Improve your dog’s fitness
Dogs can fall into the trap of weight gain through the winter months and can very easily pile on the pounds. Excess fat on your pet is very damaging to their health and can in fact reduce their life expectancy. Weight can put pressure on your pets’ internal organs and can lead to health complications such as joint pain, diabetes, cancer, heart & lung problems etc. An overweight dog is at high risk of a shortened life expectancy. So, we have some tips for you to increase the time you have, to spend with your dog.
It is very important that you are aware of what best to feed your dog based on their breed and size. Get advice on the right brand of food to be feeding your dog as well as how frequent and the quantity. You may be overfeeding your dog or even under feeding your dog so if you are any bit unsure be sure to seek professional advice.
