Your dog faces a serious problem. Overweight can lead to arthritis at any age as well as the potential for critical medical problems. A suitable diet advised by your Veterinary Surgeon is essential. This can be assisted by a suitable exercise programme and, where appropriate, hydrotherapy or our underwater treadmill to help burn off those extra calories without putting excess stress on already strained joints.
All treatments are carried out in accordance with the Veterinary Surgeons Act 1966; a Veterinary referral is required.
