Is Pet Obesity Really a Problem?
About 54% of dogs and 58% of cats in the United States are overweight or obese, according to a 2015 survey from the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP). We see a direct link every day in our patients of being overweight and leading to avoidable health issues such as:
- Joint pain and early onset arthritis
- High Blood Pressure
- Stress on the heart leading to early or worsening heart disease
- Breathing issues, increased snoring, difficulty breathing
- Ligament rupture (aka ACL in humans) in their knees ****one of the most common ones!***
- Fatty liver syndrome
- Urinary issues in cats
