Animal weight clinics Our free animal weight clinics can help with pet obesity. If you pooch has put on a few pounds or your cat is struggling to get through the catflap, it may be time to bring them to our free nurse weight clinic. Animal obesity is on the rise, and like in humans excess weight places strain on the joints, heart and lungs. Animals who are overweight can experience disease associated with old age sooner, and existing conditions can be made worse. It can be hard to know where to start – commercial animal food ofter recommends you feed your pet far more than is really required. As with humans, active pets need more food whilst older, stay at home types need less. Our free nurse weight clinic can help you work out a plan that will suit your pet, helping them safely shift the extra weight and live longer, happier lives.
