Speaker: Dr. Iveta Becvarova

Brought to you by Hill’s Pet Nutrition

Watch this on-demand Web conference to gain new insights into nutrition solutions for obese pets.

Obesity-related comorbidities in dogs and cats are multiple and affect nearly every organ system. Without effective weight loss to correct the underlying detrimental effects of excessive adiposity, the pet, owner, and veterinary health care team become engaged in a frustrating, vicious cycle. This seminar will focus on the relationship between obesity and gene expression, mobility issues, lower urinary tract signs, diabetes mellitus, and the longevity and quality of life. Positive effects of weight loss on overall health and effective weight management guidelines will also be discussed.
