What is obesity?
Obesity is a nutritional disease that can have a detrimental impact on your pet’s health. It can take up to two years off your pet’s life. Obesity is defined by an excess of body fat. When pets are overfed, lack exercise or have a tendency to retain weight, they are at most risk of being obese. Obesity can affect multiple areas of the body, including bones and joints, the digestive organs, and the organs responsible for breathing. Obesity occurs most often in middle-aged, neutered and indoors pets.
