Pet Nutrition & Obesity
A healthy diet for your pet
The nutrition in the food we give our pets support every part of their bodies, allows them to grow and develop, and can even support management of many health conditions. Explore our expert nutrition advice, to keep your pets happy and healthy throughout their lives.
Body condition scoring for pets
Just like people, dogs, cats and rabbits come in all shapes and sizes, and weight alone is not a good measure to see if your pet is healthy. Body condition scoring is a system developed by vets to help you assess if your dog, cat or rabbit is the correct weight.
How being overweight affects your pet
Did you know overweight and obese pets are more susceptible to a range of associated medical conditions, including osteoarthritis and certain types of cancer? Obese pets typically have a lower quality of life and die younger than healthy-weight pets.
