We love our canine friends, and sometimes the way we show it is through treats and food. But canine obesity can cause serious problems for your pet.
Here’s more information:
- The most common health problem related to canine obesity is diabetes. But obesity can also cause hypertension, damage to the joints and ligaments, respiratory problems, decreased liver function, heat intolerance, and other health issues. Any of these conditions pose the risk of a decreased quality of life and a shorter life span.
- If you suspect your dog is overweight, consult with your veterinarian before starting a weight loss and exercise program to rule out any underlying health problems that could cause weight gain.
Different breeds have different weight requirements, and your vet can help you determine the ideal weight for your dog. To prevent obesity, provide plenty of exercise, feed the correct formula and amount of food for your dog, and limit treats.
