Dr. Ernie Ward of the Pet Obesity Foundation on the impact that obesity has on animal welfare. Dr. Ward will present a basic overview of the Five Freedoms of animal welfare as well as discuss definitions and concepts of what constitutes a “disease state” and whether pet obesity meets these criteria.

In addition, Dr. Ward will:
• Review current scientific evidence that obesity negatively affects quality-of-life in companion animals.
• Present the latest surveys on the attitudes and beliefs pet owners and veterinary professionals have on pet nutrition, pet diet and weight loss programs, raw and grain-free diets, and other current pet nutritional trends.
• Discuss basic strategies for weight loss and client communication for a variety of commonly encountered clinical scenarios.
