Healthy Weight Clinic

(previously Pet Obesity Clinic)

Concerned your pet might be overweight? The Healthy Weight Clinic may be the answer to jump-start your pet's weight loss journey!

Enrollment in the healthy weight clinic lasts for six months beginning at the date of your initial consultation. Throughout the duration of the six month enrollment your pet will have regular veterinary consults/weigh-ins with our clinical nutrition intern. These rechecks will occur on average every 2 – 4 weeks depending upon rates of weight loss. The program has a one-time enrollment fee of $105 to be paid at the initial consultation. Each of the weigh-in appointments and ALL weight loss food provided by the VHC and Hill’s Pet Nutrition are FREE of charge for the full six months that your pet participates in the clinic!

The Veterinary Health Center’s primary care/clinical nutrition intern, Dr. Gabrielle Rands will oversee all patients enrolled in the program. In addition, she will consult with two American College of Veterinary Nutrition board-certified clinical nutritionists from Hill’s Pet Nutrition, who are also adjunct faculty with the Department of Clinical Sciences. The goal is to ensure that each patient is receiving a customized diet plan that is best suited for that individual animal to obtain optimal results.

Dr. Rands is excited to help your pet begin a journey to a happier and healthier lifestyle! If you are interested in scheduling an initial consultation or have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
