Maintaining a health body weight is vital to maintaining a healthy and vital pet. Just like in humans – healthy body weight is more than just the number on the scale. It takes into account species, breed, age, gender, lifestyle. It takes into account lean muscle mass. One of the best ways we can do this is by using a concept called Body Condition Score.  Please see the attached graphics for more on this key concept.

There is no charge for our veterinary staff to weigh your pet or to come up with body condition score. Or to help you come up with a diet and exercise plan for your pet.

The majority of cats and dogs in Canada are obese. At Byron Animal Clinic we are committed to changing this. We want to set up puppies and kittens for success. We want to help pets maintain a healthy Body Condition Score throughout their lives. Even if you pet is already “over-conditioned” we want to help you change that!
