It's that time of year again, we said we wouldn't but we have and it's elasticated waist trousers for the foreseeable future. If you're making some New Year's resolutions about your health and wellbeing in 2019 why not include your pets as well?
Obesity is unfortunately as much of an issue for our canine and feline friends as it is for the rest of us, with the British Veterinary Association (BVA) citing it as one of the biggest concerns for vets in recent years. Finding the right diet for your pet which offers the perfect combination of calories, fats, protein, oils, fibre etc. can be very confusing. Their dietary needs will depend on age, size, breed, general health and activity level and unfortunately can often be wrongly determined by using the guides on feed bags.
Our qualified veterinary nurses are always happy to see pets in their free 'weight watcher' clinics who need some help reaching their 'ideal' weight. They are able to come up with reasonable daily steps you can take in terms of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle to help your pet become fitter and healthier.
To book your pet in for a weight assessment please phone our small animal reception team on 01572 722646.
