Bring Your Pet in for a Weight Check

Did you know…

  • 80 grams of tuna for a cat is equivalent to 3 1/2 burgers for a human
  • a 12 pound overweight Yorkie is the same as an average female weighing 218 pounds
  • a 14 pound overweight cat is equivalent to a 237 pound man
  • 1 ounce of cheese is the same as 3 donuts!

If you are concerned that your pet could be carrying around some extra weight, the time to call us is now.

We can answer the following questions for you:

How many calories and what should I feed my pet each day?

What kind of exercise is good for my pet?

Is my pet at risk for a medical problem due to excess weight?

How much weight should my pet lose in a month?

Pets that maintain a healthier weight enjoy more active, pain-free lifestyles; are less susceptible to a number of unpleasant medical conditions; tend to enjoy longer, happier and healthier lives. Most importantly, your pet cannot manage his or her weight without your help. If you’ve noticed your furry family member packing on a few too many pounds, the time to turn things around is now.
Let us help you get your pet back on track to a healthy, fit lifestyle once again.

We don’t always care about the number on the scale – let the veterinary professionals at Animal Medical Center of Marquette make a safe and healthy treatment plan for your pet!
