Biggest Health Threat To Your Dog

overweight dog albuquerqueYour dog is at risk!

There is a 53% chance your dog will be afflicted.

It is slowly killing pets every day.

It is an epidemic.

It is obesity.

Obesity in your dog can cause:

  • Hormonal diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Hypertension
  • ACL tears
  • Heart dieseas
  • Tumors
  • Overweight dogs are more prone to injury.

Most dog owners don’t see their dog’s as being fat. This is because most of us don’t recognize what our dog’s weight should be or should look like. Please consult your vet about your pet’s weight. They will get you on the proper diet and exercise plan to keep your dog in shape.

Did you know that your pet can gain weight after being spayed or neutered? This is because of changes in their hormones. You may need to adjust their diet and exercise after the surgery.

Keeping your dog in a healthy weight range not only helps them live a better quality of life but can help them live on average 2 years longer than overweight dogs.

The best way to determine if your dog is overweight is to bring them to your Albuquerque vet for an annual exam.
