With all the ingredients that pet foods are made of nowadays and the uncertainties about the ideal body weight, it can be difficult to manage a pet’s weight and diet. That’s why Los Feliz Small Animal Hospital offers weight management and nutrition services. Our knowledgeable doctors and technicians can discuss your pet’s specific needs during the standard wellness exam.
During the exam, we conduct a weight check and compare it to your pet’s recommended Body Condition Score (BCS), which takes into account species and age. If we find your pet to be overweight, we can discuss their diet and activity level and customize a diet and exercise plan based on that information. We can also address the best food options and ingredients for weight management, portion sizes, and exercise tips to help your pet reach a healthy weight.
Once the diet and exercise plan is established, we can monitor your pet’s progress with monthly weigh-in check-ups to determine if any additional changes need to be made.
