Congratulations to Schnapps, Our Weight Loss Competition Winner!
Click HERE to read Schnapps' story!

Did you know that OVER HALF of all pet dogs and cats in the United States are overweight or obese?! A recent study by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention found that 53% of adult dogs and 55% of cats were classified as overweight or obese by their veterinarian. That equals 88.4 million pets that are too heavy!! This past summer we held our annual “We’re Losin It!” program to encourage healthy weight loss in our overweight patients.  We had four participants this year, two cats and two dogs.  They all did a great job and we are excited to see their continued progress as the journey is usually a long one.  Thank you to all of our participants: Vinnie, Rico, Schnapps, and Alix! This year our winner is Schnapps!
