This article gives a short overview of the management of obesity in dogs and tells you more about the recent introduction of anti-obesity drugs. It is the authors’ opinion that no weight control programme in a veterinary practice can succeed without the active help of veterinary nurses. This article will help you understand the important principles underlying such a programme and answer some questions about setting up such a programme in a practice.
