University of Minnesota ( U of M ) College of Veterinary Medicine recognizes National Pet Obesity Awareness Day!
On October 8th, 2014 you can bring your pet into the U of M clinic to receive a body score for Fido or Fifi. Walk Ins are available. Obesity in pets can cause many other illnesses including significant pain in joints and should be addressed. Animals that are 15% over their ideal weight could shorten their lives by 2 years! While you’re at the clinic, register for a free nutrition consultation and find out how to make sure your pet has a good quality of life.
