Obesity seems to continue to grow in veterinary practices (no pun intended).
Nationwide pet insurance reported an uptick in claims for obesity-related conditions in 2016. More than 1.3 million claims for more than $60 million amounted to a 23 percent growth over three years.
Here are the top 10 obesity-related conditions that accounted for those claims:
- Cystitis/Urinary tract disease
- Cruciate ligament injuries
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Chronic renal disease
- Congestive heart failure
