Your Dog/Cat May Be Obese!


Uh oh. Did you know that 61% of cats and as many as ONE in THREE canine veterianry patients are disgnosed as Obese? Obesity among our companions is as epidemic as it is for humans! And just as is true for us, overwight animals develop more health problems, including decreased mobility, diabetes, hypothyroidism, osteoarthritis, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, difficulty breathing, as well as difficulty grooming, increased risk of hyperthermia, increased risk of cancer, shorter lifespans.


They should look like this:

What to Do Right Away?


If you suspect or know that your beloved companion is overweight and/or obese, you need to get on this asap.


  1. Consult with an animal communicator (I'm here for you!) to find out if your animal is ready to make changes in their diet and lifestyle. Having a session will help them understand why their routine and diet are changing and help you both cooperate for long-term success. I'll help you transition your companion to an affordable wholesome diet that will help them lose weight, increase nutrient absorption, detox and improve digestion, immune systems, joints, organs, everything!

  2. Get a referal from me or another trusted communicator and/or friend to a holistic vet who will be on board with a species appropriate, whole food meal plan, not a "prescrition diet" which have inferior nutrition and can lead to other problems while addressing weight loss. Your holistic vet may also do some testing to be sure there aren't underlying problems that have caused the weight gain. But sometimes that's a "chicken and the egg" situation. Which came first, the weight or the above mentioned problem(s). Your vet may need to address those while helping your dog or cat lose the weight.

  3. Depending on the level of obesity, changes must be made slowly to not stress your animal's organs and make them feel deprived and "starving," which causes more stress.

  4. Increase playtime, especially before meals as this triggers their hunting instincts and their digestive systems will expect food and will actually improve digestion and absorption. A carnivore is designed to rest after eating, not before.


When you keep your beloved fit and trim, you support them to more successfully achieve what they came into your life to be -- teacher, healer, student, Bringer of Pure Joy... Don't let bad health from poor diet and exercise habits keep them from living their best lives!



with Love, Your Voice of Animals,
