Alarming Pet Obesity Facts
We started SlimDoggy about 18 months ago with the mission to raise awareness to the growing problem of pet obesity. The statistics on pet obesity are staggering. Over 53% of dogs and 57% of cats are overweight. We talk a lot about exercise and how it improves your dogs quality of life, and their life span but it is also essential in warding off obesity.
But more critical is what you put inside your dog, what food AND treats you feed them. You don’t have to feed raw food, you don’t have to feed expensive food, you just need to read the label and feed the best food you can afford. One of the reasons we created our food database was to make it easier for you to find the right food. You can use the database to search for ingredients or to search for foods without certain ingredients. We added the food rating to help make it easier for you to determine whether the food is ‘good’ or not so good.
Please, make use of the database, tell your friends and neighbors there is a source for them to use to find the right food and let’s really make a dent in the pet obesity problem this year.
In this video we filmed for eHow, we review some of the more alarming statistics and health problems resulting from pet obesity:
