Diet & Weight Management

Occasionally, humans overindulge in food and so do our pets. Weight management & diet are important aspects of pet health that are often over looked. At Breadner Veterinary Services we offer complimentary Diet/Weight Counselling with one of our Registered Animal Health Technicians (RAHT) who can counsel you in achieving a safe and effective weight loss plan for your pet. A RAHT can advise you of your pet’s body score, how many calories in a day they should be receiving and work with you to design a weight management plan specific to your pet’s needs and your lifestyle. Giving you these tools, we are here to help you succeed in your pet’s weight loss. We follow your pet’s progress every step of the way, always inviting you to bring in your pet to be weighed at your convenience, no appointment needed!

Rocco’s Story – Spring of 2009

Meet smiling Rocco! He’s so happy because of the excellent job him & his owners have done in shedding some pounds.

Rocco had 2 TPLO knee surgeries in the past 3 years. The problems in his knees resulted from several factors, one of which was his weight. Through a diet change, exercise, and a gradual weight loss plan, Rocco lost over 16 kg – which is over 35lbs!
