Overweight pets are all too common in the USA. In fact, a diagnosis of overweight or obese is consistently in the top 10 diagnoses at Banfield hospitals. These conditions are linked to numerous other diseases, including arthritis, diabetes, and heart disease, so maintaining a healthy weight is a critical component to your pet's care.
