Weight Loss Guidance

Working as a team with your regular veterinarian, we can devise a safe weight loss program that can include a calorie-restriction plan, advice on appropriate treats and rewards for your pet, an exercise program either in-house or home-based, weigh-ins as needed, and lots of support and encouragement. Just as with humans, overweight pets are at risk to develop serious illnesses and die at a younger age than those pets that are at optimal weight. With added weight pets are also more likely to develop painful arthritis which leads to less mobility and a decrease in ability to do the things they love. A comprehensive weight-management program can significantly decrease pain in these pets and increase their quality of life as well as yours.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "Monte-
    Pat and Shawna have had a tremendous impact on our dog Monte's recovery and quality of life. Monte ruptured a vertebral disc in his neck and lost significant use of his hind legs. Since surgery, Pat has performed physical therapy and Shawna has performed acupuncture. Monte is now walking and running and appears to be pain free. Monte responds very well to Pat's underwater treadmill treatment and to Shawna's acupuncture sessions. Just as important, Monte has bonded with both Pat and Shawna. We are convinced that Monte's continuing progress is best left in Pat's and Shawna's hands. We don't like to think what Monte's quality of life would be like without their excellent care."

  • "Bruno-
    Bruno, our 12 year old German Shepherd, suffered a FCE on November 23, 2008. Although he had managed with slow progressing Degenerative Myelopathy, this incident nearly paralyzed him. The vets could not offer much hope for a recovery, stating that there would probably be no real improvement after the first two weeks. We were fortunate to find Pat Werner with her skill, caring, and experience. After beginning a series of physical therapy sessions, including the underwater treadmill, Bruno showed marked improvement. He steadily gained strength and coordination. Pat suggested we have Shawna evaluate Bruno as a candidate for acupuncture... Bruno's physical therapy and acupuncture not only restored his mobility, it made him really happy. He truly looked forward to working with Pat in the tank and then relaxing with Shawna for acupuncture. We credit and thank Pat and Shawna for the life they returned to our friend."

  • "Bosco-
    Pat and Shawna are two of the most compassionate and knowledgeable people we know. When our German Shepherd, Bosco, was diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy, a progressively debilitating disease, through physical therapy and acupuncture, we are convinced Pat and Shawna were able to slow down the progression to give Bosco more quality time to spend with his two sisters and to give him a better quality of life. Now we have our Rottweiler, Maggie, in physical therapy and acupuncture due to bone cancer which led to an amputation of her back leg. Through physical therapy and acupuncture, Maggie is learning to walk again pain free. We would recommend Utah Pet Rehab to anyone!"
