Obesity in dogs is a serious issue. In speaking with several local vets, it is something they see too much of. Obesity in dogs causes so many issues - diabetes, joint issues, decreases longevity, and more.

Just like humans, it is calories in vs. calories out. Several steps you can take to help your dog shed a few pounds if needed is to:

~ watch their calorie intake

~ feed a high-quality, more protein, less carb based food (we can help you with that!)

~ cut treats in half (they don't care about the size of the biscuit, just the attention they receive when getting the biscuit!)

~ exercise! If you aren't able to walk with your dog, fetch is a great alternative (especially with a Chuck-It!)

~ join us for Get Fit With Fido on Tuesday nights in Rockland!

Happy, healthy pets is what we are all about and we can help you get there!
