Overweight in dogs, obesity

Did you know that over 30 percent of pets are obese? If your dog is overweight, he is at risk for diseases such as painful arthritis, heart disease, shortness of breath, diabetes, and even bladder cancer. In addition, obese dogs are terribly lazy and prone to depression.

How can you determine if your dog is overweight? Run a hand across the back and chest of the dog, if you do not feel its bones – your dog is obese.

The most common causes of weight gain in dogs:
Overfeeding – a dog with unlimited access to food will eat much more than necessary
Overeating – many commercial foods are saturated with salt and fat to improve the taste, which means your dog will want to eat more
Features of nutrition – feeding leftovers from a human table can also lead to obesity
Inadequate physical activity – too much food, and too few exercises will lead to the typical result: obesity
Age – older, less active dogs are more likely to gain weight
Sex – a bitch is more likely to become overweight
Sterilization – sterilized or neutered dogs are twice as likely to become obese due to a less mobile lifestyle
A very important role in the treatment of overweight dogs plays nutrition. Along with exercise, low-calorie and low-fat food is essential for your dog to lose weight and stay fit.

Once your dog is already overweight, she may be more likely to gain weight.
You must have an ongoing plan to manage your dog’s weight based on proper nutrition, exercise, and regular examinations and weighings. For an accurate diagnosis and treatment methods, always consult your veterinarian.
