The sad truth is that most people can’t identify an overweight pet. Whenever their veterinarian tells them their pet needs to lose weight, they often can’t believe it because they don’t see it.
It is critical to understand that an overweight pet is not a healthy pet. In case you didn’t already know, here are some of the dangers an overweight pet can face…
- Diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes)
- Decreased liver function
- Damage to joints, bones, and ligaments.
- Digestive disorders
- Heart disease & increased blood pressure
- Decreased immune function
- Difficulty breathing.
- Skin and coat problems
- Decreased stamina
- Increased risk of cancer
- Heat intolerance
- Decreased quality and length of life
Now, the good news…
If your pet is overweight, it may require something as simple as a diet change… or an extra walk or two every week. In some cases, it may be something not as obvious. Either way, let’s put a plan together to ensure that your pet is getting the nutrition he needs, for a healthy, happy life. Remember… pets can’t make these decisions for themselves. They need someone who truly cares, and loves them. That’s YOU! The one and only person who can give them the happier, healthier, longer life they deserve.
