True to HEAL Veterinary Hospital's mission, Dr. Brittney Barton contributes her time and experience to help educate and advocate for our beloved pets. Tips on How to Keep Your Pet Cool from Dr. Brittney Barton The Kids Doctor- Dog Bites Pet Project: Smart ways to help your pets weather severe storms Prior to opening HEAL Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Barton worked at East Lake where she also offered helpful insight:

Veterinarian Brittney Barton of HEAL Veterinary Hospital in Dallas met the now eight-year-old orange tabby in 2012, when Skinny was surrendered to an animal shelter weighing more than 41 pounds.
At that time, Barton worked at East Lake Veterinary Hospital, and she volunteered to oversee Skinny's care, aiming to help him lose weight and trust people again. To kickstart Skinny's transformation, Barton first limited his calories. Instead of allowing him unrestricted access to a bowl of food, Barton fed him twice a day, utilizing the recommended portions for his size. Barton says the way many people feed cats is problematic, as we incorrectly think all cats are good at self-regulating their consumption. "We assume they'll just eat until they're full and then they'll be done," she says. "Half of them might, but the other half won't. In addition to putting Skinny on a diet and calculating his calories, Barton also had to get him moving more. Exercise, she says, is the most challenging part of weight loss for any cat owner, primarily because cats are so stubborn and independent. "That's where a lot of people hit up against some trouble," Barton says. Barton utilized treat balls and other games that required Skinny to "work" for his food. Moving his dish from place to place also ensured he'd get up and move around before mealtime. According to Barton, Skinny lost a tremendous amount of weight from the diet and moderate exercise alone, but he hit a plateau around 32 pounds. That's when Barton got creative. "Obviously not every cat is going to be amenable to walking on an underwater treadmill, but he was," Barton says. "There's kind of a beautiful thing when cats have a really strong affinity for food. You can leverage that and give them positive reinforcement for things they wouldn't like normally. Once we got him into his daily underwater treadmill sessions, he started dropping weight like crazy." Last May, Skinny hit his weight loss goal, officially dropping half his weight. Today, the cat weighs between 17 and 18 pounds - "and he looks great," Barton adds. She recalls the "landmark day" when Skinny, formerly unable to stand for more than a few minutes, was finally able to jump onto her couch. As he has regained his health, he has also become more affectionate, active - and crafty. Today, Skinny's name is no longer ironic. Today, Skinny's name is no longer ironic. "I'm constantly locking food up and trying to find out new places to put it, because he can jump higher and higher," Barton says. "When he was holding that weight, he was in one place and he hardly moved at all," Barton says.

Dr. Brittney Barton, a veterinarian at the East Lake Veterinary Hospital, has released a new children's book titled, "Piper and Pickle: Smile."
Barton resides in Preston Hollow and is married with two young boys and a stepdaughter. She hopes that the book will be a tool to get other families to talk about responsible pet ownership with their kids. "The ability to teach children about the wonderful relationship between animals and people in an engaging way is so important," says Barton.

Dr. Brittney Barton holds "Skinny" before he lost seven pounds at the East Lake Pet Orphanage.
He now weighs 34 pounds. Dr. Brittney Barton, of the East Lake Veterinary Hospital, said Friday that the orange tabby dubbed Skinny is doing well on a special diet to help lose weight and increase his metabolism. Barton says she became attached to the onetime 41-pound cat she was treating at the East Lake Pet Orphanage and last month he became part of her family. Skinny joins Barton's husband, three children, a dog and another cat at the residence. Barton says Skinny gets along great with the other animals, can jump up on a couch and runs to his food bag at feeding time. She says the house has long hallways that provide good exercise for Skinny.
