Examples Of Seriously Overweight Pets
We have covered the topic of overweight pets quite a lot lately. This is because it is becoming a big problem. Pet obesity numbers appear to be on the rise. According to the PDSA, a charity for pets in need of vets, ‘around 2.5 million dogs (one in three) and over 2 million cats (one in four) are currently estimated to be overweight.’
Some pets are shockingly overweight, yet their owners don’t seem to realise. Being overweight will make your pet uncomfortable, cause a wide range of health issues and worst of all, reduce their lifespan. Overweight pets have a very poor quality of life. It’s harder for them to get around, they become short of breath and may have digestive problems.
