Many dogs and cats suffer from obesity, which can cause numerous serious health conditions, like diabetes. Our veterinary staff is experienced in the treatment of pet obesity in dogs and cats. Read on to learn more about the causes of pet obesity and how we can treat this serious condition in your pet.
Causes of Pet Obesity
The causes of pet obesity are often similar to the causes of obesity in humans. We often see obese pets who have gained a great deal of weight due to their owners feeding them too many table scraps. Even pets who don't get too table scraps may become obese if they are allowed to eat too much. Dogs and cats may simply eat everything put in front of them, so owners have to dole out their food in moderation. Pets may also gain weight due to a lack of exercise. A few pets may also have health conditions that cause them to gain weight.
Treating Pet Obesity
Treating obesity in pets is usually pretty simple, especially for our experienced staff. First, we will examine your pet to make sure they do not have a serious health condition that is causing their obesity. We will then specify a healthy brand of pet food for your dog or cat. Next, we will help you come up with an exercise plan to ensure that your pet burns off the excess weight. It will take time for your pet to lose weight, but following the treatment plan that we create will be effective.
