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 last in a three-part series looking at what happens once weight loss has been achieved. Maintenance of weight loss can be even harder than losing weight was, and clients require enhanced levels of input and support throughout. This session will explore how to help a client to maintain their dog’s weight in the long term. Multichoice questions will guide the discussion with answers and explanations given after each.

Skills covered:

  • Food selection post weight loss
  • Food quantities to maintain weight long term
  • Actions required if things change in the future

This CPD session is worth 60 minutes towards your RCVS requirements.  The course involves an introduction tutorial, further reading articles, and a video quiz with explanations.
