Today is Pet Obesity Awareness Day

By October 12, 2016Uncategorized

Just as we are seeing more and more humans becoming overweight, we are seeing the same trend in our pets.  The long term health implications for obesity in pets can be quite harmful.  They are susceptible to the same conditions as humans…diabetes, joint issues, high blood pressure and overall decrease in longevity.  An article from the Canadian Veterinary Medical Association provides some very sobering information about pet obesity.  Click here to read.  At Lockerby Animal Hopsital we are proud to say that we have had great success in helping our veterinary patients lose weight and improve their quality of life.  If you are concerned that your dog or cat may be overweight, please contact us for a consult.  Call 705-522-4555 or email [email protected]
