An in-clinic coach is now 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, arthritis and an earlier death.
