Weight Management for Your Pet

Most pets love to eat. From begging for treats to begging for scraps from your plate, many pets spend most of the day in search of their next snack. Because they’re so good at convincing you to give them just one more treat—and because they often love napping almost as much as they love eating—it’s easy for pets’ weight to get out of control. Unfortunately, being overweight is as dangerous for your pet as it is for you. The good news is that the veterinarians at Chastain Veterinary Medical Group can help with your pet’s weight management.

At every appointment at our animal clinic, your pet will be weighed and examined so that the vet can assign him or her a body condition score. If your pet is found to be overweight, our team will give you advice for nutrition, exercise, behavior modifications, and toys that will help your pet drop the pounds and avoid weight-related medical conditions.

Help your pet live a long and healthy life with the help of the veterinarians at Chastain Veterinary Medical Group. You can schedule a visit at our pet hospital in Dallas or McKinney by calling Meadow Brook Animal Hospital in McKinney at (972) 529-5033 or by calling Preston Road Animal Hospital in Dallas at (972) 239-1309.
