" Overweight pets are at risk for: breathing problems, osteoarthritis and poor joints, heart and respiratory disease, kidney disease, diabetes, and cancer". The immune system is affected by cats who are overweight . The metabolism in dogs who are overweight is slow.
A recent survey shows that over 50 percent of America's pets are overweight or obese. Pet owners can overfeed their pets by as much as 25% a day.
What can help? A healthy diet, portion control, treat control, daily walks and exercise. (I don't mean just a potty walk!)
The end result? Healthier, happier pets with a longer life.
