So your dog is a little overweight… what do a few pounds matter anyway? What if we told you studies have shown a dog’s life expectancy can be reduced by up to 2.5 years as a result of being obese. Would that grab your attention? How about if we told you that a dog is at increased risk of suffering from diseases such as insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, heart and respiratory disease, ligament injury, kidney disease and many forms of cancer. Would you be a little more concerned about those few extra pounds then?
At the Wellington Veterinary Clinic we believe maintaining your pet’s ideal body condition is crucial for ensuring your pets have the best opportunity for the highest quality of life possible. We are happy to announce our NEW Curvy Canine Club! This club is designed to help those families that are struggling to get their dogs to lose weight on their own and would like a little more help. One membership equals eight weeks in our program. Membership benefits include (but are not limited to) FREE Wellington Dog Park membership, weekly journals with personalized nutrition plans, professional guidance from our weigh coaches, organized Saturday fun days for the whole family, and graduation ceremony complete with prizes.
