Your pet’s weight is one of the most influential factors of longevity, quality of life, and disease prevention.
HOW CAN YOU KNOW WHETHER YOUR DOG OR CAT IS OVERWEIGHT OR OBESE?
First, you should be able to easily feel – and count – your dog’s ribs when you lightly run your fingers across the side.
Next, when you look down on your pet from above, you should see an hourglass figure or an indentation near the midsection. If your pet looks like a blimp from above, it’s packing some extra weight!
Finally, when you look at your pet from the side as it stands, you should see a slight tuck or upward slope of the tummy. If the abdomen hangs low and drags near the ground, that is also a sign that your pet may be overweight!
