Did your cat swallow the canary?  Or maybe the kitchen sink?
Does your dog gain the "freshman fifteen" every winter?
Help your pet to live a longer, happier, HEALTHIER life by helping them to lose weight!!

We know that many of our clients have diligently tried to get their pets to lose those extra pounds.  You've walked your dog for miles, endured your cat's angry "cat"erwauling when you put just a few kibbles in their bowl.  You've tried this weight loss diet, that reduced calorie diet, high protein diets, high fiber diets, low calorie diets.  The list goes on, and on, and on!


Hill's Prescription Diet has come out with a new Metabolic Diet to help with the fight against obesity in our furry friends.  They have done years of research with a plethora of natural ingredients to design a diet that activates your pets' ability to burn away excess fat and more effectively utilize their calories.  This diet uses NATURAL ingredients to change the way your pet metabolizes their food every day.

To celebrate the new Metabolic Diet, we are starting our Biggest Loser for Pets Contest on October 1, 2013.  The contest is open to patients of Shaver Road Animal Hospital.  Not a current patient but would like to be?  Set up an appointment with Dr. Bowles for an initial visit and we can enroll your pet into the contest at the same time.

The initial appointment for current patients is complimentary.  At this appointment, your pet will be measured, pictures will be taken, and you will receive a comprehensive diet plan including the amount of weight that should be lost, the amount of food (and treats!) to be fed, and how long it will take for your pet to reach their goal.  We promise, no starvation is required!  There have been great results (and minimal complaints) when switching to this new food even without exercise!  If you want to win, exercise will, of course, give your pet "four legs up" on the competition!

The current contest will be open for registration from October 1 thru October 31, 2013.  The contest will end on February 1, 2014.  We will encourage monthly weigh-ins for your pet so we can continue to provide moral support!  As a reward for weighing in, we will put your pet's name in a lottery to win free food every month! 

The grand prize for our biggest cat loser and our biggest dog loser (based on percent of body weight lost) includes:
-  3 months of free food courtesy of Hill's Prescription Diets
-  a "spa" day at Shaver Road Animal Hospital
-  a gift basket of fun prizes

If you want to be our big winner by having your pet become our biggest loser, call or e-mail to set up your complimentary registration appointment today!  The earlier you register, the better your chance to WIN!!!
