Ever run out of pet food and not know what to do?
While this seems like an obvious thing NOT to do, we've all had a close encounter of some kind, right?
I often see dogs and cats, who come in for a visit, for this very reason—because they're not feeling too well!
What do you think about your pet's weight? Be honest. Do you think that they're an appropriate weight? Do you think they're too thin? Too heavy?
Would it surprise you to learn that nearly 50 percent of the dogs, and nearly 60% of the cats in America are overweight or obese? This is according to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, and based upon the results of their 2009 National Pet Obesity Awareness Day Study. What is perhaps even sadder, and will make the problem that much more difficult to combat, is that many owners were mistaken about their own pet’s weight.
