To take steps to help your companion maintain a healthy weight you must recognise the signs of their obesity. Signs include
- an increase in body mass
- an increased appetite
- difficulty exercising due to shortness of breath
- sluggish energy
- a decrease in the amount of activity they enjoy.
If you think your pet may be overweight, pay attention to how much food and treats you’re giving them each day. It might be time to re-evaluate their diet. Your vet can also help measure your pet’s body condition score (BCS) at any age if you’re unsure about their weight.
With proper attention and care, you can help keep your pet at a healthy weight – ensuring their long-term wellness.
