Veterinary Services | Weight Loss | Weight Management
Capitol Illini offers weight loss and weight management services for dogs and cats with weight-related health problems. The goal of our healthy weight program is to help clients achieve a healthy weight for their pet. The most successful outcomes result from combining follow up (e.g. visits, weigh-ins, and phone consultations) and ongoing communication.
