Weight and Nutrition

Weight management

Obesity in dogs and cats is far too common a problem and is a significant health concern. Getting our companion animal family members to loose weight is no small feat.  With each patient being different, this has been accomplished in a number of ways

  • decreasing diet intake
  • changing diet types
  • cutting back or eliminating treats
  • supplementing with fruits or vegetables (with the exception of grapes, raisins and onions)
  • regular exercise

In each case, recommendations were made following consultation and the weight loss was monitored with regular (usually monthly) weigh ins.

So, to those dedicated owners congratulations for making your furry four legged family member healthier!


We recommend feeding a premium quality puppy food.  Large breed puppies have unique requirements and should be fed a large breed puppy food.
