By removing organs that produce hormones your pet's metabolism is likely to slow down. This means less food is required to maintain the same body weight. If your pet has recently been desexed it is very likely you will need to decrease the amount of food your pet is receiving and maintain a healthy exercise regime.
Our pet healthcare team can provide you with a nutritional plan for your dog to ensure they are receiving the right type and quantity of food which varies with a dog's breed, lifestyle, age and weight. Contact us for further information.
Service dogs such as Guide Dogs and Police Dogs are all routinely desexed and they provide a perfect example of how feeding a well balanced diet and maintaining body condition in a desexed dog is possible.
