How Do I Know What Is a Healthy Weight For My Pet?

If you have concerns about your pet gaining too much weight, make an appointment to visit your veterinarian.  There are some health conditions that can cause your pet to gain weight and an exam with blood work can help to rule out some of these conditions.  If your pet is otherwise healthy, you may need to change his diet to help him shed a few pounds.

 

How can you tell if your pet is overweight? We have provided two score sheets to offer you some guidance:

 

Feline Body Condition Score Sheet

 

Canine Body Condition Score Sheet

 

 

If you find your pet is heavier than he should be, call Bertrand Drive Animal Hospital to schedule an appointment to discuss your concerns and have your pet examined.  Your vet can help rule out any health conditions and guide you on the best way to put your BFF on a diet.
