Weight Management for Cats and Dogs
Weight management is important for cats and dogs, just as it is important for humans. If your cat or dog is carrying extra weight or is underweight, it can increase the risk of several types of health conditions and diseases. It can also negatively affect the mood, energy level, and behavior of the pet. At Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital, our veterinarian is experienced in weight management for different types of pets.
Whether you want to have a complete health checkup for your pet or want to just have a quick weight management consultation, our veterinarian will be able to guide you to the best course of action. Keep in mind, that being overweight and underweight, are both considered unhealthy. If your pet suffers from either of these conditions or you want to follow a preventative program, visit our clinic as soon as possible.
Where to Begin
As a first step, our veterinarian would like to be certain that there are no underlying conditions with your pet that are causing it to be overweight or underweight. We may need some diagnostic tests to be performed to check for any underlying conditions. If no specific health conditions are causing the pet to have weight issues, our veterinarian will prescribe a weight management program for your pet. This program may include a combination of nutritional changes, supplements, activities, and lifestyle changes. Not only can we guide you on how to get your pet to an ideal weight, but we can also guide you on how to maintain that weight for the pet in the long-run.
