Did you make a new year’s resolution to be healthier and exercise more? Why not include your pet in your resolution? According to the American Veterinary Medical Association 53% of cats and 55% of dogs are overweight or obese. Overweight pets just like overweight people are at risk for many serious conditions such as heart disease, joint problems, high blood pressure and diabetes. And not only is that extra weight hurting your pet’s health it’s hurting your pocketbook too. Nationwide pet owners are spending millions to treat these preventable problems. Proper nutrition and exercise are critical, talk to us about how you can get your pet to a healthy weight and how to maintain it.
The Doctors and Staff of Bel Air Veterinary Hospital would like to wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
