A dog that is overweight, like humans, can have many problems. It is essential to keep your pet at a healthy weight to ensure they live a long happy life.

When is a dog considered to be overweight?

A dog is seen as overweight when you can no longer easily feel the ribs or cannot visualize a definitive waistline.

Are some breeds prone to obesity?

Any breed can become overweight if not fed or appropriately exercised, but some breeds are predisposed to certain illnesses that can cause weight gain.

Why should my dog have a weight loss consultation at the hospital?

Having a weight loss management consultation with a veterinarian can help shed light on why your pet is overweight as well as receiving a recommendation on how to help your dog healthily lose the extra weight.
