  • Feeding Your Pet Fewer Treats, Could Save Its Life

    According to a recent study, more than half of the pets in the U.S. are overweight or obese:

    "From the initial dataset, 35% of dogs and 32.1% of cats were overweight and 20.6% of dogs and 21.6% of cats were obese. Overall, 55.6% of dogs and 53.7% of cats were either overweight or obese. 6.7% of cats were classified as “thin” or body condition score of 2. 5.2% of dogs were reported as BCS 2. No cats in the study were found to be “underweight” or BCS 1 while 0.26% of dogs were underweight."

    Sometimes, the kinder thing to do, may be to not sneak in that treat underneath the dinner table.
