Today is #NationalPetObesityAwarenessDay. More than 50% of the pets in the U.S. are overweight!
If you suspect that your pet may be a “little fluffy,” it’s a good idea to start monitoring what they are eating – food, treats, snacks, chews, table scraps, etc. Then consider starting a sensible weight loss program.
Here are some modifications to include:
- Monitor the K/cal per cup of kibble.
- Follow the “quality, not quantity” rule for treats.
- Remind the two-legged pack members not to share their food.
- Adding extra walk and play time each day.
