Overweight Cat Help

The team at Waterview Animal Hospital can help guide you in the right direction when it comes to your pet’s weight. We have trained team members that can work with you to improve your cat’s health and add years to their life.

How do I know if my cat is overweight?


Just like dogs, we use a body conditioning score to determine if your cat is at its ideal weight. Anything from a 5/9 – 9/9 would be considered overweight. If you think your car may be overweight, call us at 506-622-2355 for an apt with a veterinarian for a health exam.

How can I help my cat lose weight?


We can provide you with a program called “slim fit” that can help your cat get weight off by feeding a prescription weight diet and calculating the exact amount of calories needed to lose weight. Please call us at (506)622-2355 if you feel your cat could use a weight loss program or would like further information.

What is offered during a nutritional consultation?


In a nutritional consultation, the doctor or technician will determine your cats body condition score, proper weight, and determine what diet is best suited for your pet. They will also help you with feeding guidelines, and how much of the new diet you should be feeding your pet to achieve the proper weight loss.

Dear Clients,

As a result of New Brunswick's plan to enter Level 2 of COVID-19 restrictions, we will proceed with the following protocol, effective immediately, until restrictions have been lifted.

We will be moving back to a curbside “Closed Waiting Room” policy, which means no clients will be permitted in the building, with exceptions. However, we will continue to offer FULL veterinary services.

If you have been contacted by Public Health or are showing symptoms of the virus, we ask that you call us to reschedule your appointment.

Procedure for surgeries and general appointments:

1. Call us at 622-2355 when you arrive in the parking lot. We will proceed in checking you in remotely.

2. When the Dr is ready to see your pet we will call your cell phone or wave at your vehicle and have you bring your pet to the main door. Please wear a mask when approaching the hospital to pass your pet to us.

3. A veterinarian will perform an examination or requested procedure inside the hospital while you wait in your vehicle, or a drop off appointment can be arranged.

4. Once the care of your animal is complete, the veterinarian will call you with their findings and devise a treatment plan.

5. Payment will be taken over the phone or in the parking lot via a portable debit machine. We are trying to limit cash use to a minimum.

6. Food and medications pick up will be curbside and payment can be accepted via e-transfer or credit card over the phone.

We are OPEN with the following hours:

- Monday and Thursday: 8:00am - 7:00pm
- Tuesday and Wednesday: 8:00am - 5:30pm
- Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
- Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

- Your dedicated team at Waterview Animal Hospital
