The Slender Bender Pet Nutrition Programme was developed to help families learn about pet nutrition. This is because scientific research shows that extra weight on our pets can reduce play time, impact their movement and affect their lifespan and health.
Our background into pet nutrition has evolved over the years as people have come to the hospital for assistance with chronic conditions such as diabetics, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular and respiratory disease. Many of these have been partially attributed to many factors including weight. Sadly, it is known that overweight pets have a shorter life expectancy than average.
This one on one programme has been developed to assist families in learning about healthier eating for their pet and understanding how to build healthy habits. Weekly guidance and regular contact is provided to ensure everyone stays on track.
