Canine obesity is a problem that normally develops later in life but is almost always a result of habits you or your pet develop in diet and exercise early. The Southlake TX veterinarians at Colleyville Animal Clinic can help you develop healthy habits for your dog through regular checkups, diet, and exercise routines.

 

Obesity simply means your pet’s frame is carrying excess fat storages on their frame. An alarming number of domestic dogs are approaching obesity or are already obese. The most common cause of pet obesity is their food intake and lack of exercise. Table scraps, often called “people food,” is likely the most harmful thing you can feed your pet. Colleyville Animal Clinic can help you select a specifically designed pet food that is not only safe but will help overall health.

 

Advice from the Southlake vet, Colleyville Animal Clinic, should be sought before you make changes to your pet’s diet and exercise habits regardless of your dog’s current weight and health. Crash diets and excessive exercise are unsafe ways to help your pet lose weight. Slow and consistent methods are recommended along with lower-calorie food.

 

Taking care of your pet is of great importance to Colleyville Animal Clinic and the professional veterinarians serving the Southlake and surrounding cities are here to help your pet lose weight and promote better health.
