Healthy Weight - Happy Pet = Longer Life
Posted on Sep 15, 2019

Should You Be Concerned About Your Pets Weight?

In one word.... YES!

Maintaining a healthy body weight means your pet will live longer and will have less chance of developing conditions such as -  diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and many forms of cancer.


How Do You Know If Your Pet Is At A Healthy Weight?

Ask your Veterinarian to do a Body Condition Score of your pet.   On a scale of 1 to 9.... 5 is an ideal score.  While it may be hard to achieve a perfect score of 5..  getting as close to it should be the goal for your pet.  Our goal is to help pet parents prevent their pets from becoming overweight right from the start.


Visit this link for full access to the Pet Weight Check Tool Guide on the
Pet Obesity Prevention Website.

Click Here
 

There is lots of information out there accessible on the internet and of course, your Veterinarian can help you determine what a healthy weight for your pet will be.   As a guideline a list of breeds and the "average weight range" for the breed gives you something to go on.... of course as with people there will be some variation.


Visit this link to see the average weight range for your pets breed.

Click Here


Just for fun the WSAVA.org website also has a Pet to Human Weight Translator.   Use the weight equivalent charts to determine how much your pet weighs compared to an average adult human male or female.

Click Here


How many calories your pet requires in a day will be determined by breed, age, activity level and current body weight.    Many pet foods provide too many calories and can lead to obesity, especially if portions  and treats are not measured.


Animal Hospital of Cambridge Pet Fit Weight Loss Program

Figuring all of this out on your own can be confusing.   It is not as simple as cutting back your pets current food.. because you will also be cutting back the nutrients your pet needs to maintain lean muscle.

If your pet truly needs to shed some pounds, a specially formulated weight loss food will help your pet to lose weight.  We have a variety of diets that we can recommend to you.  Your pet can still feel full because they can eat a normal portion size.  The Pet Fit Program is free for pets beginning these weight loss diets so we can help answer you questions along the way and ensure we are reaching safe weight loss goals.


If you would like help with your pets weight, we are here to help !  

Just give us a call to discuss your pets nutrition needs.

Weight Loss Success Story

Meet Charlie !

When Charlie the Golden Retriever started his weight loss journey
he weighed in at 79 Kgs ( 173.8lbs) !   Along with our Registered Veterinary Technician Michele and his pet parents, Charlie began our Pet Fit Weight Loss Program in February 2018.  
This has been an ongoing process with regular weight check-ins and support.  


 

This is Charlie "Before"

His waist belly hung straight across, we could not feel his ribs, and he had no visible waist looking from above.

Fast forward to September 2019..

 

 


 

With a lot of exercise, weighing food portions on gram scales, treat control, and regular weight check-in appointments, Charlie successfully lost 32.1 kgs of body weight.   He is now down to 46.9 Kgs (103.2lbs) !!!

 

Charlie belly now tucks up and you can see his waist when looking from above.  We are so happy for Charlie and his fur parents knowing that he is well on his way to a healthier, more fit dog.  

Congratulations Charlie!!
