​Vet24 Nutrition Patients - Success Stories! Here are just a couple of our biggest losers...

Leroy

Leroy is a 9 year old cat and when we first met him he weighed in at an unhealthy 7.55kg, Leroy had a body fat index of 44%. He was a long way from his healthy weight range but with the help of Nutrition Nurse Samantha and a strict diet of Hills Metabolic Advanced Weight Loss food - he finally reached his goal. It took just 8 months for Leroy to get down to 5.6kg, his body fat index is also down to a super healthy 21%! Amazing. Remember - an additional 1kg of weight for a pet is equivalent to 4kg of pressure of the joints, this is especially important for our senior fur friends and the multimodal management of arthritis and joint degeneration.

Leroy loves being out in the garden - he is reportedly more active and playful now.

Bella 

 

Introducing Bella, she is an 8 year old Shar Pei Mix breed. When we first enrolled Bella in our nutrition program, around 12 months ago, she weighed in at 50.2kg and had a body fat index of 55-65% (a healthy body fat index is 11-25%).

With the help of Expert Nutrition Nurse Bianca - a year on and Bella has remarkably lost 11kg, putting her just under the 40kg mark. She is nearing her goal weight of around 30kg. We are so proud of her owners for sticking to the plan and helping Bella shed the pounds, particularly as she can do limited exercise due to severe arthritis.

As pet owners - what we feed our pets is something we have control over. Finding out what the healthy weight range for your pet is can be helpful in choosing what to feed and how much. Benefits for your pet when on our nutrition program are as follows...
*Increased quality and length of life

*Increased mobility

*Achieving a healthy weight range

*Guided progress - avoid the serious health risks of starvation or rapid weight loss or gain

*Real meals for your pet, so he or she wont feel hungry during the process.

At least 70% of cats and dogs we see in the clinic at Vet24 are overweight. 

Starting in May 2017 and for a limited time only, Vet24 clients who purchase Hills Metabolic Dog or Cat food will qualify to recieve a FREE DIGITAL SCALE FOOD BOWL.
