If your new year’s resolution is to eat better, get fit and be healthier, you should consider including your pets in your new year’s resolution.
Pet obesity puts your loved one at risk of:
- Insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Heart and respiratory disease
- Cranial cruciate ligament injury
- Kidney disease
- Many forms of cancer
- Decreased life expectancy (up to 2.5 years)
Consider a good diet for your pet and increasing the amount of exercise and play your pet is getting!
If you need help with your pet’s weight loss plan, come visit us at Belmont Veterinary Services for some support and suggestions.
We wish you and your pets a happy and healthy new year!
