Free Weight Clinics
Pet obesity is one of the most common conditions we see -
affecting cats, dogs, and increasingly, rabbits.
The problem is that weight gain is a gradual process and
obesity can be overlooked or, to a degree, accepted.
Weight gain is not immediately life threatening or debilitating
but affects nearly every body system. An obese pet will have
a reduced life expectancy.
Reasons for obesity are varied and range from simply overfeeding
or lack of exercise to a genetic predisposition.
Weight clinics have been long established at The Veterinary
Centre and are run by our qualified and experienced Veterinary
Nurses. You may be referred when you see a vet - or you can
simply book a first appointment if you are concerned that
your pet may be overweight. There is no charge for this clinic.
