Every day we are surrounded by images and reports telling us that Americans are overweight. We are reminded constantly about the health benefits of weight loss. But did you know that obesity is also an epidemic among the furry members of our families as well? It is estimated that over 58% of cats and 54% of dogs in the United States are overweight or obese!
We are the only ones responsible for what we eat and how much we exercise, however for our pets WE control what and how much our pets eat and exercise. Until they learn how to open the fridge door (and before I get all the comments I bet there are a few smart dogs out there that can open the door) we are the only ones responsible for our pet’s health and potential obesity.
