Print 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.” Quick Tips 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. How We’re Helping Here are just a few of the things you’ll find in our Fit FurKeeps program: A Pinterest gallery of Petfinder’s pudgiest adoptable pets— perfect if you’re looking to adopt a workout buddy!
