Are you worried that your pet may be overweight? In developing a strategy to normalize your pet’s weight, it is best to work with a veterinarian. A visit to an animal hospital will allow for a thorough evaluation. Take a look at this video for more information.
As this video points out, the issue of animal obesity is not to be taken lightly. Overweight pets are at a higher risk for a number of degenerative medical conditions and have a shorter lifespan. A change in meal frequency and caloric intake will be needed to help your pet achieve a healthy weight. Exercise is equally as important. Progress will be gradual, and a long-term approach is best. A veterinarian can determine if your pet’s weight gain is related to an underlying medical issue.
