Help Your Pet Lighten Up
Many of us have struggled with our weight at one time or another, but we aren’t the only ones facing this problem —our four-legged friends are also battling the bulge. Obesity is the most common disease afflicting our pets. Excess weight can reduce the length of a pets’ life by as much as 20% — in humans this would be the equivalent of 15 years!
For your pet to lose weight, you must reduce the number of calories he eats while increasing energy output. By following a supervised program of calorie control and moderate exercise, you can help your dog or cat to lose weight steadily and safely.
