The Management of Pet Obesity
Victoria Bowes, Helen Coleman
The management of a pet's weight and nutritional guidance is often the responsibility of the vet nurse in veterinary practice. The Management of Pet Obesity provides the vet nurse with the information needed on obesity-related topics for small animals, exotic animals and pet birds. The causes and incidence of obesity are covered, along with nutritional requirements of a range of animals, body condition scoring and assessment, co-morbidities such as diabetes, and an independent overview of feeding options, and species-specific guidance. The Management of Pet Obesity is ideal for veterinary nurses, student veterinary nurses and animal nutritionists who approach the complex topic of pet obesity.
