Calling all porky pets – Petfit Program

Wilston Vet has launched a “PetFit” program in conjunction with Hills Pet Foods to encourage pet owners to slim down their tubby feline and canine companions.

We are running a competition to find the “Pet Slimmer of the Year” who will win $2000 worth of travel vouchers (for their owners) and one year’s supply of Hills Pet Food. You just need to register your Porky Pet with our nurse Kelly, who will guide you through a nutrition and exercise regime to shed your pet’s excess kilos.

REGISTRATION IS FREE and includes an initial nurse health consultation, regular weigh-ins, plus a food and exercise program tailored to your individual pets needs.

With over 40% of Australian pets considered overweight or obese, this is an opportunity to slim down your pudgy pet back to a healthy weight. Overweight pets are at a higher risk of many harmful conditions including heart disease, fatty liver disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, and arthritis, to name just a few. Owners are often unaware just how bad snacks can be for their pets. Did you know that giving your cat 1 cup of milk is the equivalent of giving yourself 4 hamburgers?

Call Kelly at Wilston Vet on 3357 3882 to arrange a free weight consultation and visit our website for more information or the “PetFit” website at
Let us encourage and motivate you to allow your pet to lead a happier healthier life
