In addition to proper dental care, nutrition is one of the cornerstones for having a healthy dog or cat. Did you know that estimates indicate that approximately half of all pets in the United States are considered overweight or obese? Pets that are overweight face many of the same medical problems faced by people who overeat. Diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease and arthritis can all strike overweight people as well as pets. Dr. Varela and his staff have years of experience determining the proper diet and portions for pets. Schedule an appointment with Buck Lake Animal Hospital and have your pet evaluated today.
