Our Practice Nurses are all experienced registered Veterinary Nurses and are an excellent source of help and advice in helping your animal with any dietary problems. Obesity is a growing problem in our pets and the old adage that we are "killing them with kindness" is often all too true. Diabetes is now a frequent diagnosis in our pets and the incidence of heart disease is also following this worrying trend. Every day we are seeing overweight dogs and cats who are suffering with arthritis due to the extra load placed on their joints over a lifetime.

As with most things prevention is far better than cure and at Woodlands we aim to be helpful in dietary advice throughout a pets life...... not just when the problems start. The staff at Woodlands will aim to weigh your pet at each visit to the clinic. We keep records and graphs of your pets weight and can pick up subtle changes often before they are visible to an owner. We always encourage owners to come in regularly for a 'weigh in'. It helps the dogs feel more familiar with the surgery and also means we can all keep track of their progress and keep them fit and healthy!
 
IF YOU THINK YOUR PET NEEDS A WEIGHT CHECK PLEASE DO NOT PUT IT OFF!
