Annual surveys and reports indicate that the as the average American expands so do their kids and their pets. Despite a stable population, America is growing! And not in a good way! We are literally eating ourselves to death. In a nation of plenty, overnutrition is the most common nutritional disease diagnosed in pets today. Unfortunately, most Americans don't recognize it in their own pets. And sadly, when it is recognized, it is often laughed off as the pet parents tell me eating is the highlight of their dog's day. What a sad turn of events that many pet parents wait until their dog suffers a painful injury such as a torn cruciate ligament or back pain before they even consider doing anything to help their dog. Why must we wait until a loved one experiences pain and suffering before stepping up to help?
If your dog carries even a few extra pounds (can you see your dog's ribs? If you can't make out the edges then he likely carries an extra pound or two) he is at risk for medical concerns and a shortened life span. Did I mention the fact that there is often pain associated with these medical issues too? Even your dog doesn't die young, his quality of life will be affected. Don't wait another day!
