• How do I know if my dog and cat are at ideal weights?

    The ideal weight for a pet can depend on the breed and size of the individual pet. The best way to judge if your dog is at his ideal weight is to use body condition score. Our State of Pet Health Report describes the body condition score and shows you how to perform this.
