The number one nutritional problem in pets is obesity. Studies find that over half of all pets in the U.S. are overweight and almost 30% are actually obese.
Excess weight can contribute to MANY health problems including osteoarthritis, urinary tract disease, diabetes, asthma, congestive heart failure, liver disease and cruciate ligament rupture. Lack of exercise and over-nutrition are the most common causes of obesity.
We love to show our pets love by giving them extra treats and goodies. And it’s hard to resist increasing the amount we feed when they are staring at us and acting as if they are starving. But remember, you should be able to feel your pet’s ribs and there should be a natural “tuck” at their waist when you look at them from the side. So instead of loving them with more food, please love them with some extra attention and exercise instead. They will enjoy it just as much and will live longer too!
