Weight Loss Programs at the Southern Animal Hospital Group
In Australia, over 41% of dogs and 32% of cats are clinically overweight or obese.
Just like in humans, an overweight pet is at risk from a wide range of problems including:
- diabetes mellitus
- heart disease
- skin complaints
- breathing difficulties
- shortened lifespan (losing an average of 2-3 years!)
At all of our hospitals, we offer a free weight loss consultation service (with our senior nurses) in order to help pets lose weight and attain their ideal body condition.
During these consultations, we aim to ascertain the causes of the weight gain, and establish a weight loss plan in order to help pets reach their ideal body weight.
We have had much success since implementing this service, with many dogs and cats finally reaching their ideal body weight, after being obese for many years!
