Obesity

  • PDF

Is your pet “pleasingly plump” or approaching obesity? 

Obesity is an increase in body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements.  Animals with an accumulation of body fat of more than 20% of their moderate body weight for that species and breed are considered obese.

Obesity shortens your pet’s life expectancy:

Some obese animals may be at increased risk for diabetes, joint problems, muscle tears, hip dysplasia, tracheal collapse, skin and heart disorders, complications during anesthesia and surgery, and reduced life expectancy.
