Why do you check my dog’s weight every time he/she comes in for a visit?

Having an accurate and current measurement of your pet’s weight can help us notice any early clues to health concerns. It will also help us ensure that we prescribe the right dose of preventives, medications, and any needed anesthetics. In addition, a regular weigh-in can help you track and manage your pet’s weight.

For the smaller pets, being aware of a small change such as 10 grams body weight can be critical to planning the next steps of their health care. Weighing your pet is part of a detailed health care approach, regardless of their size!
