Weight Clinic

What is a Weight Clinic?

We are running free weight clinics at all of our branches. A weight clinic is designed  for owners to bring their Cat or Dog to see a nurse to discuss their pets weight. It is a very informal non-judgemental chat where you can get advice and work out an action plan for the best way to reduce your pets weight. You will get step-by step help to reaching your pets target weight                            

Unsure if your pet needs to lose weight?

Does your pet struggle to exercise and becomes out of breath?

Are you unable to feel your pets ribs or see a waistline?

Does your pets underbelly hang or nearly touch the ground?

Are you unsure about the best way to reduce your pets diet?

If you answered yes to any of the above then we advise that you make an appointment to see the nurse.
