  • Pet Obesity

    Pet obesity is a growing problem. In the United States over half of all household dogs and cats are overweight or obese. That is a whopping 43.8 million dogs and 55 million cats! According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention pet owners who agreed to have their pets assessed for the study were first asked to classify their pets’ weight. Among all pets that veterinarians ultimately classified as obese, 93 percent of dog owners and 88 percent of cat owners initially thought their pet was in the normal weight range. This disparity is the cause of why America has so many overweight and obese pets.
