Fitness and Weight Loss
Fitness is the age-old key to longevity so it is never too early to start on a wellness program. Did you know that dogs that are only 20% overweight are 5 times as likely to succumb to arthritic pain or mobility challenges? Don’t let a little extra love around the middle threaten the health and comfort of your beloved pet. Stop by or give us a call to get information or set up a Weight loss/ Fitness Consultation with Dr. Nixon.
What to expect during a Weight Loss/ Fitness Consultation
Dr. Nixon will begin with a physical evaluation of your pet that includes a physical and nutritional assessment and will then design an exercise program based on your pet’s level of fitness. This program will include strength and endurance training exercises based on the needs of your pet, as well as diet recommendations and an exercise program to perform at home.
