A Few Extra Pounds Can Mean Major Risk For Your Pet
Overweight pets are at risk of health issues including diabetes, arthritis, cancer and high blood pressure — as well as being too tired and run down to enjoy every day to the fullest. If you’re afraid your pet is overweight, the good news is you can start helping them today.
Simple Steps For Slimming Down
- Keep Tabs On Treats - Extra treats and human food can lead to extra pounds. Just 1 oz of cheese is a whole meal's calories.
- Get Your Move On - Turn exercise into some fun together time. Take your pet for walks or play a game of fetch.
- Treats Don't Have To Be Food - Instead of more snacks, spoil your pet with a new toy or extra playtime, snuggles, and games.
