Pet obesity is a complex disease to manage and although many strategies are common to all cases, each individual case will have a unique set of considerations. This case study will describe a real case of obesity in a dog named Poppy.

This is the second in a three-part series looking at the follow up appointment. Weight loss rarely runs smoothly so the session will identify key concerns and discuss methods for helping her owner overcome difficulties. Multichoice questions will guide the discussion with answers and explanations given after each.

Skills covered:

  • Treat management
  • Food seeking behaviour control
  • Calculations associated with safe weight loss
