When pets become overweight, their health may be at risk and they may even become depressed. The greater an animal's caloric intake over the course of his life, the shorter that life span will be.
There are many reasons why pets become obese but the two main reasons are: Eating too much and not getting exercise enough. If your pets are packing extra weight that amounts to more than 15 percent over ideal body weight, then your dog is clinically obese and there will be health risks to consider. Help your pets stay healthy by giving them low calorie treats and nutritional supplements.
