Weight Management for Pets
Have you ever considered making your pet's weight management part of your New Year’s Resolution?!
Many people don’t realize that their pet is overweight. Not to mention, your pet being as little as 20% overweight can increase their risk of diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.
If you think your pet may be overweight you can check if your pet has an obvious waistline, difficulty moving or a shortness of breath.
The primary causes of weight gain include a lack of exercise and diet; although, health issues can also be a contributing factor.
Weight also varies by size and breed. Your veterinarian can tell you your pet's ideal weight and help your pet maintain a healthy weight.
