The Obesity Epidemic
over half the canine population is obese. and recent studies show pet owners can NOT asses whether their dog is at a truly healthy weight - even with access to body condition charts.
EXCESS FAT AFFECTS
Excess waste overworks the kidneys, and structural changes to this organ can happen only weeks after rapid weight gain
even moderately overweight dogs have life expectancies reduced by 2 YEARS. normal body functions are harder and more taxing.
aside from having generally less healthy skin and coat, overweight dogs are less likely to groom themselves properly
obesity impacts lung function, making it harder to breathe. the heart tries to compensate and works even harder during normal activity
increased weight, especially rapid increases, puts abnormal pressure on joints, which can cause inflammation and deformations.
DETERMINING YOUR DOG'S WEIGHT
COMMON RESPONSES IN KIBBLE-FED DOGS:
"I FOLLOW THE FEEDING GUIDE ON THE BAG"
Kibble labels can be misleading and downright confusing. Though you're feeding the suggested serving size, you might be feeding too high fat content for your particular dog.
"I'LL JUST FEED MY DOG LESS."
The amount of food you give your dog may not be the only factor affecting his weight. If he's not getting enough exercise, simply feeding him less may deprive him of important nutrients.
"I'LL SWITCH TO A WEIGHT-MANAGEMENT DIET.
Prescription diets may seem like a good short-term option, but they can sometimes offer too many calories and not enough nutrients for long-term feeding.
