How much does your pet weigh? Whether you own a dog or cat (or both), you should pay close attention to their weight. If your pet becomes obese or otherwise overweight, he or she may develop other medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease or even cancer.
Thankfully, however, there are pet obesity management solutions available to prevent this from happening.
According to the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention, a staggering 60% of all cats and 56% of all dogs in the United States are either overweight or obese.

It's become such a problem, in fact, that veterinarians across the country are sounding the alarm with their customers. If a dog or cat becomes overweight, it may develop other medical conditions, some of which can prove fatal.
As a result, veterinarians stress the importance of weight management for pets. If an owner allows his or her pet to become overweight, the pet may have a shorter life.
The good news is there are drugs and food supplements available to help manage a pet's weight. Feeding an overweight dog lean food, for example, can prove useful in lowering their weight.
All types of dog food generally contain some amount of fat. If the ratio of fat to lean meat is too high, however, it may cause the dog to gain weight.
Dog food with a low ratio of fat to lean meat -- meaning it consists mostly of lean meat -- is better for dogs because it promotes a healthy weight. With less fat, it doesn't have the same weight-increasing effect as dog food with a higher fat content.
