Is Your Pet Overweight?

Pet obesity, is it a disease or a decision? Donna Solomon, a
veterinarian in the Animal Medical Center of Chicago, says, “Obesity in our
pets is a disease but it IS OUR decision.” 

Although your pet may and could be
suffering from medical situations, such as Hypothyroid, Hperadrenocorticism,
and/or orthopedic pain, most pet obesity is due to  excessive food consumption. It is up to the
owner, not the pet, to decide when it is time to eat or exercise.

 If you need
help figuring out a proper diet and exercise routine for your pet, simply talk to your veterinarian. 

It is up to you to help your pet fight against obesity!
