Weight management is the single most important thing that you can do for your pet’s health! Not enough exercise and too much food will cause your pet to gain weight. Excess weight can cause health problems, including arthritis as well as liver and heart disease. Overweight pets also face increased risk during surgery and also have an increased risk of developing diabetes.
The best way to tip the scales in your pet’s favor is by gradually decreasing their their food intake while increasing their activity level. Table scraps and treats should also be avoided. You may consider switching your pet over to a reduced calorie diet or cutback in the portion size of their regular food diet but it’s always good to check with your vet first!
