Pet obesity is on the rise and it’s a legitimate thing to be concerned about.
An overweight pet can have a multitude of issues, just like people and maybe even more due to their small body frame. Too much calories in and too little exercise can lower their life span and with certainty make their quality of life much lower.
Pets eat as much as you give them and it’s up to you, as the parent of the pet to make sure they’re eating healthy, proper amounts and exercises on a regular basis. And just to be clear, I’m not talking about a fluffy or a husky pet who’s just more cuddly and pleasant to look at, I am talking about legitimate pet obesity which has serious repercussions on their lives.
Pets, like people, need to have a quality life and that means that the pet should be provided proper emotional affection, physical affection AND proper meal nourishment. All things are equally important.
