Weight Loss and Nutrition

Maintaining a healthy weight is the single most important thing you can do for your pet, and we are here to help.

Our medical staff is excited to be a part of your pet’s weight loss journey and will work with you by custom tailoring a weight loss program. By focusing on certain diets, introducing exercise regimens, and monitoring via monthly weigh-ins, we celebrate every pound shed off. Unmanaged obesity in pets causes more severe arthritis, leads to diabetes, and causes severe heart problems. Below are some of our advanced treatments for maximizing weight loss:

  • Rehabilitation and exercise programs
  • Underwater treadmill
  • Prescription diets that increase metabolism
  • Supplements to lower cholesterol

Some pets have more specific nutritional requirements. For example, if your pet has been diagnosed with liver, kidney, or heart disease they likely are in need of a special prescription diet to prevent further damage to those organs. Some of our patients have severe food allergies and also need a specially formulated diet. Do not hesitate to ask our doctors about our prescription diet formulas.
