Slim down with Hills Metabolic!

Grant & Bindi

Obesity is one of the most common diseases in both dogs and cats. It is currently estimated that 40% of dogs and 30% of cats in Australia are overweight. An animal is considered overweight when it exceeds its ideal body weight by >15%. Successful weight management needs to incorporate diet, exercise and the relationship between the pet and owner.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Keeping your pet’s weight within a healthy range will:

  • Increase life expectancy and improve overall health.
  • Reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, diabetes, liver disease and other weight related conditions. Overweight animals are predisposed to conditions including pancreatitis, respiratory, urinary and skin problems.
  • Reduce the risk of orthopaedic diseases including osteoarthritis, cranial cruciate ligament rupture and inter-vertebral disc disease.
  • Help to manage arthritic pain, which is very important in older animals.
