Obesity Diet Dog Food
Dog obesity is a somewhat controversial and sensitive subject. No one likes to be told their dog is obese. Overweight is bad enough. But the thought of having an obese dog is for many pet parents simply beyond the pale. And yet the fact is, an estimated 60% of UK dogs is overweight or obese. And it’s a sad fact that being obese can shorten a dog’s life considerably. By as much as 20% in some cases, which is a simply shocking statistic. Especially when it is so unnecessary!
Canine obesity is the most common nutritional disorder in dogs. It is also the most easily remedied. Improve the quality of your dog’s diet at the same time as reducing calorie consumption. Provide better nutrition and ensure that the number of calories your dog burns is more than he or she consumes on a daily basis. It sounds simple and it is.

High blood pressure, kidney disease and hormone disorders such as hypothyroidism. Intolerance to exercise. Intolerance to heat. Increased risk of anaesthetic and surgical complications. Skin disease, cancer and urinary problems. All can be created or made worse by canine obesity. And all those without mentioning that canine obesity could take years off the life of your best friend.
