We all know what happens to humans if they are overweight, but did you know that pets are susceptible to these medical problems as well? Diabetes, arthritis, heart problems, torn ligaments, breathing problems are all medical problems that overweight pets can also be prone to.  At Sugarloaf Animal Clinic our goal is to keep pets living a longer, happier, and healthier life. One of the methods of accomplishing this goal, along with good preventative care, is to keep our pets lean and in good body condition. Most owners think their pets are in good body condition, but if you cannot easily feel their pet’s ribs and they do not have a waist then they may need to lose some weight.  Schedule your appointment today to have an exam and weight loss consultation. Not only are there prescription diets and treats, but we will also examine their current diet, rule out medical problems such as hypothyroidism that can cause unexplained weight gain, and  make a customized weight loss plan for your pet. In addition, we will re-evaluate their weight and diet every 3 weeks at no additional charge. See the video below for some excellent tips as well!
