Pet obesity is an epidemic and it’s getting worse. The team at the Pet Care Clinic of Doral is here to work with you on a specific diet to keep your pet feeling happy and healthy!

According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, 53% of adult dogs and 55% of cats in the US are obese or overweight. 22% of dog owners and 15% of cat owners said their pet’s weight was normal when it was actually overweight or obese.

It’s important to work with your veterinarian on a diet plan for your pet, as well as an exercise plan to keep them happy and healthy. If your pet is overweight or obese, it can cause arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, certain cancers, heart and respiratory disease, and other problems.

We check your pet’s weight every single time they come into our office to make sure they are not heading down the wrong path towards obesity. Let’s work together to get your pets eating the right food, with the correct amounts, and be sure to manage their overall intake together.

Obesity is not just a cat and dog problem, it’s the number one health problem in pet birds. Most birds have food available all the time, so they don’t have to work for their dinner.
