Pet Obesity

The majority of the nation’s dogs and cats continue to be overweight and most pet owners aren’t aware of the problem. The eighth annual National Pet Obesity Prevalence Survey conducted by Association for Pet Obesity Prevention found 58% of U.S. cats and 53% of dogs were overweight last year.

Through a combination of the proper diet and exercise, you can manage your pet's weight and help them live a healthier and longer life.
