Knowing whether your Tripawd is fit or fat can make all the difference for their life on three legs. Tripawds can lose weight but they can't do it on their own. They need US to guide their diet and exercise routines.

This short and informative post by Dr. Nancy Kay explains how to find out your pet's body condition score.

What is Your Pet’s Body Condition Score?

During your pet’s annual physical examination, your veterinarian will ideally evaluate his or her Body Condition Score or (BCS). This is a visual and hands-on way of determining if your dog or cat is carrying the right amount of body fat and muscle. Assessment of BCS, in conjunction with body weight measurement, helps determine if your pet is too heavy, to lean, or just right. Measuring body weight alone doesn’t do this. For example, without a visual and hands-on determination of BCS, it would be impossible to know if a 70-pound Collie was under or overweight.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
