Nutrition itself seriously affects pet health, especially when your pet is getting older. Weight management is one of the most critical factors in maintaining pet health. Giving your pet unlimited access to food is one of the worst things you can do. If you’re trying to help your pet gain weight please do consult nutrition plan with your vet as by doing it by yourself and without proffessional knowledge – you may harm your pet. During a routine exam, we can discuss the exact amount of food to add or subtract from your pet’s diet based on breed, activity level, and current weight. Remember that overweight pets are more likely to suffer from arthritis, certain cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and skin problems.
