Pet weight experts from Royal Canin and Royal Canin’s Weight Management Clinic at The University of Liverpool are hosting three webinars to help pet owners achieve a healthy weight for their cats and dogs. Each webinar will focus on a different aspect of pet weight management.
Whether your cat or dog has recently lost weight, gained weight, or you’re looking to make sure they stay as fit as possible, these webinars will help you to feel confident that you’re doing the right things to keep their weight healthy and stable. And a healthy weight for your cat or dog means a better quality of life and reduced risk of serious conditions associated with obesity.
The webinars will be presented by Georgia Woods RVN, CertCFVHNut, VTS (Nutrition) and Lindsay Calcraft, VN CertCFVHNut. Georgia is the clinic nurse at the Weight Management Clinic at the University of Liverpool Small Animal Teaching Hospital. She has been dealing exclusively with obese pets and nutrition for the past five years. Lindsay is Royal Canin’s Weight Management Specialist.
Georgia Woods, said, “Pet obesity is on the rise, and with over half of all cats and dogs in the UK thought to be above their ideal weight, this is one of the biggest challenges our pets now face. Being above their ideal weight reduces a pet’s quality of life and can shorten life span. The good news is, that through careful monitoring of weight or weight loss, if needed, we can preserve an excellent quality of life for all”.
