By introducing the clinic in the North West, which is the first of its kind
in Europe, we hope to increase the profile of the companion animal obesity
condition. We wish to encourage owners to recognise this growing problem and take their
pets to their veterinary surgeons to seek advice.
By running this clinic we are hoping to address the direct health concerns linked to obesity and improve our understanding of the global problem of companion animal obesity
We are happy to enroll any overweight cats and dogs referred from their Veterinary Surgery, with or without other concurrent disease problems. Our preference is to recruit cases, which have not yet commenced a weight reduction regime. However, challenging or problem cases are also suitable e.g. where progress has been poor or problematic. Cases already making good progress on a weight reduction program would not be suitable for referral.
