Operation TransPAWmation – Member’s Area
Congratulations on taking the first step to ensuring your pet’s weight is maintained to ensure a longer, healthier life!
Obesity in our pets is a growing epidemic in Ireland. Classified as disease, obesity can lead to further health complications like cardio-respiratory problems, diabetes and arthritis. It may also limit a pet’s ability and will reduce you pet’s life expectancy.
If your dog or cat becomes obese, long-term veterinary care and supervision will be needed to reduce weight and manage ancillary illness.
At Petmania, we are committed to helping pet owners, like you, manage their pet’s diet throughout their life-stages. Once a week, for the next eight weeks, we will send you an email with help and advice on the next steps on your pet’s journey to a sustainable and healthy body condition score.
Follow the links below to find our online toolkit for helping you to assess and manage your dog or cat’s weight.
Know Your Pet’s Score!
The Body Condition Score is a 0-9 scale that allows you to monitor your dog or cat’s body condition to determine whether or not she is at a healthy size and weight. Veterinarian Carol Doyle shows you how to check your dog or cat‘s BCS at home in these videos.
