The Obesity Epidemic

IN 2017, 56% OF DOGS WERE OVERWEIGHT or OBESE

Over half the canine population is obese. and recent studies show pet owners can NOT assess whether their dog is at a truly healthy weight - even with access to body condition charts.

Unhealthy weights can lead to

  • Disease Prevalence
  • Lifespan
  • Metabolic Function

EXCESS FAT AFFECTS

KIDNEYS

Excess waste overworks the kidneys, and structural changes to this organ can happen only weeks after rapid weight gain

LIFE EXPECTANCY

Even moderately overweight dogs have life expectancies reduced by 2 YEARS. Normal body functions are harder and more taxing.

SKIN

Aside from having generally less healthy skin and coat, overweight dogs are less likely to groom themselves properly

RESPIRATORY FUNCTION

Obesity impacts lung function, making it harder to breathe. The heart tries to compensate and works even harder during normal activity

MOBILITY

Increased weight, especially rapid increases, puts abnormal pressure on joints, which can cause inflammation and deformations.

COMMON RESPONSES IN KIBBLE-FED DOGS

"I FOLLOW THE FEEDING GUIDE ON THE BAG"

Kibble labels can be misleading and downright confusing. Though you're feeding the suggested serving size, you might be feeding too high fat content for your particular dog.

"I'LL JUST FEED LESS."

The amount of food you give your dog may not be the only factor affecting his weight. If he's not getting enough exercise, simply feeding him less may deprive him of important nutrients.

"I'LL SWITCH TO A WEIGHT-MANAGEMENT DIET.

Prescription diets may seem like a good short-term option, but they can sometimes offer too many calories and not enough nutrients for long-term feeding.
