Is Your Pet Obese?

It is past National Pet Obesity day, but let’s face it, if our pet is obese it is a year-round issue, right?

  1. Do you overfeed
  2. Offer snacks all day long
  3. Is your pet a couch potato?

If any of these are the case, I urge you to get up and get moving, feed the proper amount of food and don’t let them snack all day — these are great health hints for humans and our fur-babies alike.
