Pet obesity is a growing issue which has affects over 60% of cats and dogs. It is caused by a combination of factors like overfeeding, lack of exercise, and certain medications. This can lead to serious health problems like Diabetes, Arthritis, and Heart diseases.
To help your pet lose weight, consult a veterinarian, quantify their food, invest in mental enrichment toys, understand their hunger cues and change their diet to a better diet high in protein and fiber. You could also keep track of their progress, avoid feeding them extra treats, help them slow down their eating speed. However, remember to be patient with them and ensure they stay hydrated. Most importantly, enjoy outdoor activities together!
A healthy weight means a longer and happier life for your furry friend.
