If you don’t have a pet but are planning to have one, know that they suffer from lifestyle wellness issues just like us. Many of us have struggled with the weight issues of our pet. If you intend to get your family a canine, know that some breeds are more prone to weight problems than others:
Laborador – The most popular breed found at home with us is quick to out on weight. They have increased risk for arthritis, hip dysplasia and other obesity-related diseases. Go easy on those treats.
Golden Retriever – They have a big appetite and if it is not worked out, it will lead to weight gain. They also may suffer from hypothyroidism that can lead to weight gain.
Boxer – They tend to suffer from thyroid issues, too. They also may have breathing problems that might be exacerbated if they are not exercised well.
