Obesity is as common a problem in household pets as it is in people. It’s important that you avoid allowing your pet to take in more calories than he or she will burn off per day. According to many vet’s, obesity can cause an array of health problems, including cancer.

So what do you need to do?

  • See the vet at least once per year. This is an important part of your pet's preventative medicine program.
  • Older pets should be seen more frequently based upon their age and other medical issues.
  • Properly examining and discussing their health risks with your vet, allows your vet to assist you.
  • Your vet can help design a customized health program for your pet's specific health requirements.
  • Early detection of problems like dental, cardiac, gastrointestinal, orthopedic or behavioral issues allows a greater chance of successfully treating your pet’s health conditions.
