Obesity

Overweight and obesity are occurring in epidemic proportions in our pets. In the past five years, diagnoses have increased 30% in dogs and 111% in cats. The conditions are linked to numerous other diseases, including arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease, so maintaining a healthy weight is about more than just keeping a slender waistline – it’s about living a healthier life!
