Meet Heidi, our Pismo Beach Veterinary Clinic Pet of the Week. Heidi is proof that you CAN get your dog to shed pounds. By the age of 3, Heidi was obese at 116 pounds. Like people, obesity is a major problem in our pets and can contribute to many medical problems such as arthritis, breathing difficulties, skin problems, diabetes, and others. With a diligent feeding regimen and lots of love, Heidi successfully lost almost 40 pounds!
Good job to both Heidi and her caring family!
Below are Heidi’s before and after pictures followed by a Purina body condition chart so you can see if your pet is the right weight.
