Weight Management


Just getting weight off of painful joints is a big first step. At North Scottsdale Animal Hospital, we will help you plan a step by step diet. We provide support all along the way with periodic weight checks and suggestions to improve results. Companies such as Hill's Presciption Diet and Royal Canin Veterinary Diet have food options that help promote weight management as well as weight loss. 


Exercise is crucial for arthritic dogs but should be low impact to avoid further stress on damaged joints. examples of low impact exercises are:

  • Leash walking and mild controlled jogging

  • Swimming
