Pet Obesity Makes the News Again

On Monday, WKMG local channel 6 aired a story on the obesity epidemic facing our nation’s pets. The latest statistics show that 54% of all dogs and cats are either overweight or obese. When pets are overweight, problems like heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, joint issues, and more can surface. By having an overweight pet, not only will you end up spending a lot more money in unnecessary medical bills, but you can shorten your dog’s life span by an average of two years!

We were pleased to be asked to be a part of this news story, since one of our main focuses is to help dogs who are overweight trim down and restore their health. Our passion is to help people help their dogs live as long as possible with the best quality of life possible. If you would like to view the news story, click here
