Join our pet Waist Watchers Club

As many as 40-50% of pets in the UK are overweight and obesity is associated with many serious health problems such as arthritis, heart disease and liver disease to name but as few.

At Pet Care, we run a Waist Watchers Club to provide help to any of our clients who have questions or problems with an overweight pet. This information is provided to our clients as part of our continuing commitment to improve health.

Our Pet Nutrition Advisers who run the clinics are always happy to give advice on all aspects of your pet’s dietary needs. The practice stocks a range of specially diets to aid with your pet’s weight loss if adjustments to the normal diet are unsuccessful. These are available in a tin, pouch or biscuit form.

We recommend that all pets that are on a diet have their weight checked at regular intervals – normally every two-four weeks. This is a good opportunity for you to discuss your pet’s progress with our pet nutrition advisors. Waist Watchers appointments can be booked at reception and are COMPLEMENTARY.

Reward your pet with cuddles, games and going for walks rather than with food. If you feel the need to reward with treats, you can either give some from your pet’s daily allowance or you could give raw fruit/vegetables. Encourage your pets to play more and therefore us up more energy. We recommend a re visit to the surgery for a re-weigh every three to four weeks.

Very caring and friendly.

My cat went missing and I phoned around everywhere to see if she had been found. The lady I spoke to at this vets was very helpful and gave me lots of people to ring and spent time with me to try and ease my mind. Thankfully she was found locked in my neighbours garage. I just want to say a huge thank you for your support even though I am not a customer of yours.

PetCare have looked after our animals since we moved to the area in 1996 and, in every case, have gone the extra mile to make sure our pets are as cared for as well as we would look after them ourselves. Several of our dogs get excited about going there!
