According to a recent APOP National Pet Obesity Awareness Day Study just over half of all cats and dogs in US households are either overweight or obese, “… approximately 53% of cats and 55% of dogs were overweight or obese. Preliminary data released from a nationwide collaboration with Banfield, the nation’s largest chain of veterinary clinics, reveals pet obesity continues to be a serious problem.”
What Can You Do?
There’s a joke that goes, “If your dog is fat, you’re not getting enough exercise.” Yeah, it USED to be funny.
In addition to daily exercise, your pet’s diet is of utmost importance.
And don’t forget to give them a safe and effective probiotic for dogs and cats like Geneflora for Pets!
