If your pet is at risk, team up with us today!
Many of our patients are already on the fitness track. We will get your pet started with a Body Condition Score as well as a feeding recommendation to help achieve a weight loss target determined by your veterinarian.
What’s a Body Condition Score? Because dogs and cats can vary so much in size, even within a breed, the Body Condition Score focuses more on shape than weight. Your veterinarian will give your dog or cat a score from one to nine, with one being too thin and nine obese – four to five is ideal for dogs and five is ideal for cats.
