Preventing Pet Obesity

Maintaining a healthy weight is not only important for humans, but for our furry companions as well! Dogs and cats are just as susceptible to putting on excess pounds due to overeating, lack of exercise, or a combination of both. Understanding your pet’s dietary needs is the one of the first steps in preventing pet obesity. There are a number of pet food manufacturers that have specially formulated food based on your pet’s age, size, and breed.

Getting plenty of activity is also an important factor in keeping your pet’s weight within a healthy range. Your dog or cat will benefit both physically and emotionally with regular play time and exercise. Monitoring these factors can be easy with the right information and by keeping a daily feeding and activity log.
