Keep Your Pet Fit for Life
According to the Association of Pet Obesity Prevention, more than 54% of dogs and cats are overweight in the U.S. We want to help you get (or keep) your pet slim and fit so he’ll be part of your family “Fur-Keeps.”
Not sure where to start? Here are a few ways you can help your pet get (or stay) trim right away:
- Limit your pet’s table food to small amounts of healthy foods and adjust his or her regular meals accordingly.
- Instead of simply doling out treats, ask your pet to do something first (sit, give paw, etc.) and then reward that positive behavior with a small amount of food.
- Hide your cat’s food in different places around the house to encourage her hunting instincts.
- Feed your pet through a feeding toy puzzle rather than a bowl.
