As animals get older, they can develop painful joints just like in people. Our nurses can
help if you are feeling concerned, by talking through key signs such as a reduction in
exercise or place, stiffnes or lameness. They can talk through options to relieve
symptoms such as therapy to ease pain, diet or joint supplements.

Obesity in animals places extra demands on their body and organs, which can lead to
many problems, including arthritis, heart disease, increased blood pressure, respiratory
problems, diabetes, decreased stamina, decreased liver and immune function,
increased risk of cancer, decreased quality and length of life, and finally increased
surgical and anaesthetic risk. Our weight management clinic offer regular appointments
with one of our qualified nurses to monitor your pet's progress after an initial
consultation to assess their weight and body score, to decide on a target weight and
how to get there. The nurse will support you through the whole process, discussing diet
and exercise plans that can be adapted as you go depending on the regular weigh ins.
