If you are someone that loves to feed your pets lots of treats or your pet hates the idea of exercise or physical activity, you might be struggling with your pet's weight issues. Whether your pet is in need of behavioral or physical help, you can get help at Trilby Animal Hospital with Dr. Moore’s weight management for pets services. Our veterinarian in Toledo wants your pet to live a long and healthy life and having a healthy weight can help your pet achieve optimal health. Below are some of the reasons our weight loss services can improve your pet's quality of life.
Does My Pet Need to Lose Weight?
The most common problem pet owners face is whether their pet needs to lose weight. If your pet's body condition score (BCS) is greater than 7, it may need to lose some weight. The BCS rating system uses visible physical indicators, such as the amount of fat covering the rib cage and abdomen, to assess a pet's body fat percentage. You can also measure your pet's waist circumference or body length to check if it is overweight. If you think your pet needs to lose weight, make sure to contact our veterinarian in Toledo to schedule an appointment.
The Benefits of Weight Loss for Pets
Weight loss can provide numerous benefits for your pet. Losing weight can help reduce the risk of developing serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and joint problems. Additionally, it can improve your pet's mobility and physical activity level. It will also make your pet look better since it won't have extra fat covering its body.
