We all know that being overweight is bad for our health, and it’s just as detrimental to our four-legged friends. It can lead to diabetes, respiratory issues, heart disease and cancer, not to mention the extra pressure your pet’s bones and joints will have to endure, all of which can result in reduced life expectancy and general discomfort. Isn’t it time you did something about it?
Luckily there are plenty of pet food ranges that have been specifically designed for the overweight pet, so it needn’t be that difficult to source the food that meets your dog’s requirements. These foods have been formulated with natural ingredients in a calorie-controlled way, utilising the latest weight management research to give your pet proper nutrition whilst making sure he doesn’t overeat or go hungry—the ideal combination.
You might want to lavish your pet with food and treats, but it can be much kinder to put him on a diet plan instead. In fact, keeping your dog in the ideal weight range can add as much as 2 years to his life expectancy, giving you a lot more quality time together. Investing in suitable food, either seeing what you can find in a pet shop or (ideally) heading to your vet for a prescription plan, can be a much kinder solution, so if your dog’s in need of a diet plan don’t leave it too late—seek the right food now and you can transform his health and his life for the better.
