight and keep it off.
Regular monitoring and weight checks are essential to ensure that your pet is losing weight at a safe rate and so that we can make any adjustments to your pet’s diet as necessary. Initially you will be asked to bring your pet to the surgery every 2 weeks, but once weight loss is steady this may be increased to every 3-4 weeks.
During these appointments your pet will be weighed and measured and any adjustments to your pet’s diet and exercise can be discussed. Most pets start to really enjoy coming in for these appointments.
Helping your pet lose weight will require a commitment to the weight loss and overall fitness of your pet from the whole family, but is well worth the effort and is easier than you think.
