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.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"
    Maya Smith / Los Angeles, CA
  • "I have benefited tremendously from the care my pet received from Dr. Anderson."
    John Doe / San Diego, CA
  • "Fabio wasn’t eating the food I was giving him and I didn’t feel he was getting the nutrition he needed. Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
