National Pet Obesity Awareness Day
Pet obesity is a growing concern for pet parents around the globe. According to some studies, over half of all dogs are overweight. We love our dogs so much, that we can sometimes unknowingly be hurting their health and well being by overfeeding them.
Do you know how to tell if your dog is overweight? First, look at your dog from above while they are standing. Can you see a clearly defined waist? If not, your dog may be overweight.
Second, can you feel his ribs when you pet his side? You should be able to feel the ribs, not see them, but feel them when you pet and touch their side.
October 8th is National Pet Obesity Awareness Day. Check out this website for more information:
You can download several helpful PDF's from the above site. For example, they have a chart of how many calories are in common dry and wet dog foods so you can properly monitor how much you are giving your dog.
The first full week in October is also National Walk Your Dog Week. Extra walks that are brisk and approximately 20 minutes or more can help your dog (and you) lose a couple unwanted pounds. Read more about the health benefits of walking on their website:
Remember, food is not love. We show our dogs how much we love them by caring for them physically, mentally and emotionally. Please love your dog with extra hugs, special toys and long walks ... and an occasional healthy homemade dog treat. :)
