Designation earned

PLATTSBURGH — Palmer Veterinary Clinic Licensed Veterinary Technician Michaela Chase is Purina’s newest Certified Weight Management Coach, the second certified coach in the practice.

An in-clinic coach is available to provide support and tools to pet owners and to help fight the growing trend of pet obesity. As part of the Purina Certified Weight Coach Program, the local coach will specialize in pet obesity and serve as a resource for those owners who need support to get their pets closer to slimmer and healthier lifestyles.

According to the American Association for Pet Obesity Prevention survey, more than 50 percent of dogs and cats in America are facing obesity. Risks include diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

The Purina Certified Weight Coach Program is part of the nationwide “Project Pet Slim Down” initiative and certifies in-clinic coaches to provide specialized nutrition expertise and weight counseling for pet owners with overweight pets.
